Fairbanks Gallery hosts many engaging and informative events. Pondering the Muse is a series of talks that examine the aesthetic and symbolic aspects of the artwork on display. These informal discussions also explore the artist’s intent, historical references, design theories, and technical processes. All of the talks in this series are free and open to the public.


In addition, we arrange talks for visitors ranging from elementary school students to art museum docents in specially scheduled presentations.


Hours are 8am-5pm, Monday-Friday.  Occasionally the gallery will be closed during holidays and term breaks. To confirm gallery hours call (541) 737-4745.
