Art News DFW: Honor Thy Artist

The purpose of Art News DFW is to foster creativity through visual art nonprofit organizations that support working artists. AND, directly support local artists. We do this by offering free publicity on this, and other affiliated sites and networks.

Since 2006, we’ve posted over 6,000 announcements from local artists (and art organizations) to promote exhibits, workshops, meetings, calls for artists, and other art events.

We will soon have an article on each artist.
