About Art League Houston

Art League Houston (ALH) was founded in 1948 and incorporated as a non-profit organization in 1953. Each season, ALH presents contemporary art in a variety of media in its gallery spaces and outdoor sculpture garden. Founded in 1968, the Art League School offers a variety of classes for both the professional and novice student. Classes include printmaking, jewelry, painting in a variety of media and styles, drawing, and collage. In 1983, Art League Houston created the Texas Artist of the Year award as a dynamic annual project documenting Texas art history. Past honorees include Joseph Havel, Keith Carter, Melissa Miller, Dixie Friend Gay, Al Souza, Luis Jimenez, Lucas Johnson, Sharon Kopriva, Bert L. Long, Jr., Jesús Moroles, and Dr. John Biggers. ALH’s 2013 Texas Artist of the Year is Rachel Hecker. ALH also contributes to the community through outreach and education initiatives. Its Healing Art program, established in 1991, provides free weekly art classes for adults living with chronic illness and/or physical disabilities.

In 2007, ALH built a new facility on its existing site on Montrose Blvd. The new building, with additional gallery and studio space, has meant that ALH can offer more programming to the community than in past years. In addition, the new facility has an on-site coffee house leased to Inversion Coffee House and an attractive outdoor patio, which serves as a meeting place for ALH students and visitors. ALH implements programming for youth and families. It provides life drawing classes for high school students, free art workshops for families, and art residencies in H.I.S.D. Title I schools. In 2010, ALH initiated affordable Summer for children ages 5-12.
