The Clara M. Eagle Gallery is a dramatic and exciting multi-level exhibition space. An integral part of the Department of Art, it serves as a unique source for experiencing fine art "first hand." Eagle Gallery is the home to two National Juried Shows. The Magic Silver is the biennial photography competition, now in its 28th year. The Kentucky National is a national juried show open to all media with an emphasis on new media.

Recent exhibitions in the main gallery featured contemporary art from all regions of the US, African art, contemporary tapestries from Spain, functional and nonfunctional ironwork, and contemporary woodworking. In addition to temporary shows, 1,200 artworks in the permanent collection, from photography to sculpture, provide a visual library for research. The Eagle Gallery is also the site for the annual spring student art exhibition sponsored by the Organization of Murray Art Students (OMAS). It is a yearly highlight where students receive numerous cash awards for artistic excellence and outstanding scholarship.

The Eagle and Curris Center Galleries have 8,292 square feet of exhibition space and support areas. There are four distinct exhibition spaces: the Main level Eagle Gallery and the Foyer Gallery on the sixth floor of the Fine Arts Center; the Upper level Eagle Gallery in the Fine Arts Center; and the Curris Center Gallery in the Curris Student Center.
