The Johnson Center Gallery is located on the main level of the George W. Johnson Center in the heart of Masonís Fairfax campus. The Fine Arts Gallery is located on the ground floor of the Fine Arts Building in room B104. Galleries are open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., unless otherwise noted, and by appointment. The Gallery Program is a division of Masonís College of Visual and Performing Arts, home to the Center for the Arts. The College of Visual and Performing Arts exists to create an academic environment in which the arts may be considered both as individual disciplines and as interdisciplinary forms that strengthen each other. Believing that an education in the arts is deepened by regular contact with the work of distinguished visiting artists, the College draws on a variety of professional presenting and producing units where artists from across the country and around the world regularly perform, give master classes, work with students during extended residencies, and interact with the community in a variety of other ways. These programs at the Center for the Arts Concert Hall, TheaterSpace, Galleries, Harris Theater, and other venues, provide a diverse selection of challenging and entertaining cultural experiences for the University community, as well as Northern Virginia and the greater Washington, D.C. area. The College houses four academic departments: Art and Visual Technology, Dance, Music and Theater.
