The Charlotte and Phillip Hanes Art Gallery is located in Wake Forest University’s Scales Fine Arts Center, and is more often referred to as the Wake Forest University Fine Arts Gallery. The Gallery features about five exhibitions per school year, of work by WFU students, faculty and staff, as well as classic and contemporary artists worldwide.
The exhibition history of the Hanes represents the entire spectrum of visual art media and style, a diversity that remains today in its varied programming. Prominent artists featured in past exhibitions have included Pablo Picasso, Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, and Jasper Johns.
A number of workshops, lectures and symposia are offered in conjunction with exhibitions at the Gallery, held at various locations in the Scales Center. The Hanes also has a catalogue of publications, created to accompany select exhibits from its past; these include retrospectives of works collected from 1963 to the present, as well as collections focusing on particular artists, themes, or visual media.
