The A. Wilfrid Johns Gallery holds regularly scheduled exhibits by faculty, sessional instructors, students, artists-in-residence and artistic scholars from across the university and the broader community.

UVic students benefit from instruction related to carefully curated exhibits, which includes graduate students who, for many years have held exhibitions in the gallery space during and at the end of their Masters degree. It is also a venue for exhibitions of recent work by Art Education faculty and instructors and artistic scholars working in a variety of artistic and pedagogical contexts.
