About the Arthello Beck and Emerging Artists Gallery:

Our 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,Β Pucci Lisenbee,Β andΒ Ciare Elle Bryant.

Our visual art galleries were 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. We are proud to pay tribute to Beck’s unyielding creativity and his profound affection for the culture and lives of Black people.
