The Wright Gallery, located on the second floor of the College of Architecture's Langford A building, is the college's showcase for the visual arts. The gallery regularly exhibits art created by college faculty and students, as well as traveling exhibits from museums and galleries throughout the world.
The gallery's 2008 renovation was made possible by a generous gift from James Wright, a retired senior partner with Page Sutherland Page who earned a Bachelor of Architecture degree from Texas A&M in 1954, and his wife Mary.
The Wright Gallery supports the college's role as the home of visual arts education at Texas A&M and also provides a venue for lectures, studio reviews and other special events.
The Creative Photograph in Archaeology, an exhibition that brings together for the first time new ways of seeing archaeological sites, monuments and sculpture, from the invention of photography to the present day.
The exhibit features the work of such influential photographers such as Robertson, Konstantinou, Stillman, Boissonnas, Hege, List, Hellner and Mavrommatis, shows new tendencies in the representation of antiquities, and suggests a new way of seeing beyond the obvious and revealing the creative presence of the photographer.
The exhibition is curated by Costis Antoniadis and is organized by Socratis Mavrommatis and the Benaki Museum in Athens, in collaboration with Fairfield University.
