Galveston Art League was founded in 1914 with the mission of promoting visual arts and art education
within Galveston County and beyond. Hosting workshops is one way the nonprofit, all-volunteer Art
League fulfills its mission. Most are low-cost and some are free.
Each month the Art League’s gallery debuts a new exhibit; nine monthly exhibits are by members and
three are juried competitions open to members and nonmembers. The gallery was voted Best Art
Gallery in a recent Readers’ Choice contest held by the Galveston County Daily News.
