Located in building 300 the Shasta College Art Gallery has become one of the Art Department's strongest programs. Offering six exhibitions annually the gallery features art work by nationally and internationally renowned artists as well as the annual faculty and student shows. Seen as an educational program the gallery, which opened in its present location in 1968, offers students first hand exposure to relevant and important artists, galleries, collections, and art educational programs.
Through the gallery program the Shasta College Art Department has formed a substantial art collection. This original print and small painting collection adds to the educational experience for the art student at Shasta College. Works in the collection are used as examples in the classroom as well as periodically exhibited at Shasta College and other venues.
The exhibition program the Shasta College Art Department has been able to bring to the college and the north state such exhibits as Wayne Thiebaud Paintings, Clayton Bailey Sculpture, Bay Area Painters, Northern California Paper Makers and Jacob Lawrence Works on Paper.
