Art Exhibition Spaces in North Texas

Norman Rockwell, "The Connoisseur"Museums and  private galleries that display contemporary art in the DFW Metroplex area are represented here. I list serious, full-time, galleries with frequent rotating exhibits that I visit. Most co-ops and less established galleries are not included here. I apologize to the galleries I overlooked.

There are other art galleries with imported oils, old masters and other popular works but I don’t list them because they are showing work that I find less interesting. I am always most enthused about work that surprises me in some way. My mission is to provide support to people who happen to live in North Texas and want to grow in their understanding of art in today’s world. You can find additional gallery listings on the search engines by putting in the style and the location or by visiting art dealers links.
