The Emerson curates and hosts art exhibitions of significant community value. Emerging and established contemporary artists of regional and national recognition exhibit their work in the Emerson’s three gallery venues: the Jessie Wilber Gallery, the Weaver Room and the Emerson Lobby.

The Emerson displays a variety of exhibitions representing both traditional and innovative techniques, media, and content, with the intent of appealing to diverse audiences. As a non-profit art center, our galleries are educational in focus. Our exhibitions program as a whole is meaningful to viewers of all ages, backgrounds and abilities. The Emerson also is committed to deepening the understanding of the visual arts through educational outreach associated with our exhibits via gallery tours, artist presentations, workshops, classes, gallery text and exhibit brochures.
