The Malouf Abraham Family Art Center

Designed to increase cultural awareness and artistic heritage, the gallery was made possible thanks to the generosity of Dr. Malouf and Therese Abraham. 

An avid art collector and patron, Dr. Abraham designed the gallery space in collaboration with the Frank Lloyd Wright Institute. The result is one of the finest and most elegant galleries in the Southwest.

Students at Wayland and local community members take advantage of the wonderful opportunities the gallery provides. Season exhibits include a variety of shows featuring a full range of medias such as sculpture, metalwork, and acrylic and oil paintings, techniques and concepts. Exhibits feature works of both established professional and emerging regional artists, as well as showcases of nationally renowned collections.
