Downtowner Gallery is an art gallery and vibrant public venue that values, promotes, and supports artistic expression.
Envisioned as a gathering place for creativity and the arts in its many forms, we welcome everyone to wander through our doors to kindle their sense of wonder. We host art exhibitions, educational opportunities, and events, setting the scene for meaningful interactions among artists, students, and community audiences.
NEW EXHIBITS IN THE DOWNTOWNER GALLERY:
November 24 – January 15
For the holiday season, the Downtowner Gallery has been transformed into a gift shop. Art in the gallery is always available for purchase throughout the year, but the “Tiny Treasures” exhibit is art made by local artists with the gift-giving season directly in mind. Shop for one-of-a-kind pieces that make great stocking stuffers and that are light on the wallet.
These tiny little artworks show off all kinds of subject matter: abstract, animals, food, nature, travel, portraiture, introspection, beauty, dance, and other subjects, all thought-provoking and light-hearted at the same time.
This artwork is great for gifts, home décor updates, office party exchanges. We have framed photographic art, tiny oil paintings, cut paper art/bookmaking art, assemblage, creative reuse and repurposing, dioramas, clay sculpture, acrylic paints, and mixed media.
Here are a few of the unique gifts you can pick up from the Downtowner Gallery this holiday season:
- adorably miniature cactus gardens that fit in a bottle cap
- surrealistic tabletop sculptures and metallic steampunk animals
- vast landscape paintings…that are a mere 2 inches-squared
- artistic dioramas of landscapes and interiors, made using an Altoids tin and other repurposed items
- itty bitty pet portraits (and you can commission one from an artist for your little one!)
- lacquered digital art prints that can go on the wall or rest on a tabletop
- ..and as the art sells, our artists will replenish it with something new, beckoning visitors to visit often for more one-of-a-kinds!
For the holiday season, think of the Downtowner Gallery as an artist marketplace meets gift shop meets fine art gallery, plus the chance to shop locally from local artists!
Note about holiday hours: The Downtowner Gallery will be open extended hours for the holiday shopping season, to give visitors more time to shop in downtown Round Rock. December 1-19th, we’ll be open Tuesdays-Saturdays, noon-5pm. “Tiny Treasures” will be on exhibit through January 15th.
Thank you for supporting the arts in Round Rock by buying art gifts!
