The Art Galleries at TCU

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and TCU’s public health initiative to help protect the health and well-being of our community, The Art Galleries at TCU will be unable to welcome public audiences in-person for any exhibitions or events this fall and until further notice.

While we are sad not to have you with us in person, we will make sure you have lots of virtual and digital options to engage with the work of our students, faculty and guest artists. The Art Galleries will continue to showcase high quality art and artistic practice by contemporary artists.

Alongside the School of Art Faculty, Gallery Staff will continue to support the educational mission of the university at this challenging time. We are planning to meet the curricular needs of our students in a safe, socially distanced manner. For example, we will be offering “by-appointment only” viewings for current TCU students, faculty, and staff for both Moudy Gallery and Fort Worth Contemporary Arts. We will also be helping students explore and engage with online options for documenting and presenting their own artworks.

Please stay in touch and keep up with the latest news from the galleries by following us on social media.

During the Spring 2020 semester, we were unable to host the thesis exhibitions of our four graduating MFA students because of TCU’s Covid-19 closure.

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.
