About Us

Our Vision

We will be the foremost provider and supporter of visual arts opportunities for our area artists.  We will work closely with our partners in advocating for all performing arts and cultural activities in  Round Rock.

We support the visual artists by offering workshops at ArtSpace and managing gallery space at ArtSpace, Jester Justice Center, and Texas State University-Round Rock.

The gallery spaces consist of curated works and competitive calls for art, the latter  with cash awards. We also assist with registering artists for pop up tents located on Prete Plaza, Art Walk, and other activities sponsored by our partners, the latter often by cross promotion.

We assist with events that include performing artists such as Chalk Walk and similar activities based on availability of volunteers.

We depend on a growing cadre of volunteers to ensure we can attain this vision. Contact us at info@roundrockarts.org if you’d like to serve on the committee or the board. Our administrative and fiscal year runs April 1-March 31.

 

Our Organization and Plans for 2019-2020

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 ArtSpace, located at 231 E. Main Street in Round Rock Texas. The space is provided by the City of Round Rock.

Galleries are managed by volunteers. In 2019 we are developing larger committees in order to take on various services to the artists and patrons, including but not limited to: More groups’ and artists’ works being hung at Texas State University-Round Rock with the expansion of another hall for hanging art; more calls for art in 2020 at Jester and continuing with Saturday openings in that venue; expanding workshops at ArtSpace and cordoning off part of the footprint at ArtSpace for fixed workshop space; reintroducing the art gift shop with curated pieces on two month rotations once a POS system is installed and an inventory system created (goal: fall 2019).

In addition, we will assist with Chalk Walk to be held at the Dell Diamond October 4-5, focusing on recruiting artist vendors and chalk artists. Round Rock Arts will also introduce an Art Car Show. Chalk Walk  has grown so large that the city will assume leadership of this event.

New to 2018-19 will be walking tours of the sculpture on the east end of downtown (fall 2019). We assist with the pop up tents by scheduling the artists and we assist with Art Walk. We will also assist the city with Sculptfest 2019.

In terms of our relationship with other arts non-profits, visual and performing, located in Round Rock, we will host working lunches with guest speakers on social media, grant writing, and other seminars so that all the art nonprofits located in Round Rock can be inspired to move forward with promoting their presence and capacity to apply for funding . The seminars also allow us to identify when we can help each other, even if it is simply cross promoting all of the events and galleries in Round Rock.
