Previous Exhibits

This summer, GAC celebrates Clint Willour’s 25th anniversary as curator with two distinctive exhibitions.  Twenty Five: A Celebration opens Saturday, June 4th and features a diverse selection of prominent Texas artists whom Willour has curated during his tenure at GAC.  The reception will be from 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM with a curator's talk beginning at 6:30. This exhibition will be followed by Twenty Five: A Conclusion, which opens July 16th and will celebrate Willour’s retirement.

Willour has curated approximately 4000 artists in 469 exhibitions for Galveston Arts Center. His curatorial expertise has been pivotal for artists, collectors and viewers throughout Texas.   Highly respected for his excellent understanding and promotion of outstanding contemporary visual art, he has given exhibitions to countless emerging, mid-career, and established artists, some of whom have since achieved national and international prominence. 

Both Summer Shows will be a retrospective of artists Willour has worked with over the past 25 years including:  David Bates, Mary McCleary, Luis Jimenez, Ann Stautberg, and David McGee. A full list of artists for Twenty Five: A Celebration can be found below.

While his discerning eye has won him respect from the Art World at large, it is also his amiable character that has garnered admiration from all who have known and worked with Willour.  Never a flatterer, his approach is consistently honest without pomp or pretention, resulting in remarkably curated exhibitions that reveal the true nature of the artist or artists involved.

Galveston Arts Center is fortunate to have had Clint's creative leadership for the last quarter century.  We invite everyone to come and celebrate his accomplishments this summer with two exhibitions that honor one of our state's most respected curators and featuring some of its most renowned artists.
