Transcript * Ml at blaffer gallery c)a: arah Campbell Blaffer loved the arts. She was very dedicated to sharing that love with those who were less fortunate, and through her generosity, Blaffer Gallery was created in 1973. The purpose of having the gallery on campus as opposed to some other location is because Sarah had a desire to help educate students and make them more aware of the work of master artists and craftsmen. Her goal was to use the gallery as a teaching method. In her opinion this would make students capable of sustaining themselves more fully in body as well as in spirit. Located on the ground floor of the Fine Arts building in the UH campus, this gallery showed art created by current and former students as well as faculty and staff and by those who are not affiliated with the university at all. For instance, the gallery has sponsored several nationally touring shows with rather well known artists. Unfortunately, as with many benefits this university has to offer, a majority of students do not know Blaffer Gallery even exists. "I am so glad you Above: Most of the openings at Blaffer Gallery were pretty exciting. For example, this band played at an opening in February. Blaffer Gallery is not only patronized by UH students, but also by students from other schools. Photo by Gilbert Sifuentes. told me about this! I really like art and the fact that we have a gallery on campus makes it so convenient to see," said Amy Smith. However, there are students that know about the gallery and just don't go. "I'm not really into that kind of thing," said Dan Hollingsworth. "Plus, if I was, I don't have the time for it what with work and school." But there are those who know of and appreciate Sarah's gift to the university, like Jason Luther, who said," I liked it, it had some Native American stuff, and the artist was pretty damn good." Although Blaffer Gallery is small, it is an important facet of the Houston art scene. For example, it sponsors events at the College of Architechture and viewing trips by neighboring elementary schools. The gallery is open Tuesday through Friday from 10 am to 5 pm and on Saturday and Sunday from 1 pm to 5 pm. Hopefully, more people will learn of and go to Blaffer Gallery in the future. -Angela Snyder
