Volitant Gallery

As a groundbreaking and adventurous contemporary art gallery, Volitant Gallery opened its doors in Austin on April 15th, 2006 at 320 Congress Avenue (southwest corner of 4th & Congress). Housed in the historic 5,000 square-foot space of the Koppel Building, its ambitious mission to share both regional and international contemporary art with Austin continues with each exhibit. In addition to the gallery's work with internationally-known artists, such as Marcos Lopez, Nicola Costantino and Stanikas, Volitant seeks to nurture and celebrate Austin's local art scene, helping regional artists expand their recognition and contributing to the richness of the vital national art scene.
