The Russell Day Gallery serves to exhibit artwork that appeals to a variety of audiences, challenges the viewer, and explores subject matter and forms. Exhibits augment the college curriculum, recognize the diversity of the student population, and foster freedom of expression. The Gallery has a specific interest in displaying the work of artists from under-represented groups, alumni of Everett Community College, and work that is not generally accessible to the public through other regional galleries.
