Immerse In Art

The Gallery acts as a focal point for ideas presented in all manner of styles, which operate on both intellectual and tangible levels. This availability of art is not only an important aspect of culture for the broader community who view it, but also a valuable part of maintaining a healthy collegial environment for the CBC campus community.

The Esvelt Gallery brings art from visiting artists, faculty, and students through sponsorship from ASCBC and the Art Department. Our desire is to provide an artistic experience through a variety of exhibitions, artist lectures, workshops, and demonstrations, all of which are open to the student body and the public.

Admission is free and the public is welcome.

Art is an experience

Current Exhibit

Working Together: An exhibition of artwork by Chris Theiss and Kristin L. Theiss

April 5 through May 6 

Esvelt Gallery is proud to present the work of  Chris Theiss and Kristin L. Theiss.

From the moment that Kristin and Chris first met, the creative sparks began to fly. They married and began a collaboration that has continued to develop and grow.

This exhibit presents examples of both the work that they consciously design together, focusing on their unique skill sets, as well as work that they both consider personal and more self-directed.

One-of-a-kind fine artworks consisting of thread and watercolor animal drawings on canvas as well as faceted figurative porcelain teapots.

In addition to these, there will also be many examples of silkscreen printed textiles and cast porcelain vessels that are products of the design business that Kristin and Chris have formed.
