In the last decade I have visited almost every significant contemporary art gallery in the major cities in Texas in every corner of the state. K Space Contemporary is a national class venue showing the best national and state contemporary cutting edge new works by well known artists as well as very accomplished talented South Texas artists. In addition to remarkable exhibitions KSC hosts some of the most fun affordable gala events in the arts anywhere! Be sure to see their Wigout08 gala photos on their website www.kspacecontemporary.org AND their event hors d'oeuvres and wines are perfectly paired, always sponsored and very classy. If you want to sponsor a really nice event in the arts contact K Space! Membership in KSC is a big bargin considering there are no cash bars and events are free to members! What is that? Nuff said.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Members, artists, sponsors and downtown neighbors are all very friendly and open to supporting events with personal and monetary resources. Easy place to make great friends.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

No drama, just good friends and joyful to be around.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Actually one million would do it to acquire additional alternative gallery spaces for more venues and a collecting vault. KSC needs artists and collectors as patrons. Ask.

Ways to make it better...

This is an exceptional gallery run by passion; nothing could be better. If you love the arts, cutting edge creativity, get involved as an artist, member or patron. It is very important and will change your view of the arts in this area. There is nothing even close to what is happening at KSC.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

... getting YOU involved! You cannot have any more fun or see any better NEW art in this area anywhere else. Be here! Come see and talk to the director.

One thing I'd also say is that...

If you want to make life long exciting life long creative friendships get over to KSC right away. Seriously! I am SO impressed and I did not just fall off the art-mellon truck.

Should this review be counted for a specific campaign?

This gallery is the most unique contemporary art gallery in South Texas. It highlights local and regional artists but also brings in artists from around the United States who otherwise would not have a venue in this area. K-Space also serves the community in concrete ways by sponsoring educational talks and workshops which are free to the public.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

public awareness of the importance of art in our lives

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

go crazy due to the commitment of time and energy required

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

meeting the wonderful people who are responsible for running the gallery

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

friendly and knowledgable

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

serve the South Texas community in truly amazing ways, offering hands on workshops and bringing in international artists

Ways to make it better...

the organization had more grants to fund other special community events

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

funding

One thing I'd also say is that...

CONGRATULATIONS to the folks responsible for this awesome gallery

K Space Contemporary is THE most well run organization I have been a part of. They operate with very little funding and they do a fantastic job! The level of passion for the community and contemporary art is amazing. THANK YOU K SPACE.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the downtown community and local contemporary artists. The art opening crowds are great!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Buy and move into "certain" historical building downtown and have a real storage area. Also, have paid employees! :) And most importantly give back to Corpus Christi with free workshops!
