Greetings from America Painting by Mustafa ShaheenThe R.W. & Joyce Witt Gallery is located at Kadema Hall on the Sacramento State campus. Gallery hours are 12 to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, subject to change per exhibitor.  The Witt Gallery is entirely student-run

The gallery takes its name from Professor Raymond Woodrow "Woody" Witt, an emeritus art faculty, and his wife Joyce, who endowed the Raymond and Joyce Witt Scholarship. Raymond died in 1973 and Joyce died the following year. Joyce donated their estate to Sacramento State art students, endowing scholarships that are presented every year at the Student Award exhibition presentations.  The Witt Gallery has operated since the "Art Building" - now Kadema Hall - was built in 1962.

The Witt gallery serves as a showcase for student-run exhibits based on applications submitted in response to the call for exhibition proposals each spring semester. Solo, group and curated exhibitions are welcome from students and faculty. Witt Gallery exhibitors are responsible for funding, publicizing, and installing their shows. 

Witt Gallery proposals are accepted by the Gallery Committee each spring for consideration for the following academic year. Refer to the Witt Gallery Exhibition Guide and to the Witt Gallery Application for details and deadlines.
