The Runnels Gallery is Eastern New Mexico University's premier campus art gallery. Located within the Golden Student Success Center (GSSC), we feature a variety of creative visual artwork from our students, faculty and staff, alumni and notable guest artists.
Our mission is to provide the ENMU campus and surrounding communities' access to diverse and creative visual works through a variety of exhibitions, guest artist lectures and master workshops. The focus of the gallery is to connect all visitors with local, regional and national artists and designers. Furthermore, the gallery believes art is not limited to a static experience; rather participation in the creative process is essential to unlocking one's own creative abilities.
Our year-round gallery is open during GSSC hours of operation. Admission is free and open to the public.
