Congratulations to J.R. Roykovich on their exhibition Travel in Light Years on display in the GAR Gallery August 27th – November 12th, 2022.
Part of the exhibition included public programming – an evening of Galveston Ghost stories.
Thank you to everyone who came out to share a spooky story around the fire! Here is GP retelling the terrifying tale of the haunted research ship!
On October 20th GAR was happy to host the Ascend Art Market in our front courtyard.
It was a fun night, with music and food! Here is Raudiver (Galveston, TX) playing an experimental set in the back courtyard.
The Galveston festival season kicked off with Oktoberfest. Pictured here is a giant stine, Glasstire writer William Sarradet, and GAR’s new artists in residence, Lili Chin and Samira Yamin. Proust!
We survived yet another Lone Star Biker Rally. Pictured here: possibly the prettiest bike at Biker Rally…?
Rounding off the winter festivities with Dickens on the Strand, here is artist in residence, Lili Chin, posing with the AMAZING Edgar Allen Poe who’s performances are not to be missed!
A big thank you to Eric Heist and Benjamin Tischer for coming to Galveston in November to introduce our current exhibition, Candy Factory by Eric Heist and BREYER P-ORRIDGE.

And now! It’s time for…. CREATURE FEATURE!

Not to be outshone, Our third resident kitty, Pumaman: Cat of Legend.
If you walk the winter beach, you may find a fossil crab! A good authority tells us it’s at least several million years old.
Last, but not least, on January 22nd, 2023, we were lucky enough to have Karima Walker (Tucson, AZ) and Little Mazarn (Austin, TX) perform in our back courtyard.
It was a beautiful, magical night of music.
