atxGALS is the largest collective of emerging women and nonbinary artists in Austin. Our mission is to give local women and nonbinary artists more recognition in the art world by creating more exposure for them through unique, pop-up shows and curation opportunities. Our goal is to contribute to each artist's success while also giving back to community by supporting local organizations that have a primary focus on human rights and equality. Artists keep 100% of their art sales from atxGALS events, and a significant portion of the event proceeds supports the organization/s involved.
Since being founded by Mexico-native, Mónica Ceniceros, in 2017, our collective has grown from 14 artists to now 25 artists–and growing–and has raised over $50k for GEN (Girls Empowerment Network), and other local Organizations.
atxGALS art exhibits are accessible, fun, and are an open invitation to genuinely connect with talented artists that are passionate about their work and sharing their artistic process.
