The mission of The Art Gallery at Rivier University is to present exhibitions that complement and enhance the university’s academic offerings, particularly those in art history, studio art, and design. It furthermore collects, administers, stores, and preserves the Rivier University Permanent Collection of Art for purposes of study, research, and exhibition.
The Art Gallery produces four to five exhibitions each academic year. Often accompanied by written commentary, lectures, gallery talks, or panel discussions, exhibitions aim to educate students, the broader campus community, and the general public about both historic and emerging art forms.

– The Professional Association for Design
The AIGA is America’s oldest and largest professional membership organization for design as visual communication and strategic advantage, and ultimately as a vital cultural force. It amplifies the voice of design by defining global standards and ethical practices. Nationally it also establishes criteria for higher education in design, enhances professional development, and sponsors the publication of powerful tools and resources. The Art Gallery is pleased to present the AIGA’s 2013 juried exhibition of design by New England practitioners. Through the theme That Was/This Is the work celebrates the tenth anniversary of the organization’s Boston Chapter. Participants in this prestigious, nationally recognized competition are given opportunities for publishing their work in print and online in addition to displaying it in the traveling exhibition currently on view at Rivier.
