Gallery Programs

The Bath House Cultural Center’s galleries showcase artists from Dallas and all over the world. From solo exhibitions to popular annual group shows, including “El Corazón,” “ART214,” and “El Día de los Muertos (The Day of the Dead),” the Bath House is a vital resource for the visual arts community in Dallas. Gallery talks, artist lectures, workshops, demonstrations, and art sales, create an environment where both artist and viewer can be creative.

Muralism Program

The Bath House Cultural Center’s Muralism Program was created in 2016 with the goal of fostering the growth of local visual artists who are interested in learning traditional and modern techniques of the art of mural-size painting.  In addition to the benefits gained by the participating students, the Muralism Program, under the instruction of artist Genaro Hernandez, also provides opportunities for community involvement, educational development, and enhancement and beautification of the center.  The Muralism Program takes place in the building’s lake-level studio.   Students meet on Saturday afternoons and the public is encouraged to see the artists at work during their painting sessions.

The Bath House Cultural Center is a member of the Dallas Art Dealers Association.
