Gallery Information and Hours

An airy, light-filled contemporary gallery located off the main lobby of Dibden Center for the Arts, the Julian Scott Memorial Gallery is Northern Vermont University’s main visual arts exhibit venue. It hosts exhibits by B.F.A. and M.F.A. art students as well as work by NVU faculty and visual artists from around the region and the world.

The gallery is named for one of Vermont’s most notable artists. Julian Scott (1846-1901) lived in Johnson and was a decorated soldier and a drummer during the Civil War as well as an accomplished painter and Civil War artist. One of his largest paintings of the Civil War, The Battle of Cedar Creek, graces the lobby of the Vermont State House in Montpelier.
