About The Galleries

The Texas State Galleries are physically located within the School of Art and Design at Texas State University.  These sister spaces – with their 18’ ceilings and atrium lobby – provide over 3,000 square feet of museum quality exhibition space.  The galleries, which are used separately for individual exhibitions and in tandem for combined exhibitions, will be host to a total of 16 varied exhibitions throughout the Fall and Spring semesters.  In addition to this ambitious schedule, the galleries continue to take a leading role in fostering discourse among artists, art & design professionals, and students by hosting a number of visiting artist’s lectures and workshops throughout the academic year.

The Texas State Galleries and the Art and Design Lecture Series are an integral part of the learning process for students, as well as a source of enrichment for the entire University and local community.  While providing exhibitions that would not otherwise be readily available in the area, Texas State Galleries enhance the academic environment by showing the work of prominent artists with established exhibition records, working in a wide range of media and styles as well as annual exhibitions by faculty, students, and alumni.
