There is NO FEE for entries.
Each October, the Governor’s Committee on People with Disabilities creates a Texas poster for National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM), designed around a winning artist’s work. The poster is distributed to businesses and organizations to be displayed all across the State and the U.S.
Entries are accepted from any Texas artist with a disability. Entries must be received by email or postmarked by March 15. Artwork in any media is accepted; there is no specific theme required; no more than three entries per person. The winning artist must sign an agreement to donate the original artwork to the Governor’s Office.
TinasArt.net is an online art gallery featuring "Award-Winning Artists With Disabilities". We sell the portfolios of talented artists and also do commissioned pet portraits. We are now adding Pet Caricatures to our product line and are looking for talented Caricature Artists. If you would like to work from your home creating great caricature art please email Jeff directly.
Since VSA Texas no longer has our own gallery space, we are partnering with the Allendale Branch of BBVA Compass Bank in Austin. They are providing us with the wall space and we are providing them with beautiful art displays. We are currently accepting entries by local artists with disabilities for 2-month long solo shows at this space. Please ask for an entry form by emailing April Sullivan or calling 512-454-9912.
