Kohl Gallery has made it a goal to foster visual and cultural literacy, as well as an understanding and appreciation of the visual arts.
We offer art exhibitions and public programs, while also bringing visiting artists, art historians, critics and curators to campus for the education and enjoyment of the Washington College community, the community of Chestertown and beyond. Our hope is that we broaden the understanding of what art is today and inspire a discussion on the nature and meaning of art, and its importance to human existence.
Embracing both traditional and contemporary art, we strive to showcase contemporary curatorial practices and contemporary artwork in an academically enriched environment.
Our exhibitions inspire and welcome related programming designed in collaboration with other departments, programs, organizations or groups at Washington College and in the community. Our ultimate goal is to expand opportunities for students to study art history, contemporary curatorial and critical practices in art and art theory, museum methods and gallery operations.
