McMurry University Art Galleries


Amy Graves Ryan Fine Arts Gallery

The Amy Graves Ryan Fine Arts Gallery is the main exhibition space at McMurry University. Along with serving as a teaching tool, the gallery exhibits the works of students, faculty, and local and regional artists. 

Most exhibits include artist lectures and receptions, allowing the artists to connect with both students and the Abilene community.

Gypsy Ted Gallery II

The Gypsy Ted Gallery is located on the first floor of Old Main in room 105. This galley is named for Gypsy Ted Sullivan Wylie who served McMurry as the first Dean of Fine Arts from 1923-1947. The gallery is run by a qualified student director who is responsible for all student exhibitions, art management, preparatory work and receptions. This gallery is open by appointment.
