The San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts, Gallery Verde, 417 S.Oakes
This commercial building was constructed in the early 1920's and over the years has been the location of a number of retail businesses. The property had gone into severe decline and virtual abandonment until 2002 when it was acquired by the San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts. In a joint venture with the Upper Colorado River Authority, the museum restored this building and for over seven years it was used as an education center by the UCRA. The museum will now operate an art gallery at this location. In recognition of the numerous environmentally based exhibitions and programs that have taken place here, we have decided to name the space Gallery Verde.
Gallery Verde is looked upon as a gallery of the museum and is to be used to highlight the work of outstanding individuals, groups and contemporary collections. Exhibitions in Gallery Verde will provide educational content, inspiration and information to the community in accordance with the museum's mission. The gallery space is meant to create awareness in all aspects of environmental knowledge including human social interaction and concerns. Artists, groups and collections are expected to be of the highest qualities and presented professionally.
Our premier exhibit features over forty works created by leading artists from around the country who participate in the museum's first national "En Plein Air" competition. Fittingly the artists have reflected on the constructed as well as natural environments of our region.
