Current Exhibition :
13th Annual Joyce Elaine Grant Photography Exhibition 2014
Established in 2001 and organized by the graduate photography students at Texas Woman’s University and the Photographic Artist’s Coalition (a student-run photography organization), the annual Joyce Elaine Grant Photography Exhibition provides a national venue for the exhibition of artistic expression as seen through the eye of the camera. Photographers from throughout the United States are invited to submit entries for the exhibition. The exhibition and endowment was established by Christine Shank and a small group of graduate students and named in memory of the mother of Professor Susan Kae Grant. Exhibition proceeds fund the Joyce Elaine Grant Photography Exhibition Endowment, which supports photography scholarships for future graduate students in the Department of Visual Arts.

The East | West Galleries at Texas Woman’s University are dedicated to understanding and promoting contemporary art as a tool and a catalyst for education.

By inviting established and emerging contemporary artists, designers, critics and curators of national and international stature from off-campus as well as within, and setting them in direct dialogue with students and local audiences, the East | West Galleries establish immediate relevancy in the University and community.
The East | West Galleries visionnbsp;is well-aligned with Texas Woman’s University’s commitment to “educate and empower our students, especially ensuring opportunities for women and minorities, to become leaders in our society through excellence in the visual arts.”
