Froelick Gallery

Located in the historic DeSoto building which has many galleries and venues for art, the Froelick Gallery displays bold and individualistic artwork by contemporary artists. Although many local artists are represented at the exhibitions, displays of the works of artists from as far away as Tokyo can also be found here. The gallery organizes more than 15 solo exhibitions and around 4 group exhibitions during the course of a year. Exhibitions include artwork of varying mediums and styles, thereby ensuring that no two exhibitions are the same. Established in 1995, the gallery is one of the most respected institutions to display art in the city.
