Austin Street Gallery Closes

Austin Street Gallery closed its doors in May of 2014. Opened in 2007 by Shirley and Clint Blackman, the gallery hosted fine artists from all over the state of Texas and beyond, as well as serving as Shirley's full-time studio. Shirley Blackman was named a Rockport Art Festival Poster Artist in 2010. We will miss the wonderful art and atmosphere of Austin Street Gallery!

A message from Shirley and Clint:

"Austin Street Gallery will be closing its doors on May 5, 2014. We have had a memorable 9 years working with exceptional artists and enjoying the wonderful people who have walked through our door. It's been a joy.

We have sincerely appreciated your coming to our gallery in the past and hope that you will continue to help support the art community of Rockport."
