About Us

The Union Galleries are a showcase of JMU students’ experiences and creativity through photography. The Union Galleries seek to support all students by displaying their original photographs and providing them with a gallery experience. Our Gallery Directors work with photographers from different backgrounds, majors, years, experience levels and perspectives. Everyone is welcome to submit their photography.

Our exhibitions can be found in The Union’s Second Floor Lounge, Airport Lounge and TDU. Shows swap out each semester to feature new artists. If you’re interested, we’d love to hear from you!

Submit Your Work

Gallery shows include 15–18 visually and thematically cohesive photographs. If selected, students will be asked to write captions for their photos. Additionally, The Union Galleries will put together a bio that details the show's theme and artist's perspective. Each collection is displayed within The Union for approximately 6 weeks. Shows feature an opening reception with free refreshments for the artist, friends, family and the JMU public. All students are encouraged to submit regardless of photography experience or major.
