Established in 2017 by Jessica Ingle, Texas Vignette’s mission is to address the gender disparity gap in the art world by supporting and promoting women artists in the state. According to a press release, the annual fair is “among the only fully submission-based art fairs in the world that solely features the work of women artists where 100% of all sales go directly to the artists.”

This year, Emily Edwards, Associate Curator at Dallas Contemporary, served as the Vignette Art Fair curator. She noted that a record number of entries were received. Over 200 submissions came from Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston, Austin, Abilene, Nacogdoches, and beyond.

Ms. Edwards remarked, “We are thrilled by the overwhelming response to the call for applications this year, with more women artists than ever applying to be part of the Vignette Art Fair. I’m humbled by the diversity and quality of talent, which encourages us at Texas Vignette to continue our mission of raising the profile of exceptional women artists, a group needing representation more than ever in the state’s current climate.”
