Our mission is to provide a vibrant center in downtown Hallettsville for people to explore and enjoy an art, performance, and learning center.  As a non-profit foundation, we’re divided into two parts: the Hallet Oak Gallery and Friends of Hallettsville Downtown Revitalization.

Located in the historic Kahn & Stanzel Building, the Hallet Oak Gallery exhibits artworks from more than 20 regional and international artists. The gallery regularly provides meet-and-greets with the artists and offers educational workshops, classes, evening lectures, musical events, and movies pertaining to the arts.

The Friends of Hallettsville Downtown Revitalization organization is dedicated to preserving the history of the town through guided tours, cultural activities, and fund-raising community events.


To offer the people of Hallettsville and surrounding Lavaca County a lively new home to experience, explore, and enjoy cultural arts. The long-term result of this effort will be to deepen the community’s appreciation for art and culture.
