 Art at McIntire

In keeping with the tradition of Thomas Jefferson's model and the McIntire School of Commerce's vision of developing well-rounded students, we support the diversity of art and its interaction with commerce. The John P. and Stephanie F. Connaughton Gallery, located on the third floor of Robertson Hall, is the perfect space for showcasing art generated by McIntire and UVA students. Featured exhibits in this art gallery are on a rotating basis and contingent upon the McIntire Art and Commerce (MAC) Committee's approval. 

Current Art Exhibits

The McIntire Art and Commerce committee proudly exhibits the work of Richard Crozier. Mr. Crozier has not stopped capturing change around Charlottesville and the nearby landscape through his painting since retiring from the McIntire Department of Art at UVA’s College and Graduate School of Arts & Sciences in January 2011. Dick taught beginning drawing and upper-level painting since 1974.

He is attracted to the different light at various times of day, changes in the landscape as the seasons come and go, and changes in the built environment. The Blue Ridge Mountains are also subjects of his work.

Mr. Crozier describes his work as a “one picture project – a portrait of Charlottesville.” After 40+ years, he still is creating his visual diary. “The more I do, the less I am inclined to do other things. The more I paint, the more I find interesting.” There is constant change in our area, and it keeps him busy.

McIntire Juried Photography Exhibit
The committee unveiled its first juried photography exhibit, which features photography by McIntire faculty, staff, and students, in August 2010. The 2014 exhibit is on display in the 200-level of Rouss & Robertson Halls. New to this year's exhibit are six photographs selected by the MAC interns to showcase. The photographs, located on Rouss Hall's fourth floor, are by Jack Armstrong, Veronica Correa, Faby Chaillo, and Carol Yicheng Zhang.
A call for 2015 submissions will be made in early May 2015.
