Art Galleries

Art students at Montgomery College find themselves well prepared as they move on to four-year schools from our programs. Nowhere is this more evident than the walls and display cases of the many art galleries on each of our campuses. These galleries are open to the public to enjoy and explore. We also bring in special shows throughout the year to compliment the work on regular display.
