Mission Statement: To integrate the visual arts into the cultural and educational life of the campus and community by providing quality exhibitions and programs that are diverse in style, content, and media; memorable, thought-provoking, and spiritually enriching; and of artistic originality, integrity, and excellence.
In September 2006, this spectacular venue for the display and study of artwork in every imaginable medium replaced the Concordia Gallery, which had been mounting exhibitions for 30 years. The Gallery offers an exciting calendar of exhibitions, lectures and programs for all ages. OSilas Gallery exhibitions are free and open to the public.
Three major exhibitions of diverse style, content, and media are held each gallery season from September to May. Typically one exhibition is held in the Fall semester and two exhibitions are held in the Spring semester.
Throughout the year we also encourage and support aspiring artists of all ages through our annual exhibitions of student work from Concordia College, the OSilas Art Studio, and our exceptional regional high school exhibition – StArt.
OSilas Gallery is also the home of Concerts at the OSilas, presented by Concordia Conservatory. This series features Concordia College faculty in fresh and innovative programming inspired by the Gallery’s art exhibition.
