Gallery XII, at 412 E. Douglas, is Wichita’s first cooperative gallery, started by 12 artists in September of 1977. As a not-for-profit, their major objective is to provide an opportunity for its members to exhibit and sell their work to the public, provide a supportive environment for creative stimulation and to promote the visual arts in the city of Wichita and the state of Kansas.
This Fine Arts Gallery, exhibits original art in a wide range of media: paintings, printmaking, photography, drawings, pastels, fiber art, watercolors, sculpture, ceramics, jewelry, glassworks, as well as a diverse range of artistic styles (realism, abstract, impressionism, figurative, landscape, traditional, and contemporary).
The artists of Gallery XII are required to perform a variety of duties within the gallery; including staffing during its open hours, serving on committees and as officers. Members have also committed themselves to actively participate in many local and state art events, including the Final Friday Gallery Walk, donating time and artworks to charity organizations such as Art Aid, YWCA Women Crisis Center, and supporting other local arts organizations such as The Wichita Center for the Arts, City Arts, the Wichita Art Museum, and the Ulrich Museum.
