A site to see.

Webb Gallery was born in Waxahachie, Texas in 1987. 

What started as a passion/obsession for old handmade items such as painted or repaired objects, fraternal lodge items, carnival banners, tramp art, memory jugs, quilts, and just killer oddball stuff became a continuous quest for the unusual. The Webbs have been crisscrossing Texas, the South, the Midwest, and just about any hole in the wall across the country in search of the miraculous for more than a decade.

In 1989, the Webbs began the inevitable evolution of searching for self-taught artists to collect their creations and document their stories. In addition to obsessive collecting, Bruce & Julie lecture and curate exhibits in schools, universities, and museums across the country. The focus at the gallery is ever evolving while continuing with the goal to show "what we love".

Webb Gallery houses a huge collection of self taught art, really great art, old fraternal lodge objects, carnival banners, vintage anonymous art, and just plain kick ass stuff. Webb Gallery often hosts events, including films, musical performances, speakers, reveling parties and socials. 

Webb Gallery is housed in a 10,000 square foot cast-iron-front building 30 miles south of Dallas on I-35. Open Saturdays and Sundays 1 - 5pm. and by appointment.

The Mysterious

We are always in search for the items which represent the symbols of mystery. Old theatrical items, books, items of spiritualism, and pieces of  culture such as fraternal artwork. 

The Unusual

We have always loved and collected the unusual in vintage carnival banners, photos, tramp art, signs, costumes, and the ever present pieces which are marked with that "what in the world" appeal.

The Striking

We have an unending affinity for the handmade and the impactful.  Nothing better than  an oddball yet beautiful painting or some old piece created out of obsessiveness and inventiveness but with little reason.

We host 4 rotating exhibits per year here at Webb Gallery. In addition to exhibits, we have a huge inventory of artwork from a selection of artists whom we love and collect.  With a lean towards the rougher, naive or direct, we have a diverse gathering of artists' work that follows in with our sensibilities.

Our Webb site is only a small example of what we do, what you will see upon a visit to Waxahachie, and just a slice of our available inventory.

Art to us can be found in pieces or items, places, or people.  You are surely to find all examples here at Webb Gallery.
