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.

Originally hosted by Round Rock Arts and now sponsored by the City of Round Rock Arts and Culture, the Round Rock Chalk Walk Arts Festival is an annual showcase of the arts. Our nonprofit continues its active role in the festival, hosting the ever-popular attraction, the children’s chalking area.

We will also be assisting in “Mainly Art” (previously “Art Walk”) on Main Street and the downtown area of Round Rock during November.

We depend on a growing cadre of volunteers to ensure we can attain this vision. Contact us at RRAGalleries@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 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, one 20 hour staff members funded by RRA, and one 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 February 2021.
  • Quarterly calls for art (competitive) at Texas State University-Round Rock (TXST-R) once dates are approved by TXST-RR for the remainder of 2021.
  • Expand the number and variety of workshops at The Downtowner Art Gallery and via Zoom.

The current board members are:

President: Scott Feldman; president@roundrockarts.org
Vice-President-Membership & Treasurer: Larry Raper; membership@roundrockarts.org
Secretary: Cari Washburn
