was born in Waxahachie, Texas in 1987.
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 countryt 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 obcessive
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
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.
