Gormley Gallery at Notre Dame of Maryland University

Gormley Gallery provides visual arts programming for the campus, local, and regional arts community and the general public. In keeping with the mission of Notre Dame to educate leaders to transform the world, Gormley Gallery offers exhibitions, events, and workshops that engage with issues of gender, diversity, education, the environment, and social justice.


Every community owes its existence and strength to the generations before them, around the world, who contributed their hopes, dreams, and energy into making the history that led to this moment. Some were brought here against their will, some were drawn to migrate from their homes in hope of a better life, and some have lived on this land for more generations than can be counted. Truth and acknowledgment are critical in building mutual respect and connections across all barriers of heritage and difference. At Gormley Gallery, we believe it is important to create dialogue to honor those that have been historically and systemically disenfranchised. So, we acknowledge the truth that is often buried: We are on the ancestral lands of the Piscataway People, who were among the first in the Western Hemisphere. We are on indigenous land that was stolen from the Piscataway People by European colonists. We pay respects to Piscataway elders and ancestors. Please take a moment to consider the many legacies of violence, displacement, migration, and settlement that bring us together here today.


From September to May, Gormley Gallery is open to the public Monday through Friday from 8:30 am to 5:30 pm.
