Located in a 1916 warehouse for more than 20 years, 500X Gallery has pulsed with the energy and excitement of the local contemporary art scene.

Valley House Gallery, with its sculpture garden that spans 5 acres (20,234 square meters), is located in North Dallas far from the usual art district traffic. Bought by artist Donald Vogel and his wife, Margaret, in 1954, this beautiful area still evokes a feeling of solitude. Their son, Kevin, currently owns and operates the gallery. The exhibit hall is always full and often must enlist the aid of the Dallas police to coordinate parking for events and showings. Valley House was the first gallery in the Southwest to be invited to join the Art Dealers Association of America. Admission is free.
