About Us

Our Vision

To create, support, and promote an inclusive community where lives are transformed and enriched through the shared experience of art.

How we support our vision:

We support visual artists by offering workshops and selecting original art for the gallery at the City of Round Rock’s Downtowner Art Gallery. We also place original art made by area artists in the Williamson County Jester Annex and Texas State University-Round Rock.

We assist the City of Round Rock by registering artists for pop up tents located on Prete Plaza and Chalk Walk’s competitive art show.

We host an Art Walk during November in  downtown Round Rock.

We depend on a growing cadre of volunteers to ensure we can attain this vision. If you’d like to volunteer in The Downtowner Gallery or for special events, sign up at https://signup.com/go/kFmxjsA

Contact us at info@roundrockarts.org if you’d like to serve on one of our  committees or the board. Our administrative and fiscal year runs April 1-March 31.

Our Organization and Plans for 2020-2021

We are a 501 (c) (3) organization formed in 2009 as the Round Rock Area Arts Council dba Round Rock Arts. We are located in The Downtowner Gallery at 231 E. Main, Ste 160,  in Round Rock Texas. The space is provided to us for hosting galleries and workshops by the City of Round Rock.

Galleries are managed by volunteers, two 10 hour staff members funded by RRA, and one 20 hour staff member funded and managed by the City of Round Rock. This person is the Downtowner Gallery Manager.

This year we have developed larger, active committees providing various services to the artists and patrons, including but not limited to:

  • Include more variety of art through group curated shows. The RFP guidelines will be posted the end of January 2020. We do not accept solo works.
  • Three calls for art (competitive) at Texas State University-Round Rock (TXST-R) once dates are approved by TXST-RR for the remainder of 2020
  • Expand the number and variety of workshops at The Downtowner Art Gallery.
  • Offer a gift shop with juried art

Several of the objectives require specialized skills, including experienced workshop leaders, someone with retail background and availability to communicate with artists wishing to show their art in the gift shop, and a curator for the Downtowner Gallery who also serves as a member of  the Gallery Committee in that capacity.
