Art Palace was founded in 2005 in Austin with a focus on promoting emerging talent in Texas. Art Palace works closely with a roster of artists to facilitate their development through exhibitions, art fairs, publications, special projects and placement in both private and public collections. In doing so, Art Palace and its artists have attracted regional and national attention from Art in America, Art News, New York Times, Art Papers, Art Lies, Artnet.com and Artforum.com.

In an effort to better serve its artists and growing audience, Art Palace relocated operations to Houston, Texas in January 2010 and maintains seasonal programming in and around Austin.
