The AvS Gallery of Art will be open through July 23rd of 2016 at which time UConn has decided to eliminate the gallery and discontinue our programs after 24 years.
We cannot thank you enough for your many years of support.
Your contributions and memberships have been the principal means of support for the Alexey von Schlippe Gallery of Art.
Your generosity has been essential to our continuous presentation of Exhibitions, Opening Receptions, Artist Talks and Poetry Nights and we are grateful.
It has been an honor to have served the artists and the people of this region and beyond.
