Exhibitions

In 1989, the Arthur and Marjory Dadian Gallery was dedicated, thanks to the seminary’s willingness to make space available and match a generous gift from Arthur Dadian. This museum-quality gallery is a jewel-box setting for at least five exhibitions each year, showcasing the works of artists who explore the intersection of faith and art.

Please note: We are in the process of converting all of our gallery pages to our new format. During this time individual show pages may be unavailable. Images of the shows can be seen at our Flicker page.  Please forgive any inconvenience or irregularities that you may find.
