New Texas Talent XX @ Craighead Green Gallery
New Texas Talent has been the segue into the commercial market for emerging artists since 1994. Artists submit hundreds of images each year, and jurors choose which ones to feature in the New Texas Talent exhibit. This event gives great media exposure for the fresh visual artists and usually this leads to gallery representation and/or invitations to future exhibits! Come check out Texas’s new talent so that you can say you knew about them first!
