We are delighted that you are interested in joining our gallery. We are the second oldest gallery in Wimberley and have been in operation for 15+ years. We have approximately 14 members. It takes a group effort to maintain and run the gallery. Be prepared to actively participate in operations, such as cleaning, coordinating events, gallery supplies, etc.
