Located in the evolving West Dallas area, near the Tin District, Trinity Groves and the Belmont Hotel, with a second location inside of The Joule Hotel, Dallas. The galleries focus on optimum visibility, inclusion and acquisitions for marginalized artists. The Joule Hotel now has the first Black-woman-owned contemporary art gallery in Downtown Dallas, furthering opportunities for visitors to engage with a full roster of extraordinary artists.

Board has curated, juried and collaborated on exhibitions and projects in traditional and non-traditional art spaces throughout Dallas, including The Arlington Art Fair, The Other Art Fair, African American Museum of Dallas, Dallas Contemporary, 500X Gallery and City of Dallas Office of Arts and Culture.
