El Centro Art Gallery

The Art Gallery opened in 2004 to feature fine art by students, faculty, and local and national artists. In 2006 a group was formed to establish the H. Paxton Moore Memorial Art Fund. Mr. Moore was a graduate of TCU (Texas Christian University) and was one of the first English instructors at El Centro when the campus opened in 1966. He formed the first visual arts committee to start purchasing works of art by students and professional artists to be displayed around the campus. His support continued even after his retirement. His dedication led to his colleagues, family, and friends establishing a fund to continue support for the Art Gallery, and on April 28, 2007, the gallery was formally changed to the H. Paxton Moore Fine Art Gallery.

The professional exhibitions feature regional, national, and international artists. We also feature an annual art faculty and staff exhibition and, an annual Juried Art Student Exhibition.
