The Moss/Chumley Memorial Fund was established in 1989 by Frank Moss in memory of Jim Chumley. Upon Mr. Moss’ death in 1991, his name was added to the award. Mr. Moss and Mr. Chumley were Dallas art dealers who contributed significantly to the North Texas visual arts scene in the 1980s. They operated the Nimbus Gallery from 1980 to 1987 and the Moss/Chumley Gallery from 1986 to 1989. The Moss/Chumley North Texas Artist Award was established in 1995.
Last year’s recipient was Alicia Eggert. Other recent recipients include Bernardo Vallarino, Carolyn Sortor, Giovanni Valderas, Sedrick Huckaby, Annette Lawrence and Juliette McCullough. To see a full list of previous awardees and to apply, visit the Meadows website.
