Maryland Hall presents art exhibitions that engage audiences on many levels, from community exhibits to curated group and solo shows in several galleries: the Chaney Gallery, the Martino Gallery, the Openshaw Balcony Gallery and Hallway Galleries. The gallery season features emerging and established artists in all media, from more accessible, traditional work, to work questions contemporary culture, methods, and ideas. The galleries are free and open to the public for viewing. We host bi-monthly artists’ receptions, and artwork is often for sale.
The Chaney Gallery is the largest of Maryland Hall’s professional galleries with 1,000 square feet of floor space; it can accommodate large group shows or shows featuring multiple artists. Located on the second floor and accessible by elevator, the Chaney Gallery has 12 foot ceilings and professional track lighting.
The 450 square foot Martino Gallery has 11 foot ceilings, professional track lighting and natural light. This gallery is also located on the second floor, accessible by elevator and is ideal for solo shows and small group exhibits.
