Heart Gallery of North Texas

About Us

Heart Gallery of North Texas is dedicated to helping children find loving, nurturing, forever homes. Professional photographers have volunteered to capture the spirit of children who are legally available for adoption through the art of photography.

This exhibit is designed to enlighten, inspire, and generate awareness of these special children who desire nothing more in life than to find a loving home.

Special Thanks to Child Protective Services, Heart Gallery of North Central Texas and the featured children and photographers for opening their hearts and vision for this worthwhile project.

History of the Heart Gallery

The Heart Gallery originated in 2001 in Santa Fe., NM to provide a unique way to raise community awareness of the need for adoptive homes for children in foster care.  The Heart Gallery has been extremely successful as photographers, churches, gallery owners and volunteer’s work together, donating their time and talents, to help open hearts and minds to the needs of these wonderful children.  

The Heart Gallery has received national attention in Parade Magazine, People Magazine, the New York Times, and by ABC’s Peter Jennings who recognized the Heart Gallery photographers as the “Persons of the Week.”  In 2005 a variety of events and venues marked the beginning of the Heart Gallery of North Texas.  It was a collaborative effort between Lena Pope Home, CASA, The Department of Family and Protective Services and Gerald Peters Gallery. Since that time, the Heart Gallery has continued to expand and now travels to events and churches throughout North Texas.
