“We are thrilled to be welcoming artwork from our IMAS members this year after an incredible response in 2021 for our first show. We had over 72 member artists submit over 100 artworks for the inaugural show and saw an array of talent, styles, and mediums in the exhibition,” said Amelia Whitehead, Director of Collections & Exhibitions. “This year promises to be another strong show with great interest from our membership and the community.”
Members’ Juried Art Show is made possible by Texas Commission on the Arts (TCA). The mission of the Texas Commission on the Arts is to advance our state economically and culturally by investing in a creative Texas.
