As a nonessential business, the Galveston Art League has kept its downtown Galveston
gallery closed in accordance with public-health mandates. But the art currently on
display inside the gallery is being exhibited virtually—and offered for sale—on its
Because this virtual tour wasn’t originally designed for sales purposes, details about the
artworks are a bit sketchy—pun intended—but Art League members encourage
inquiries about size, medium, and how to complete a sale at 409-938-1671 and
firstname.lastname@example.org. All of the 2-D art is framed and ready to hang.
The Art League may hold additional virtual art exhibits and sales of other works by its
members. If that happens, it will be publicized here and on the website.
Turning 106 years old in a few weeks, the Galveston Art League has always been an all-
volunteer, nonprofit organization founded to promote visual arts in Galveston County
and the larger region. As part of that mission, the Art League holds low-cost and free
workshops, promotes local artists, holds judged competitions, and changes its exhibits
monthly. The gallery, 2117A Postoffice St., stays open late for ArtWalks, hosting
hundreds of guests at each, and was named the People’s Choice Best Art Gallery by The
Galveston County Daily News in 2018.
The Galveston Art League depends on the income from commissions on sales as well as
revenue from its annual gala and membership fees to continue its support of area artists
and art education. Its membership ranks include non-artists as well as artists.
