Mission and Advisory Panel

Our Mission

The mission of the UT Arlington/Fort Worth Center's Gallery 76102 is to engage and support art community in the City of Fort Worth and throughout North Texas through the following initiatives:

  • Provide the local community with a venue for exhibiting contemporary art
  • Provide an environment that encourages new ideas and trends
  • Present exhibitions focusing on works by artists with a connection to the North Texas area
  • Collaboration with area universities, colleges and alumni
  • Represent the cultural diversity of our community

Proposals are reviewed and exhibitions selections are determined by our Exhibition Advisory Panel.
While the majority of our exhibition schedule features artists with a connection to Fort Worth and the surrounding Metroplex, the Panel regularly invites artists from elsewhere to exhibit their work for the benefit of the local art community.
