The Herndon Gallery is the epicenter of contemporary visual arts programing at Antioch College. By creating and hosting dynamic exhibitions that awaken curiosity and visual engagement with our world, The Herndon Gallery is a both a regional arts destination and an integral curricular asset at Antioch College, with exhibitions and arts programming that are highly-collaborative, interdisciplinary, and fully engaged with important contemporary global issues and ideas.

Programming is organized to facilitate dialogue and to foster connections between current world issues and contemporary art, locally, regionally, and globally through innovatively curated exhibitions, our Artists-in-Residence program, and Arts at Antioch curatorial and programming projects.

Antioch College students have the opportunity to engage in direct experiential learning through the Herndon Gallery Student Assistantship program, where they are directly involved in arts programming, curatorial work, and through directed research for each exhibition as gallery docents. As docents, students make contemporary art relevant and accessible to the public by helping visitors to navigate contemporary art. The Assistantship program offers students paid hands-on collaborative experience in the gallery setting, giving Antioch students the competitive edge when applying for prestigious arts co-ops, and broad-based contemporary arts management skills upon graduation.

Current Exhibition:

WORKS and WORKS II

The Herndon Gallery is pleased to present WORKS and WORKS II, a group exhibition featuring the creative labor of the artists of the Antioch College Arts division and Antioch College Faculty and Staff.

The exhibition runs November 9, 2017 - February 9, 2018 and includes many opportunities for the regional community to engage with the works and their makers, including opening and closing receptions, an evening of performances, and a series of FLASH talks which will feature the artists in the exhibition but also extend out to include ​​​​​​​​​​staff and faculty from beyond the arts division.  These fast-paced, image-rich “flash talks” will allow for a wide range of subjects and research interests to be shared in a brief amount of time, creating an atmosphere that is equal parts academic lecture and show-and-tell.  All events are free and open to the public.

Some works and artists in the exhibition include: public performance and documentation by Luisa Bieri, Instructor of Cooperative Education (Arts), printmaking and mixed media work by Forest Bright, Visiting Assistant Professor of Visual Art, multimedia sound and light sculptural installation by Michael Casselli, Assistant Professor of Sculpture and Installation, alternative process and lensless photography by Dennie Eagleson, Resident Scholar in Photography, an audio piece by Charles Fairbanks, Assistant Professor of Media Art, three handmade films by experimental animator and filmmaker Kelly Gallagher, Assistant Professor of Media Art, narrative panels and photographs by James Luckett, Adjunct Assistant Professor of Photography, performative readings and documentation of new work by Louise Smith, Associate Professor of Performance and contemplative film/installation by Jennifer Wenker, Creative Director of the Herndon Gallery.
