Texas Artists Selected for the Arkansas Museum of Fine Arts “2024 Delta Triennial”

by Jessica Fuentes May 7, 2024

The Arkansas Museum of Fine Arts (AMFA) has announced the 39 selected and seven invited artists who will participate in its 2024 Delta Triennial, including seven artists from Texas. 

The Delta exhibition was first held in 1958 with the goal of highlighting artists working in the Mid-South, including Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Oklahoma, Tennessee, and Texas. In 2022, because the AMFA was under construction, the show shifted from its annual juried exhibition format to a series of videos titled Delta Voices: Artists of the Mid-South, which was produced in collaboration with other regional museums. This year, the exhibition has been reimagined as a triennial juried show. The jurors were Amy Kligman, Executive Director of the Charlotte Street Foundation in Kansas City; Alexis McGrigg, a Delta Voices participating artist from Mississippi; and Takako Tanabe, the founding director of Ulterior Gallery in New York City. 

In a press release, Brian J. Lang, the Chief Curator of AMFA and Windgate Foundation Curator of Contemporary Craft, shared, “This year, AMFA received over 1,200 applications –– a record-breaking number for AMFA’s Delta exhibition. The sheer volume of applicants allowed jurors to select a truly exceptional showcase of art from the Mid-South. The 2024 Delta Triennial will be a display of unparalleled creativity and talent, making it a must-see exhibition for art enthusiasts and museumgoers alike.”

The selected Texas artists include Colette Copeland in Frisco; Brian Ellison and Lindsay Peyton in Houston; Andrew Lyman and Leigh Merrill in Dallas; and Philana Oliphant in Tyler. Additionally, Letitia Huckaby (in Fort Worth) was among the invited artists, each of whom will represent a Mid-South state. See a full list of selected and invited artists below.
