The works on display are evidence of the formal investigation, exploration and interpretation of personal ideas through perceptual, technical and formal skills. The Department of Fine Arts' mission is to maintain an environment where artists are committed to the pursuit of teaching, research, and creative work. A faculty, made up of professional artists, provide a high quality studio education to students at the foundation, undergraduate, and graduate levels through formal, aesthetic, technical, and intellectual training. 

The emphasis of the CVPA Campus Gallery is given to works that celebrate the talents and creativity of members of the CVPA community. Gallery hours are Monday through Thursday 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Friday 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. These hours are through the academic year when classes are in session.
