About the James Watrous Gallery

The James Watrous Gallery is a place to explore and learn about contemporary art in Wisconsin. Located on the third floor of Overture Center for the Arts in downtown Madison, the Watrous Gallery shows art from around the state and investigates ideas at the intersection of the sciences, arts, and letters. 

Paired solo shows are the gallery's most consistent format, although we present curated exhibitions as well. Solo exhibits present a significant body of artwork by a single artist, while our curated shows often reflect the Wisconsin Academy's special interest in drawing connections between art and other disciplines. Many of our exhibits and related events 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.

OUR NEXT CALL FOR ARTISTS WILL BE POSTED HERE BY LATE 2021.

The James Watrous Gallery's exhibition calendar is filled for the next several years. Because the COVID-19 pandemic has forced us to reschedule most of our 2020 exhibitions, our next call for artists will not be open until late 2021. If you have questions about eligibility for the call, please contact gallery director Jody Clowes. Thank you for your interest!
