ABOUT GALVESTON HISTORICAL FOUNDATION AND THE EVENT

Galveston Historical Foundation (GHF) was formed as the Galveston Historical Society in 1871 and merged with a new organization formed in 1954 as a non-profit entity devoted to historic preservation and history in Galveston County. Over the last sixty years, GHF has expanded its mission to encompass community redevelopment, historic preservation advocacy, maritime preservation, coastal resiliency and stewardship of historic properties. GHF embraces a broader vision of history and architecture that encompasses advancements in environmental and natural sciences and their intersection with historic buildings and coastal life, and conceives of history as an engaging story of individual lives and experiences on Galveston Island from the 19th century to the present day.


PASW Juried Competition artists listed above will have the opportunity to interpret this historic city as only plein air painters can.  Our event takes place during the 50th annual Galveston Historic Home Tour that attracts thousands of visitors to the city.  For 7 days, artists will have access to paint on the grounds of the homes on tour as well as special permission to other private locations including the 1877 Tall Ship ELISSA. The Exhibition will be in the Ballroom of the historic 1880 Garten Verein event venue.  Competition artists donate a percentage from their sales during the exhibition to the Galveston Historical Foundation.
