galleryHOMELAND is a Houston, TX based non-profit arts organization advancing awareness of our rich cultural community that surrounds us by creating new opportunities and lasting cultural exchange in a unique series of programs focused on exporting local arts and artists and importing national and international art and artists.

Founded in 2005 by artists Paul Middendorf and Page Saez, galleryHOMELAND fosters cutting edge and challenging concepts in contemporary art. Focusing primarily on emerging and mid-career visual artists, the gallery’s programming includes a monthly exhibition schedule, an artist residence, and an international programming series involving opening temporary gallery spaces in leading contemporary art communities.

At the end of 2007, galleryHOMELAND opened a large new exhibition space at the Ford Building in the SE on Division Street and 11th Avenue. Artists and groups based both in and outside the region use several thousand square feet of active project space for the creation and exhibition of innovative works. As part of the Central Eastside Arts District, the gallery is connected to a thriving art community that has formed between the industrial corridor and residential districts of the SE. Newly renovated, the Ford Building is currently home to over 50 creative professional artists, companies, and organizations.

In September of 2009 galleryHOMELAND, in collaboration with Dam, Stuhltrager Gallery, opened the EAST/WEST Project for the first time in Berlin, Germany.

EAST/WEST Project was a nonprofit initiative that encouraged cultural exchange by establishing a short term project space abroad for international artists to share, develop and progress contemporary ideas.

Now galleryHOMELAND has expanded its reach and vision and has created a new project in Houston, TX. With our new location we our expanding out reach and continue to represent and exhibit under represented artists ideas and concepts. We continue to focus on our artists and communities by creating a strong cultural exchange within Houston, and Beyond.
