The Beth K. Stocker Art Gallery is a major center for visual art in Lorain County, showcasing art exhibitions by local, regional, and national artists. We also host annual LCCC student shows, the Lorain County Regional Scholastic Art Show and community and educational arts exhibitions. Our goal is to present a variety of outstanding art exhibitions and serve our students, the college community, and the greater community as a living, learning classroom. We invite you to enjoy the exhibits and to visit us often! Please check this website often or contact the Stocker Arts Center for any added gallery special events. The gallery has again been chosen by the readers of PuLse Magazine as the 2016 Best of Lorain County winner in the category of Best Gallery and is a 2017 finalist for that honor (winners to be named in the fall of 2017).
All Exhibitions and Receptions are free and open to the public. The Beth K. Stocker Art Gallery is open during exhibitions Mondays through Fridays from 10:30am to 2:30pm and by appointment. It is also open for many evening and weekend events.
