Located on the second floor of McKnight Art Center West, the Clayton Staples Gallery is a dynamic exhibition space for the work of visiting artists, faculty and master's students.

Every academic year, the School of Art, Design and Creative Industries produces four exhibitions of work by regional and national artists. In addition to exhibiting their work, visiting artists typically deliver a public lecture and conduct student critiques and/or facilitate a workshop or demonstration.

The Clayton Staples Gallery is also used as an exhibition space for graduate thesis shows.
