A Brief History:

Archway Gallery opened for business on April 1, 1976. It was the creation of a group of artists that had decided the time was right to take artistic control of the process of selling art. Archway’s first location was in the C.G. Jung Center at 5200 Montrose, which had a 600 sq-ft gallery space. The gallery’s name was derived from the arches in this space. From the start, Archway was conceived as an artist-owned gallery – it would be owned and operated by the artists who would take complete responsibility for the operation of the business. New members would buy shares in the business. (The original members also had to buy a track light head as part of the agreement!) Initially, Archway had 11 members: Elaine Adams, June Adler, Judy Bush, Mary Bush, Joan Calabro, Dorothy English, Joyce Gould, Janet Hassinger, Marianne Hornbuckle, Stephanie Nadolski, and John Zanders.

Its first mission statement: "Archway Gallery is a partnership of regionally and nationally recognized professional artists. The gallery concept evolved in order to provide a showplace for these talented members to exhibit their work and to insure artistic freedom and individual control of quality and content. These artists are committed to promoting art with the community and to educating the public and an understanding and sharing of aesthetic ideals and purposes."

Inviting space, positive and uplifting atmosphere, compelling art across a range of mediums and styles. One can feel the strong collegiality among the artists in residence, who themselves are open and engaging about their vision, art and processes. A lovely place to be.

I visited for a free Beethoven for All quartet by by Da Camera. The art was lovely and unique, I enjoyed exploring it before and after the show. Parking was an issue and I had to park a few blocks away in front of a house and hope to not get towed. For the event, the gallery was small and lacked seating. I stood for the entire concert but I still had a nice evening.

I've been here a few times for different events throughout the years. I really have nothing negative to say. It is not a huge Gallery but it is quite nice. The staff has always been super friendly and super approachable. This is a good venue to come see local and I will certainly keep coming here in the future.

Here you will find me near bout every Sunday morning 10-12 for life drawing. If the model doesn't show, l am a designated pitcher with attitude. I'm there on their openings and get cheese & wine with fine art and artists talks. It is a co-op run 7 days by it's own artists, and I'm never disappointed.

This is a wonderful place to see various artworks in Houston. Espcially, Kristie’s artwork is outstanding, and her description is so so nice. I and my wife really enjoy this gallery this morning. Strongly recommend!!!
