In late January, the Australian government's national program, G'Day USA!, and the Australian-American Chamber of Commerce of Texas' "Australia Week Houston," will feature a variety of business and cultural events. The gallery is headlining two events, a major exhibition at Williams Tower Gallery and a new exhibition at Booker-Lowe. We hope you'll join us for both!
