Texas Vignette seeks female, and female-identifying, artists of all disciplines for Vignette Art Fair 2019 in the Women’s Museum Building at Fair Park, April 10th–14th. This fair will promote women in the arts in Texas and showcase the work of creative minds that have been under recognized by art institutions and establishments. This is a wonderful opportunity to show your work in a beautiful building dedicated to women. This exhibition will provide ample exposure, as it will have extensive advertising by both the organization and Fair Park, and will receive local and potentially national press. All selected artists will receive one image on our exhibition page with a link to their website.

This year’s fair will be curated by Leslie Moody Castro, an independent curator and writer whose practice is based on itinerancy and collaboration. She has produced, organized, and collaborated on projects in Mexico and the United States for more than a decade, and her repertoire of critical writing is also reflective of her commitment to place. She is committed to creating moments of artistic exchange and dialogue and as such is a co-founder of Unlisted Projects, an artist residency program in Austin, Texas. In 2017, she was selected as Curator and Artistic Director of the sixth edition of the Texas Biennial and was recently the first invited curator in residence at the Galveston Artist Residency. Moody Castro earned a Master’s degree at The University of Texas at Austin in Museum Education with a portfolio supplement in Museum Studies in 2010, and a Bachelor’s degree in Art History at DePaul University in Chicago in 2004, and has been awarded two grants from the National Endowment of Arts for her curatorial projects (2016, 2017).
