The award is given annually to a North Texas artist who “has exhibited professionally for at least 10 years and has established a proven track record as a community advocate for the visual arts.” It comes with a cash prize of $2,500. Established in 1995, the Moss/Chumley Artist Award is open to artists working in any medium who live in one of 11 North Texas counties: Collin, Dallas, Denton, Ellis, Hunt, Johnson, Kaufman, Parker, Rockwall, Tarrant and Wise. The jury of five included Annette Lawrence, the 2015 winner of the award.
“I am humbled to be the recipient of the Moss/Chumley award,” Huckaby said in a statement, “because it is an award that is not just based on the merit of the work, but also on the merit of the person.”
