William H. & Sonja Carlson Davidow '56
Fine Art Gallery

Open Monday - Friday, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.

The mission of the William H. and Sonja Carlson Davidow '56 Fine Art Gallery is to provide quality exhibitions and educational experiences for students and the greater community that deepen understanding of art, strengthen critical thinking, and broaden life experiences.

Our exhibitions highlight the creative spirit while raising awareness of the arts and the role of visual literacy and culture in a liberal arts environment. All of us at Colby-Sawyer want the visual arts to flourish and believe that the arts enrich our lives and serve as testimony to the beliefs and values of our culture, the world and the mysteries of the unknown.
