About the Dallas Arts District Foundation:

To complement the mission of the Dallas Arts District and to continue to support the programs of resident art organizations in the District, the Foundation sponsors a broad range of activities with particular emphasis on emerging artists and cultural groups from outside the Dallas Arts District.

Financial assistance is granted to a non-profit organization or to an individual sponsored by a non-profit organization who want to provide a specific artistic or cultural activity to occur within the Dallas Arts District that also benefits the public. The Foundation’s high priority is funding projects that are site-specific, innovative programs, that are developed through a collaborative process among different cultural organizations.

JUROR: E. Melinda Morrison

As a young woman, her B.A. in Fine Arts from the University of Texas at Tyler took a backseat to the corporate world for many years: advertising exec; graphic designer and art director of her own company; and later corporate and executive recruiter for national technology and digital marketing advertising companies.  Not surprisingly, she was recognized in national competitions for her print design and annual reports while living in Dallas but shortly after her move to Denver in 1994, the satisfied extrovert began to hear from the starving artist.  She says she “felt like her soul was drying up.”  An oil-painting class at the Art Students’ League of Denver rained water on that desert ground.

Over the next five years, Melinda studied painting at the Denver Arts League under the guidance of nationally known and accomplished masters such as Quang Ho, Kim English, Kevin Wechbach and Ron Hicks.  As her passion and skill grew, so did her dream to paint full-time.  She made the leap in 2003 and brought years of corporate skills into the new and intricate dance of a full-time professional art career.  She hasn’t looked back.  Since that decision, Melinda has had multiple one-woman shows in Santa Fe, New Mexico and participated in national and regional shows, and plein air events in the Southwest and Southeast gaining recognition for her figurative paintings.  She is a gifted teacher of workshops and is collected among collectors all across the US.

Recently, Melinda made a move from Colorado back to her home roots in Texas .  Choosing Fort Worth to be near family, Melinda opened her studio in her new home where she continues to paint and teach.

Melinda has been the featured artist in national and regional magazines and newspapers such as the American Art Collector, Southwest Art, Albuquerque Journal, The Santa Fean, and Focus Magazine.  She is a member of the Oil Painters of America, Outdoor Painters Society and the Portrait Society of America.  Melinda is currently represented by Alexandra Stevens Fine Art, Santa Fe, NM; Arts at Denver, Denver, CO; Greenwich House Gallery, Cincinatti, OH and OAGallery, Kirkwood, MO.

Each of the partnering cultural center brings its own audiences, artists, communities and history. By scheduling connected dates to display a different section of the show at each center, as if presenting “four chapters of the same book,” the ART214 exhibition creates a unique opportunity for the public to visit all the centers during Dallas Arts Month, while also promoting collaboration and cross-pollination of artists and audiences.

Art in all media created in the last three years will be accepted from artists who currenly live in the DFW and Greater North Texas region. All concepts and subject matter are welcome.

An entry fee is not required. The Jurors will review photographs of completed artwork and will select pieces for the exhibition.  Artists may submit up to two works of art for consideration.

All entries must be submitted online at

SDCC Calling All Female Artists of Color! Affirmations deadline Jan. 25

South Dallas Cultural Center and Urban Chatter invite female/women artists of color to submit work of any medium for this open call exhibition.

The intention of this exhibition is to show work that explores themes of identity, faith, religion, and the soul. Art should take into consideration how these themes connect to finding positivity and peace, and/or address inner tension and struggle as a woman of color. When addressing these themes, consider the repeated disrespect and unfair treatment of women. Think about the continuous micro-aggressions we endure and how they can alter our perceptions of ourselves and our importance in this world. With this psychologic warfare, it is important particularly for women to speak affirmations over our lives. We ask that you analyze and express these affirmations in your preferred medium.
