University Galleries


The University Galleries at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi include the Weil Gallery and Islander Art Gallery. The Weil Gallery is located on campus in the Center for Arts on the first floor while the Islander Art Gallery is an off-campus facility located at the intersection of Staples and Weber Roads. They are traditional gallery spaces used for the exhibition of work by TAMU-CC graduate and undergraduate students, faculty, and visiting artists from the local, national, and international contexts. Exhibitions held at these venues serve the immediate TAMU-CC campus as well as the greater Corpus Christi community and beyond. 

These spaces also provide an important pedagogical component of the fine arts curriculum at TAMU-CC. Qualifying MFA candidates are offered opportunities for part-time employment with the University Galleries as part of their degree program and gain valuable experience as Graduate Gallery Assistants. Duties include, but are not limited to, exhibition installations, supervision of undergraduate staff, and overseeing of general gallery maintenance. This provides TAMU-CC MFA candidates with valuable professional experience in the field of gallery practice and museum standards. 

The galleries are supported by University Facilities, are outfitted with current equipment and hardware, and are staffed by TAMU-CC faculty and students. The University Galleries thanks the Friends of the University Galleries, the Arts and Cultural Commission of the City of Corpus Christi, and The Cotillion Club of Corpus Christi for their continued support.
