The Don B. Huntley Gallery provides a place for curated exhibitions of emerging and mid-career professional artists, while also being a facility for the College of Environmental Design’s departmental, faculty and student-based projects, related lectures and events.
Beyond the initial Huntley Collection show, the gallery is also used for showcasing art from other collections, and most recently highlighted the University Permanent Collections including the Ink & Clay Collection, the Raymond Burr and Robert Benevides Collection of Japanese Art, the Col. Jones Print and DPI Collections, the Bruce Jewett Collection of Beatrice Wood Ceramics, the Channing Gilson Collection of Mid-century Industrial Design, the Huntley Collection and the Neutra VDL Archives, all under the oversight of the College of Environmental Design. Other works from Huntley’s collection are regularly rotated among the various showings. Overall, the Huntley Gallery exhibits a considerable range of artwork. In the last year (2018-19), Gallery Curator Michele Cairella Fillmore featured solo exhibitions of: contemporary installation artist Olga Lah; the book art and personal book art collection of artist-curator John David O'Brien; a faculty-based group show titled Morocco: Crossroads and Meeting Ground, done as a result of a Fulbright-Hays Group Project Award Grant; and Positively 4th Street: An Encounter with Los Angeles’ Fourth Street Viaduct through Drawing, Painting, and Text featuring the collaborative works of URP faculty member Richard Willson, 2017 Dale Prize Winner DJ Waldie and Plein-air Painter Roderick Smith. The Huntley Gallery is a beautiful and dynamic addition to the Library and fits perfectly into the University’s guests invited to socialize and view the various exhibitions on display.
The Don B. Huntley Gallery is located on the 4th floor of Cal Poly Pomona University Library (Building 15) Room 4435, and is part of the College of Environmental Design, which houses the departments of Art, Architecture, Landscape Architecture, Urban and Regional Planning, and the Lyle Center for Regenerative Studies.
The staff of the Kellogg and Huntley Galleries is comprised of part-time undergraduate student assistants majoring or minoring in Art, Architecture, Art History and Visual Communication Design, under the oversight of full-time Curator Michele Cairella Fillmore.
