The Czurles-Nelson Gallery is an academic space dedicated to supporting the scholarly and cultural mission of the visual arts programs at SUNY Buffalo State and providing a forum for the creative and critical expression of the students and faculty of the visual arts.
The gallery is an engaging learning space and a supportive environment that encourages investigation, experimentation, and critical thinking, while providing comprehensive, hands-on exhibition experience.
Dedicated in 2009, the Czurles-Nelson Gallery honors Stanley A. Czurles, the late SUNY Distinguished Service Professor of art education, who founded Buffalo State’s art education program in 1931.
Through a combination of current and planned gifts, Czurles’s daughter, Barbara L. Czurles Nelson, and her late husband, Donald J. Nelson, established six annual scholarships—five benefiting a student in each of the five visual arts programs and the sixth going to a student in the Music Department—and continued support for the gallery itself.
