Phaze 2 Gallery operations will be modified to ensure the safety of our visitors and gallery attendants. We have limited daily hours in which attendants will be available to monitor the flow of traffic, maintain safe distancing, and mask usage while in the gallery space. We have a full programming schedule for the fall, however we will not be introducing our exhibits with traditional artist receptions.
The Gallery is open Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 2:00-4:00pm or by appointment. For more information about the exhibit or to schedule a visit contact the Gallery Director, Evan Boggess
The Phaze 2 Gallery is a cultural contact point between the Shepherdstown community and the outside world of contemporary art. We primarily exhibit emerging artists who are working to elevate the way our visitors think and see by challenging the popular concepts and traditions of their disciplines. Our intimate, versatile gallery venue offers artists the freedom to experiment and refine new approaches in their work before moving on to larger exhibition sites. As an instructional tool for the Department of Contemporary Art and Theater of Shepherd University, the Phaze 2 Gallery provides a discursive arena for our students, exhibiting artists, community, and art faculty.
