Founded in 1969, Hooks-Epstein Galleries, Inc., is one of the Houston’s longest running art galleries. Representing established, mid-career and emerging artists, the gallery pioneered the museum area while remaining in the forefront as specialists in late 19th, 20th and 21st century representational American, European, and Latin works of art. Along with a particular emphasis on sculpture and works on paper, the gallery is also Houston’s premier resource for works in the secondary market. Many of Houston’s most prominent art collections include works acquired through Hooks-Epstein Galleries. 
Celebrating its 50th year of existence, the gallery has mounted many exhibitions which received national and international acclaim. The gallery has published catalogues which continue to be used as a source of information and has produced exhibitions which have traveled from the gallery to museums and other venues. 

Nuestra Realidad – Our Reality will continue through May 11, 2019.

Gallery hours are Tuesdays through Saturdays from 11:00AM to 5:00PM and by appointment.
