Daum Gallery was founded by Taylor Daum, a local Dallas artist who seeks to create an approachable & welcoming gallery experience.
Taylor's mission is to bring the community together with an eclectic event schedule, and to create a gorgeous setting to display and sell works created by local Dallas artists.
MISSION & VISION
"We need to breathe new life into the white-wall gallery model and create a space that celebrates artists and invites guests to come and view amazing art, linger a little longer, and have a little fun.”
- Taylor Daum
To facilitate this vision, Daum Gallery will boast unique features like a free coffee bar, and artistic book nook, a community table where people can work and gather, and open studio spaces where guests can peak behind the curtain to see artists at work. Daum Gallery will be holding bi-monthly eclectic events that range from art shows to educational seminars, to mini-concerts.
“I want to help make the Dallas Design District the new hot-spot in town. My mission is rooted in passion for the arts & I want Daum Gallery to help bring the entire community together. I hope to eventually partner with neighboring galleries, retailers & restaurants to pioneer a First Friday movement, where we all open our doors & bring in food trucks, live bands & invite the masses to come out & celebrate life & community.”
MEET TAYLOR DAUM
Taylor Daum is an award-winning Dallas-based artist with a passion for creating beautiful artworks and experiences. She received her BA in Art History from The University of Kansas in 2009 and went on to establish a flourishing marketing career in Denver, CO.
During her career in marketing, Taylor never stopped painting, and continued to show her work throughout Denver. When the pandemic hit, she was furloughed and took that opportunity to lean into her art. Quickly, the income from her art sales outpaced the income she had been earning at her corporate job, so when she was asked to return to work, she declined the offer, dove into art, and has never looked back!
Taylor moved back to Dallas in 2021 and since then, her art career has accelerated to new heights. In 2022, 15 of her paintings were published in Under The Gum Tree and she was named a Rising Star by Dallas Voyager. Taylor won the 2022 Introspective Art Competition and was offered gallery representation by several Dallas-based galleries. Taylor produced, promoted, and exhibited at pop-up shows including Dallas Artists Unite and Yam Glam, and participated in art fairs including Cedars Open Studios and the November Saatchi Other Art Fair. Her artwork remains on display throughout town at upscale apartment complexes and office buildings. Taylor’s passion can be seen in her artwork and attention to detail. Her latest works will be available to the public at Daum Gallery in April.
