Located on the Central Campus, the North Lake College Gallery showcases the work of established local artists as well as emerging student voices. Visitors of all ages are invited to experience new cultures, perspectives and realities. Admission is always free.
Our gallery goes a step beyond appreciation: you can meet the creators! Open to the public, our monthly artist receptions are think tanks for student inspiration, educational growth and collaboration.
Weekdays, 8 a.m. – 9 p.m.
Saturdays, 9 a.m. – 6 p.m.
Art at NLC
Rachel McClung-Beer helped establish the Central Campus art gallery in 1977. North Lake College’s first full-time art professor, McClung-Beer served on the DCCCD Planning Team that designed the college campus. Her idea for an art gallery originated after a large mudslide. The building’s original configuration shifted, creating an additional open space next to the Performance Hall. McClung-Beer asked the administration designate the space “Gallery” on the new set of plans. The rest is art history.
