Fairbanks Gallery features exhibitions focusing on contemporary Northwest regional, national, and international artists , as well as Oregon State University art faculty and student exhibitions. The gallery provides the public, campus, and student communities diverse creative experiences and interactions with the inspired, inventive world of visual art. In many cases exhibitions are accompanied by gallery talks, and sometimes also by classroom workshops, critiques and public lectures. Past one-person exhibits have featured notable artists such as Ruth Bernhard, Sue Coe, Wolf Kahn, Jacob Lawrence, Robert Motherwell, Philip Pearlstein, Wayne Thiebauld, Jerry N. Uelsmann, Edward Weston, Jenny Schmid, and Bill Viola. Group shows have included artists Robert Colescott, Christo, Jim Dine, Eric Fischl, Roy de Forest, Helen Frankenthaler, Ann Hamilton, David Hockney, Jenny Holzer, Roy Lichtenstein, Henri Matisse, Peter Milton, Robert Motherwell, James Rosenquist, Frank Stella, Andy Warhol, and William Wegman.

Fairbanks Gallery is also host to many engaging and informative events. On the third Thursday of each month, the gallery is open extended hours in the evening as part of the Corvallis Arts Walk. Artist talks are frequently scheduled on that night, refreshments are offered and there is frequently a free, interactive activity. Upon request and schedule permitting, we can arrange for private group tours and gallery talks for visitors ranging from elementary school students to art museum docents.
