Clay – A Tribute to Toby Wallace (Oct)


October 3 – 31, 2016
Reception October 23, 2-4 pm

The late Toby Wallace was an integral part of the team at the TVAA Downtown Gallery, and at the time of his unexpected death, was the interim President of the Texas Visual Arts Association. Toby was a clay artist who continually strove to create new designs and new glazes for the pots he created, His work has been and continues to be one of our best selling items at the Gallery. This show is a tribute to his work as a clay artist and his contribution to the Gallery. We invite all artists who work with clay to submit for this show. We are looking for work that can be wall-mounted or is free-standing as well as work that is best displayed on pedestals.

Frida Kahlo – Without Boundaries (Nov)

Frida Kahlo – Without Boundaries
November 1 – 30, 2016
Reception November 6, 2-4 pm


Frida Kahlo has been a popular cult figure and artist for a variety of reasons: As an artist, Kahlo overcame much physical suffering as a young woman, and later, while struggling to find her way as an artist in a male-dominated culture, both personally and artistically. Research into her life reveals her strong interest in politics, art, animals, her rejection of society’s values, and her magnetic bond to her husband Diego Rivera. For artists wishing to explore this fascinating and surprising artist, a wealth of information is on the Internet, and images of her paintings are also available to those interested in seeing her creations, which are extraordinarily personal and autobiographical. For this show we are requesting art about, influenced by, or in the style of Frida Kahlo. All media welcomed.

A World Full of People
September 1 – 30, 2016
Reception: September 24, 2-4 pm


Our landscape is full of people of all types, traits and traditions. Imagine them as individuals or groups, and tell their story. Perhaps a portrait is called for, or a photograph of a crowd. Maybe your subject is active or completely immobile. People are the focus of this show, and it is your vision we want to experience!

A Day in June (June)

A Day In June
Exhibit: June 1-30
Reception: June 5, 2 to 4


“And what is so rare as a day in June? Then, if ever, come perfect days.”

Technically, a day in June is not that rare. They do account for about 1/12 of all the days we live. But the metaphorical day in June, that is rare. It’s that special day we hope to enjoy once in a great while. Our June show will celebrate these rare days, described so aptly in the poem by James Russell Lowell. We want images of blue skies, green fields, and rippling brooks, of course. But more than that, we’d like to have artwork inspired by everything that early summer brings: nesting birds, wild flowers, picnics, gardening, swimming, road trips – whatever that perfect June day means to you.
