atxGALS broke into the pop-up art party scene in 2017 with the mission of bringing more exposure and recognition to women in art through unique, nontraditional art exhibits, all while giving back to organizations that align with women’s issues and equality. Wanting to expand the opportunities for their artists and continue giving back to the local community is what then led to the birth of The Cathedral, a 1930s refurbished church in East Austin that serves as a boutique co-working space, event venue and art gallery.
