Citizens Medical Center Artist Exhibition

Artists are featured each month in the lobby area of Citizens Medical Center, in front of the gift shop. Art pieces stay on display for visitors to view and admire as they are visiting patience of the hospital. If you would like to be a guest artist on display at Citizens Medical Center please contact us.

Victoria Regional Airport

As a partnership with the Victoria Regional Airport, artists from the Victoria Art League will have art exhibits on display for travelers to view as they are either arriving or departing the airport. If you would like to have your art work on display, please contact Bill Bauer at 361-649-8309 or whbauer5491@gmail.com.

Devereux Foundation

The Devereux Foundation is a nonprofit behavioral health organization that operates programs and services in 11 U.S. states, working with children and adults with developmental disabilities, emotional and behavioral disorders, and mental illnesses. On the outskirts of Victoria is a Devereux campus that service young children suffering from mental illness. Because these kids live and go to school at this campus, they have little interaction with the outside world. My sister and I have committed to providing monthly visits to interact with the children and provide art projects in small groups. If you are interested in volunteering or providing art projects, contact James Clifton at 361-574-7225.

Mardi Draw Fundraiser

In the philanthropic spirit of Mardi Gras tradition, we would like to invite you to a reception honoring donors, art enthusiasts and the artist themselves for an evening of revelry and giving.

Mardi Draw, Victoria Art League’s first annual fundraising event to benefit the Healing Arts Scholarships for children and adults suffering from severe illnesses.

Join us for a night of jazz music, gumbo cuisine and a chance to “flash your art” for special beads if you purchase artwork that evening.

Come be a part of the Healing Art Krewe!
