Founded in 1990 with an emphasis on artists living in Houston and the region, Inman Gallery has since cultivated an internationally recognized program that represents contemporary artists from the region, nationally, and abroad. The gallery takes an active approach in supporting artists from the early stages of their careers into national and international recognition; the gallery is equally active in its local community. Education, community engagement, and a long-term commitment to artists form the core of the gallery’s mission.

Artists represented by Inman Gallery have participated in exhibitions at major institutions including the Whitney Museum of American Art, The Centre Pompidou, The Walker Art Center, The Venice Biennale, The New Museum, NY, The Menil Collection, and others. Major acquisitions of work by gallery artists have been made by institutions including The Menil Collection, The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, The Baltimore Museum of Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Recently, gallery artists have participated in high profile exhibitions such as Explode Every Day: An Inquiry into the Phenomena of Wonder, (MASS MoCA), Southern Accent (Nasher Museum), and Freedom Principle (MCA, Chicago). In 2016 the gallery began representing the estate of Texas modernist Dorothy Antoinette LaSelle, and in March presented her paintings in New York at the ADAA’s Art Show. In addition to the ADAA fair, the gallery will mount a solo booth for Jamal Cyrus at the 2017 edition of Miami/Basel.

Inman Gallery has been a member of the ADAA since 2009.
