The Dallas-based Meadows Museum, part of Southern Methodist University’s Meadows School of the Arts, has sent out a call for applications for its 2023 Moss/Chumley North Texas Artist Award. 

Each year since 1995, the award has been bestowed upon a North Texas artist of note who has, according to a press release from the museum, “exhibited professionally for at least ten years and who has a proven track record as an active community advocate for the visual arts.” 

Artists working in drawing, painting, sculpture, assemblage, construction, video, photography, performance, and installation will be considered. This year’s prize of $3,000 (up from $2,500 last year) will be awarded to an artist from one of the following North Texas counties: Collin, Dallas, Denton, Ellis, Hunt, Johnson, Kaufman, Parker, Rockwall, Tarrant or Wise.
