O'Kane Gallery - Previous Exhibitions

The Harry W. O'Kane Gallery, established in 1970, was made possible by gifts from Harry W. O'Kane, Mary W. Bingman, and the Humphreys Foundation. Annually, five to six exhibitions that meet the diverse interests of the students, faculty, and staff of the University of Houston-Downtown and the downtown Houston community are presented by emerging, established, and historical artists. Exhibitions in all media provide educational support to various university courses and to nearby schools, while the gallery, itself, functions as a site for university forums, meetings and receptions. Exhibitions are free and open to the public. Contact the gallery submit a proposal.
