Roberta's Art Gallery

Welcome to Roberta's Art Gallery! The gallery is currently open to the public and is hosting exhibits online and in-person.

Check out our lineup of live events below in the dropdowns, as well as our monthly craft blog, Roberta's Art Gallery's Craft Corner.


  • August 14-September 18
  • Artist: Cate Mahnke
    • "This collection is a snapshot of memories from my native land, and a reflection of my identity, in a new land. In my breadth of work, there is no particular style I fit into—I enjoy being volatile and experimental. As I transitioned into graphic design the past few years, I was able fuel my inspirations digitally. It became clear to me that “Nostalgia” wasn’t just a roadtrip to the past, but a foundation to my identity. This is my story–an immigrant romanticizing hues of nostalgia, while discovering a new narrative in a new home."

Street Scenes

  • September 28-October 24
  • Artist: Ryan Tuck
  • Virtual Reception: Thursday, October 1 • 5:00 pm • UC Facebook page
    • "Moving and contemplative portraits of city life. We long for respect, empathy and belonging in a society which seems to value these things less and less. I merge my film photography skills in a mixed media format to capture a collage of moments. Currently featuring New York with Chicago, San Francisco & more to come."

All exhibits and receptions are FREE and open to the public.

Attending certain events can earn students class credit.
