VAGF sets new goals to promote Visual Arts in Frisco

Celebrating their members, donors, partners and their passion for promoting and educating on visual arts, the VAGF Celebration event was the place to be for all art lovers to discover how the organization plans to support and expand their goals to keep growing the art community in Frisco.

An installation with digital projections of 50 of their members artworks, an exhibit with 12 art pieces of past winners of their juried shows and with the unveiling of a new logo and branding, the visual arts guild of Frisco offered to all the attendees an energetic evening full of art talk, friendship and news.

With a community canvas on which to draw a circle with paint, the attendees were greeted. This was a circle that later showed them the base concept of the new logo, an endless spiral of brushstrokes that represents our community and how we all get together for the art.Lina Rincon, President of the VAGF greeted everyone and turned the evening over to Ron Hoover, Director of Governance, where he shared with all of us the past results of the VAGF and what is coming in the future. During the presentation, the Board was joined by Chris Duncan, Owner and Executive Director of Frisco School of Music and Performing Arts along with Steve South, Co-Owner and CFO, to announce the winners of the VAGF-FSMPA Paul Cezanne Student Art Scholarship. The scholarships were presented to Soomin Oh and Clare Reeder, who will received a full year of art classes, with all expenses paid, and participate in 3 art shows that the school organizes during the year.

Talking about what is upcoming, the Créme de la Créme invitation was shared and the Jurors were announced. Kristin Rivas, President of the Dallas Arts Dealers Association and Director at Samuel Lynne Galleries will be the shows Juror, and for the award “Art That Speaks to Me” we are glad to have as the Juror our Mayor of Frisco, Jeff Cheney.

After the presentation, the new image of the organization was live as their new face on the website and social media. All that was left was celebrating arts and enjoying good food, wine and a signature VAGF drink that everybody loved.

Special thanks to our partners and our sponsors for the night DiMario’s Restaurant, Nothing Bundt Cakes and Soulscape Fine Art as well as the Lincoln Experience Center for their Support.

It was definitely an evening to remember. A new act was unveiled and a new goal is set for the improved VAGF to take Frisco art community to the next level.

VAGF supported the 2019 Shawnee Trail Cowboy Day with fun face painting!

The Heritage Association of Frisco organized the Shawnee Trail Cowboy Day on September 28 to see what life was like for the cowboys along the Shawnee Trail. The half-day long event offered something for everyone and all the buildings in the Heritage Center were opened so everybody could enjoy them. Approximately 3000 people attended this incredible event.

Our volunteers lead by our Director of Community Outreach Deepa Koshaley were there bringing color and fun with some creative face painting. It was a fun afternoon for the family cowboy style.
