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.
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.
