Featuring Local, Regional, and National Artists

 

The Arts Council has a variety of spaces and venues showcasing local and regional visual artists.

Exhibits encompass a full spectrum of artists’ professional experience: from beginning amateur to seasoned professional, our mission is to assist all levels of artist in continued learning through exhibition opportunity.  Our galleries focus on artists from the regional Wichita Falls area, while our Sculpture Garden, Cowboy True, and Mystery Art exhibits are open to artists from around the world.

We have one outdoor and five indoor galleries: The NorthLight Gallery, Galleria At The Forum, West End Studio, What’s Up Downstairs, The Patio, and The Sculpture Garden.  Throughout the summer we also have our free interactive kids' exhibit, ArtZeum.

All gallery exhibits are open to the public FREE OF CHARGE during regular open hours.
