New Texas Talent is designed to introduce and promote emerging visual artists in the commercial market. Each year hundreds of images are submitted for review.

The exhibition and its participants have also received media exposure in such publications as D Magazine, The Dallas Morning News, The Observer and the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, A+C Magazine and many others.
