About the James Watrous Gallery

The James Watrous Gallery is dedicated to celebrating Wisconsin artists. Located on the third floor of Overture Center for the Arts in downtown Madison, the Watrous focuses on solo exhibits by contemporary Wisconsin artists and curated shows that reflect the Wisconsin Academy's interest in drawing connections between art and other disciplines. Exhibitions and events often connect with themes explored through Wisconsin Academy Talks and Initiatives, as well as in the pages of Wisconsin People & Ideas

The James Watrous Gallery receives ongoing support from the Great Performance Fund at the Madison Community Foundation and the membership of the Wisconsin Academy of Sciences, Arts & Letters. Programming is supported in part by a grant from the Wisconsin Arts Board, with funds from the State of Wisconsin and the National Endowment for the Arts.


Most of the gallery's exhibitions are curated through an open call for artists. Because exhibitions originally planned for 2020 and 2021 were postponed and rescheduled, the next call will not be open for some time. If you have questions about eligibility for the call, please contact gallery director Jody Clowes. Thank you for your interest!
