A little history...
REAL GALLERY opened June 2008 at 2824 Real St. Austin, TX. Owner, Kathi Herrin, operated her fine art venue at this location in East Austin June thru Nov 2008. The mission of Real Gallery is to promote local artists in beautiful venues where they can exhibit their work in solo/group shows. That mission paid off in 2008 for many of the artists that graced the doors of Real Gallery. Herrin leased a second location in East Austin Sept 2011-March 2012 at 1101 Navasota #3 Austin, TX 78702 and stepped up to juried fine art exhibitions. Herrin is extremely grateful to all the artists and guests that have participated in the success of Real Gallery.http://www.myspace.com/realgalleryaustin
