The Sawhill Memorial Gallery stands in memory to the original Sawhill Gallery, which stood just steps away, and to the directors who oversaw its programming.

The wood-lined walls mimic those that lined the old gallery's walls; its accessible location is an homage to Stuart Downs and Gary Freeburg, who played major roles in elevating the visibility of the arts within the School of Art, Design and Art History and throughout the JMU campus.  This humble nod affirms SADAH as a place of vital discussion in the visual and all that the visual asks of us.
