In addition to its print and online collections, the Hewes Library at Monmouth College is also home to unique and ever-changing art displays and exhibitions. Both of the Len G. Everett Galleries are located on the Upper Level, clearly visible from both the stairs and the elevator.
Gallery 203 houses items from Monmouth College's distinguished collection of art and antiquities, which includes bequests of works of antiquity from the personal collection of James Christie Shields (Class of 1949), traditional woodblock prints from Takashi Komatsu (Class of 1910), works of printmaking from the Carnegie Print Collection, contemporary Japanese prints and paintings from Dorothy and James Schramm, and artwork primarily of the Pacific from W. Stewart Riley (Class of 1945).
Gallery 204 is the larger of the two galleries, making it an appropriate site for the parade of varied and far-ranging exhibitions that visit it throughout the academic year. It showcases not only student artwork, but also exhibitions of regional and national artists.
The Everett Galleries are open during regular library hours: 7:30 a.m.-midnight, Monday-Thursday; 7:30 a.m.-5 p.m. on Friday; 9 a.m.-5 p.m. on Saturday; noon-midnight on Sunday.
“Mujeres Divinas,” a painting by Monmouth College senior Rubi Nogueron, was part of the recent “Fuerza en Tres” exhibit.
