Mercy Gallery

The Sue and Eugene Mercy Jr. Gallery, dedicated in honor of former Loomis Chaffee Trustee Eugene Mercy Jr. ’55 and his wife, Sue, is located in the Richmond Art Center — the campus hub for the visual arts program. Throughout the year, the Mercy Gallery invites artists who work in a wide variety of media and represent diverse artistic endeavors and cultural and geographic perspectives to exhibit and share their art with our community. Often these artists also participate in our Visiting Artists program — creating their art alongside our students.
