About Us

Centrally located on the corner of 12th and Shoal Creek, Davis Gallery is a stimulating setting for contemplation and conversation through fine contemporary art. The permanent on-site collection, and rotating exhibitions represent the diversity and talent the gallery has to offer. This comfortable, expansive space also provides a meeting ground for many of the community's non-profit organizations including AMOA/Arthouse, Ballet Austin and the Austin Art Alliance.
