The Elizabeth C. and Peter Tower Gallery, combined with the Karamanoukian Gallery space, provides immediate access to regional, national, and international artists exhibiting in a range of fine and applied arts media that benefits both Daemen students and the community at large.

Join the Department for the Visual & Performing Arts as they celebrate the opening of the Richard Kersting Exhibit.
Richard Kersting creates small, cabinet, and miniature size paintings using oil or egg tempera as the medium. The size of each piece becomes a more intimate space for the work to be read, rather than glanced at. His subject matter is the symbolic and surrealist treatment of said subject, with the unconscious and subconscious coming into play.
This event is free and open to the public.
