Experience the visual world through the university's own art gallery. The Foster Gallery is the largest gallery in the Eau Claire area, and admission is free to Blugolds and the public. With a strong educational program, UW-Eau Claire students can take advantage of this learning space through exhibition receptions, open viewings, installation opportunities, guest speaker presentations, and the chance to participate in our annual juried student art show.
During the academic year, the Foster Gallery offers professional-level presentations of faculty and student work as well as external shows featuring nationally and internationally-recognized artists. Built in 1970, the Foster Gallery was named in honor of Ruth Foster, professor emeritus of art, who served on the faculty of Wisconsin State University-Eau Claire for 42 years and established The Foundation for the Appreciation of Art in Western Wisconsin.
Important Updates for Fall 2020
The Foster Gallery will continue its mission of student engagement and education during the fall 2020. It will remain open to serve UWEC students, faculty and staff. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a class visit.
