The University of Tampa’s Scarfone/Hartley Gallery invites students, alumni and community members to join the Friends of the Gallery. Member support helps us develop special events and exhibitions for the UT and Tampa community, such as Camp SpARTan, our ESE elementary school spring break arts immersion camp, and supports valuable scholarships for outstanding art students.

All Friends of the Gallery members receive invitations to lectures, special receptions and events hosted by the gallery, including opportunities to meet visiting artists and attend special exhibition previews.

Each year a guest artist creates an original (limited edition) art work for Patron contributors. Membership is January through December.

The University community and Tampa Bay art enthusiasts are thankful for the support and generosity provided by donors.

Friends of the Gallery donor designations are:

  • Student: Students are an integral part of the gallery and are encouraged to participate in all events.

  • Visionary Patron: A visionary patron is one who not only shares in the philosophy, but also sees the value of the arts on the campus of The University of Tampa and supports the greater UT vision of arts and culture programs.
