Opening Reception: July 9, 6-9PM
Umbrella Gallery
LOCATION: 2803 Taylor St, Dallas, TX, 75226


Umbrella is an art gallery that exists within the cultural center of Life in Deep Ellum, an organization built on the idea that vibrant community exists where individuality is celebrated, and all are welcome. It is a space for exploration, a place to stretch and to grow for both established and emerging artists. Due to its non-commercial status, Umbrella opens the door for artists to try something new, to push their artistic limits, and to exhibit this experimental spirit freely. Its unique functionality, size, and shape offer an opportunity to produce bodies of work that both stand out from and harmonize with the gallery space itself.
