The Arts Council Gallery

The Arts Council Gallery located in the Dinah Washington Cultural Arts Center is one of three galleries managed by The Arts Council. Meeting the demand for additional exhibit space in Tuscaloosa, the gallery hosts a variety of exhibits by artists from around Alabama and the Southeast as well as artists from our own community. Exhibits in The Arts Council Gallery and the Junior League and Greensboro Room Galleries located in the Bama Theatre, are displayed on a rotating basis and are usually booked several months in advance.

Exhibit openings at both The Arts Council and The University of Alabama Galleries in the Dinah Washington Cultural Arts Center take place on First Fridays from 5-8 pm and are free and open to the public.
