University of New England - Innovation for a Healthier Planet

Portland Campus

The UNE Art Gallery on the Portland Campus was established in 1977 as the Joan Whitney Payson Gallery of Art. This unique structure was designed by Thomas Larson and built by The Architects Collaborative. 

The gallery has a rich history of exhibitions, houses our permanent collection, and continues to bring imaginative and thought-provoking shows to UNE and to the public.
