The Gallery is open to public visitors on weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., but may be closed without notice when in use by courses, special events or on Berea College holidays. To plan your visit you may email Heather Dent at or call 859-985-3140. You can also sign up for our monthly newsletter The Gravy Infusion to stay up to date on upcoming events and opportunities.
