The Quigley Gallery is located in Quigley Hall of Western State Colorado University in Gunnison Colorado. The Quigley Gallery is open 9AM – 5PM Monday through Friday.

Narrative Paintings encompass those works that express concepts, ideas, philosophies, stories, or any number of content-texts. The medium employs the power of visual images to provoke thoughts, arouse feelings, and stimulate the intellect. A narrative work can call into question commonly accepted beliefs, relate histories, or challenge authority.
The exhibition has been organized across four literary/philosophical motifs: 1) The Apollonian/Dionysian Dichotomy; 2) The End of Authenticity; 3) The Tragedy of History; and 4) Attempts to Transcend the Individual. Employed in these contexts, Narrative Art is able to visually communicate through pictorial composition, across time and circumstance, challenging the present and the future.
