The Art League of Baytown will host its 2nd exhibition in conjunction with FotoFest 2018 Biennial.  Established in 1954 and incorporated as a 501(c)3 in 1963, we will celebrate our tenth year in our stand-alone gallery and art education facility in conjunction with FotoFest 2018. There will be three other FotoFest Participating Spaces in Baytown: Sterling Municipal Library, Lee College Gallery and Lee College Library. Their exhibitions also will follow the global theme of “meditation.”


FotoFest is an international non-profit photographic arts and education organization based in Houston, Texas.  Its first international Biennial of Photography and Photo-related Art in the United States was created in 1986. Their programs work locally and globally to promote the cross-cultural exchange of art and ideas.
