The Storied Fort Worth Gallery Begins a New Chapter

FORT WORTH, TEXAS – Fort Worth’s renowned and enduring art gallery, William Campbell Contemporary Art, transitioned to new ownership in December of 2020. Pam and Bill Campbell, who have owned and operated the gallery and frame shop on Byers Avenue for forty-six years, transferred their legacy as purveyors and stewards of contemporary art to new hands.
Fort Worth Contemporary Art Partners has purchased William Campbell Contemporary Art and Gallery One Frames. FWCAP founders are Jadz Pate, Clayton Snodgrass, Tim Locke, J.W. Wilson, and Peeler Howell. Howell has worked as the Campbells’ gallery assistant since August 2017, and will continue to manage day-to-day operations.
“Fort Worth Contemporary Art Partners has no desire to do anything fundamentally different from what Bill and Pam have created over the last forty-six years,” said Howell. “We want to continue to cultivate the relationships they have created with the artists, clients, and customers, and anybody that has an interest in contemporary art, or art in general. Bill and Pam have been ideal mentors, and will continue to be so.”
As much fixtures in the Metroplex art scene as their brick-and-mortar space, Pam and Bill Campbell have made an indelible imprint on the Fort Worth art community, championing contemporary artists and making their work accessible to a broad audience base.
“Though we are going to really miss seeing our clients on a regular basis-many who have become such great friends over the years-and working with our artists who are like family to us, we couldn’t have wished for a better scenario,” said the Campbells. “We are excited to see William Campbell Contemporary Art continue beyond our retirement and look forward to the gallery’s future in Peeler and his partners’ extraordinary and talented hands.”
As the gallery changes hands, patrons will notice very little difference aside from a fresh set of legs. The Campbell name will remain as homage to its founders, as will the location and stable of artists. “We will carry the Campbell torch forward into the future while always honoring its past,” Wilson said.
The new owners believe in the mission set forth by the Campbells more than four decades ago, and remain dedicated to upholding the values that have made William Campbell Contemporary Art a Fort Worth institution. “We are committed to exhibiting the same quality of art and service that Fort Worth has grown accustomed to,” they said.
