The Art Galleries at TCU

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, The Art Galleries at TCU are unable to welcome public audiences in-person for any exhibitions or events this Spring and until further notice. While we miss seeing you in-person in the Galleries, we are working hard to make sure you have lots of virtual and digital options to engage with the work of our students, faculty and guest artists.

 

Alongside the School of Art Faculty, Gallery Staff continue to support the educational mission of the university at this challenging time. We are meeting the curricular needs of our students in a safe, socially distanced manner. Highlights to look forward to this semester include virtual presentation of exhibitions featuring works by our MFA students, an exhibition curated by our MA Art History students, and our Annual Juried Student Exhibition. We will also premiere new artwork by guest artist Christie Blizzard in the exhibition “Let My Body Eat The Sun.” Check out all of our Upcoming Events to see everything happening this semester! You can also revisit all of our Fall 2020 exhibitions and events through the accordion below.

The Fall 2020 semester at The Art Galleries at TCU looked a little different. Both Fort Worth Contemporary Arts and Moudy Gallery were either closed or operated in limited capacities throughout the year because of the Covid-19 pandemic. However we were able to bring some of our normal programing online and commissioned new digital pieces, while also continuing to support our graduating students. You can access all of our virtual Fall 2020 exhibitions and programs below!

Moudy Gallery

2019 Juried Studio Art Exhibition

Juried Studio Art Exhibition

 

Located in the same building that houses the School of Art, Moudy Gallery showcases student work, including exhibitions by undergraduates and MFA students. This 900-square-foot space also functions as a responsive place for one-off or pop-up projects that students and faculty develop. TCU regularly shows its support for local professional artists by providing a collaborative environment in the Moudy Gallery as a testing ground for work-in-progress. Exhibitions or events of this kind help artists get involved in numerous ways and significantly benefit TCU students by enabling them to develop their professional networks with the local creative community.

 

Fort Worth Contemporary Arts

Exhibition of RAWIYA in Fort Worth Contemporary Arts

RAWIYA, “We Do Not Choose Our Dictators”

 

Fort Worth Contemporary Arts (FWCA) is a satellite exhibition space located a few blocks from the School of Art, on the edge of the TCU campus. Situated on West Berry Street, a busy urban corridor, this 2,000-square-foot gallery is TCU’s public-facing art venue. It offers a great opportunity for students, faculty, staff and alumni to engage with the Dallas-Fort Worth community.

At FWCA, the curatorial focus revolves around national and international artists at different stages of their career. It often includes work that has never been shown in Texas before or that is made on-site during a residency period. This concentration means students have close access to high-quality art and can critically engage with artists on a one-on-one basis in the gallery.

Fort Worth Contemporary Arts is located at 2900 W. Berry St. on the edge of the TCU Campus, Fort Worth, TX 76109.

Opportunities for Students

Students can volunteer or intern as gallery attendants. Interns are typically assigned responsibilities and research, such as overseeing social media for the galleries and researching artists’ work for future exhibition projects.

In addition, graduate students are assigned to the galleries each semester and complete weekly tasks including installation/deinstallation of exhibitions, delivery of live events and maintenance of the permanent art collection.

The Art Galleries at TCU are home to exhibitions from regional and international artists, students, faculty and alumni. To see the upcoming exhibitions in the galleries, please visit our event calendar.
