Betty Moody opened Moody Gallery in 1975 and exhibits work by contemporary American artists. The emphasis has always been on artists living and working in Texas, as well as artists who have had a strong connection to Texas. The gallery is interested in a wide range of artistic ideas and in showing all media. Many of the artists represented are recognized on a national (and in some cases, international) level; however, the gallery also represents mid-career and emerging artists. The gallery is committed to showing the best work possible from this region and putting the work in context with by established artists from other parts of the country.
