Welcome to the Dallas / Ft Worth area DeviantArt group!

I started this group to meet and network with other deviants in the DFW Metroplex area. We hope to foster a community atmosphere where everyone is welcome and where there is support and help for everyone in meeting their goals as artists. Whatever your medium, your current level of skill, or your involvement in the community, we hope to provide resources to help you learn and grow as an artist and to market yourself and your work. :nod:

What Brings You Here?

What are you looking for in a local artists group? Here are some of the things we think you might be interested in. Jump right in and tell us in the comments if these are the activities you're interested in, or if there are other not-listed activities you'd like to see.

Comment with more ideas! :nod:


We understand that the internet isn't always the most civil place. :nod: We ask that you exercise a little extra caution in the DFW group. When speaking with group members, try to consider the DFW group to be an "in person" gathering. A good rule of thumb is "would I say this in person?" If you catch yourself about to say something here that you wouldn't normally face-to-face, it might be best to reconsider what you're saying. This should not be a barrier to expressing ideas - we believe in the free expression if ideas. :nod: We hope simply that you can find a way of expressing your ideas that is cordial. We also understand that people make mistakes and sometimes tempers flare - we're all human. And we hope that when such things happen, we can all take some time to reflect constructively on the situation and find ways to help avoid repeating these mistakes. If we all work together, we can keep the group a great place to be. :nod:

What's Next?

This group is brand new, so we don't really know yet what this group will look like. As we grow, we'll pay careful attention to the member's ideas and requests to make sure this group does as much as possible to help our members achieve their goals. I encourage you to contact me here or in private notes with any ideas of requests you might have.

Looking forward to it! :nod:

Hey all!

After watching the polls from the last journal, I have decided our first meet should be at the end of this month at the Dallas Museum of Art! I still need help picking which day is the best, since there was a tie between Saturday, March 29th and Sunday March 30th.

So without further ado, here's the final poll! That also means our Fort Worth Water Garden Devmeet will take place sometime in April! Let's just hope the weather cooperates with us.

EDIT: I will close voting at 11:00pm TONIGHT. Those who haven't voted, please do so before then!

The date has been set for Saturday, March 29th at 2pm!  We'll meet in the atrium and I will be sure to bring plenty of art supplies. I will try to arrive at least half an hour early. Just look for the person with a butt-ton of art supplies strewn across one of the tables.

Mark Your Calendars!

Yes, I know... I haven't posted in forever. I was just waiting for something interesting to say.


I have been discovered!

As many of you know, I teach an acrylic painting class at Michael's Arts & Crafts. One of my paintings was on display on the framing counter where the assistant manager of the Flying Horse Cafe saw it and asked if how she could contact me. It turns out that she books artists to display their work in the cafe for a month at a time. I get to be the featured artist for August and I'll be having my gallery opening on Saturday, August 9th from 9am to 12 noon.

So I just joined the group and I'm curious as to how the Devmeet went?

I'm sorry, but I may have submitted my most recent works to the wrong gallery folder. I'm still very new to groups, only 3 days! Should I withdraw, then resubmit? How does one fix that?

Hey guys. I'm not from Texas, I'm a Floridian. But I have a new drawing I just made of my comic that takes place in Dallas. Thought you might like it in your gallery. Let me know.
