Texas City’s Sixth Street Welcomes Art League
Posted In: Texas City News Posted by Pam Moore on 08/12/2016

Texas City has been busy with their revitalization of their historic Sixth Street by adding entertainment and new businesses. New streets, sidewalks, and vintage-style light posts are just a few of the Sixth Street updates.

A familiar name in the Art Community has recently joined businesses on Sixth Street. The Galveston Arts Center (GAC), received approval from the Texas City Economic Development Corporation (TCEDC) and will be opening a gallery at 611 Sixth Street North. The nonprofit organization, incorporated in 1986, will occupy the building for at least 5 years while also maintaining its main Gallery on 2127 Strand in Galveston. GAC presents contemporary art created by local artists, provides art education and has produced ArtWalk(s) for over 25 years in Galveston.

After Hurricane Ike “finished” with Galveston Island in 2008, GAC had more than 4 feet of water inside the facility ruining artwork, shop inventory, and leaving nasty residue from the mucky gulf water left behind; restoration was completed in 2015. The historic building was donated by the Junior League of Galveston County and has become a venue for local artists to display their work to the public with free admission at all times.

The Galveston Art League of Sixth Street, as it will be called, is anticipated to be open this fall. While further transformation continues on Sixth Street, the organization will showcase members’ art, with new art arriving each month. The center will be open Thursday through Sunday, from 12 pm to 6 pm. The Texas City Art Festival will celebrate a new associate in Spring 2017.
