Dedo Maranville Fine Arts Gallery

The Valdosta State University Dedo Maranville Fine Arts Gallery is committed to providing a teaching and learning environment serving a diverse student body and local audience. The Gallery fills a unique niche in the region as a venue for exhibitions showcasing student artwork as well as art from outside the region.
Diverse exhibitions serve both the state and regional community by providing cultural enrichment and expanded educational opportunities to everyone.

Located in the Fine Arts Building (on the first floor - southwest corner), the gallery has been completely renovated and updated with state of the art lighting, sound and video systems, climate controls, security system and 'Mila' portable walls.

The Dedo Maranville Fine Arts Gallery is proud to kick off the 2018-19 Arts Season with the Art Faculty Exhibition. This multi-media exhibition will feature a wide variety of media, aesthetic outlooks and visual expression, representing the broad range of interests and talents of the VSU Art faculty. This very popular annual event is where art faculty members show that they don’t just “talk the talk,” but also “walk the walk,” as all studio instructors are also practicing artists.

Students, colleagues and community members alike enjoy seeing the exciting new work by full and part-time art faculty, and listening to live Jazz by the VSU Faculty Jazz Combo.

Come celebrate the arts with us!

Gallery Hours: Monday-Thursday: 8:30am-5:30pm, Friday: 8:30am-3pm
