The Gallery at the J is devoted to expanding and enriching cultural life in Austin.  By providing space to Jewish and Non Jewish artists, the Gallery at the J offers the community the opportunity to explore the richness and diversity of art from a broad range of mediums. Through solo and group exhibitions the Gallery serves as a vehicle to discover many avenues of artistic expression, finding common threads to Jewish experience, identity and culture.  The gallery presents exhibitions and programming that aim to enhance knowledge, deepen understanding, expand art forms and take full advantage of each vibrant exhibition season.
