Since 1977, the Saint Mary’s College of California Museum of Art has been known for varied and exemplary exhibitions, publications and educational programs. The Museum is accredited by the American Association of Museums.
The Gallery endeavors to be a significant and diverse resource for visual arts and life-long learning to the Saint Mary’s College community, our San Francisco Bay Area communities and beyond.
The Museum is fortunate to own a comprehensive collection of works by William Keith (b. Scotland 1838 – d. Berkeley 1911). The 180 paintings by California’s late 19th century landscape master highlight the permanent collection of more than 4500 works of art. The collection also includes nearly 600 ethnographic objects, with major concentrations from Africa and Oceania, religious objects including 15 c. German Gothic statuary and Russian icons, 150 Andy Warhol photographs and works by noted contemporary California artists.
Saint Mary’s College Museum of Art hosts a captivating series of four unique exhibits in the main galleries each year developed around several thematic interests: California regional landscapes, contemporary art, historical/classical art, religious art, cultural and ethnic diversity and cross-disciplinary subject matter. Exhibitions in the Keith Gallery and the new galleries rotate twice a year. The Museum also educational programs: lectures, panels, tours, and workshops. Exhibitions are enriched by extensive wall text, catalogs, study tables and videos.
