2017 Texas and Neighbors Preview Gallery

The 32nd Texas & Neighbors Regional Art Exhibition
APRIL 29 – JUNE 3, 2017
Irving Arts Center

This year the Texas & Neighbors competition received a record 585 entries from 230 artists residing in the five states of the regional show. Juror Michael Holter was given the daunting task of selecting just 75 pieces to be shown in this year’s exhibition. He did a wonderful job of selecting outstanding artwork from such a huge pool of quality work.

Congratulations to those 12 Irving Art Association members whose work was chosen: Helen Bailey, Anannya Chowdhury, Patricia Craft, Steve Danner, Sharon Giles, Ann Hardy, Patsy Lindamood, Carol Mitchell, Kenji Nishikawa, Henry Prikyl, Behnaz Sohrabian, and David Tripp.
