Upcoming Exhibition

Art214 Juried Exhibition

Exhibition Dates: April 1 – May 28 | Tuesdays – Saturdays | 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

The City of Dallas Office of Arts and Culture (OAC) is proud to present the 2022 ART214 Juried Exhibition, a multi-venue collaborative project presented during Dallas Arts Month.

ART214 showcases the works of artists who live in Dallas and the greater North Texas region. Through this exhibition, OAC hopes to discover and develop relationships with new artists, provide opportunities for artists to exhibit their work for the first time in one of our cultural centers or for the first time ever, and give artists who have previously exhibited at one cultural center an opportunity to show their work at a different center.

ART214  gives the citizens of Dallas an opportunity to discover and enjoy the work of talented local and regional visual artists.  Each of the partnering cultural centers brings its own audiences, artists, communities, and history.  By scheduling connected dates to display a different section of the show at each center, the ART214 exhibition creates a unique opportunity for the public to visit all the centers during Dallas Arts Month, and it also promotes collaboration and cross-pollination of artists and audiences.


ARTHELLO BECK AND EMERGING ARTISTS GALLERY

The South Dallas Cultural Center’s two visual art galleries feature innovative and thought-provoking exhibitions that address a range of social and cultural themes. Our exhibition program presents influential local, regional, and national artists such as Phoenix Savage, Pucci Lisenbee, and Ciare Elle Bryant.

South Dallas Cultural Center’s visual art galleries was named in honor of artist and long-time SDCC supporter, Arthello Beck. A South Dallas native, Beck dedicated his life to the arts and supporting African American culture. He traveled extensively, showcasing his works in cultural institutions across the world. By the 1970’s, Beck and his wife, Mae, established the Arthello Beck Gallery in Oak Cliff, Dallas, Texas. Arthello Beck passed away in 2004 and our galleries became his namesake in 2007. The South Dallas Cultural Center is proud to pay tribute to Beck’s unyielding creativity and his profound affection for the culture and lives of Black people.
