ARTS IN THE SQUARE

This year, VAGF will have a booth at the Frisco Arts in the Square event. We are dedicated to our mission of promoting our artists, so we're offering our members this great opportunity to display their artwork and get more exposure for their art business. Another benefit our VAGF members can enjoy.

To apply for this event, please note the following:

- All selected artists are required to spend 2 hours at the booth promoting the artwork and VAGF.

- Due to space limitation, the artwork selection will be on a 1st come 1st serve basis.

- All members can submit up to 2 artwork, out of which one will be chosen to give a chance for as many members as possible to participate.

- All artwork submitted cannot exceed 30" in any direction.

- All artwork submitted must be ready to hang with proper wiring.

- A $20 submission fee applies upon acceptance. Payment can be done via credit card, cash or check (written to the Visual Arts Guild of Frisco) on the day of delivery.

- Submissions must be sent to info@vagf.org with "Frisco Arts in the Square Submission" written in the subject line.

- VAGF will retain a 30% commission from the sales of any artwork.

- In order to qualify, artists must be current in their VAGF membership.

As always, we promise our members to take excellent care of all their artwork as we do ours. However being at an outdoor booth, there's always the chance of inclement weather (strong winds & rain) especially here in TX. VAGF is not responsible for any damage that might happen to any artwork displayed at the booth.

ARTRAGEOUS - Art Juried Exhibition - 2018

We believe art is all about capturing new ideas in one form or another and showing the world the awesome creativity within these amazing Artworks.

This year we have two amazing judges Barbara Mason & Tammy Meinershagen.

Barbara Mason will be the juror for all the categories of the show.

Barbara feels her form of communicating with the world is through the expression of art. She enjoys freely expressing the magnificent abstract and intricate qualities of each subject that inspires her.  Pastels and Watercolors are among nature’s brightest and transparent examples of color. They allow her to create captivating combinations as they shift between high contrasts, complex compositions. Barbara feel as if nothing compares to capturing the magic in a still life painting, serenity of nature’s full light, or the crisp elegance of the waves reflecting the newly breaking sun, or the sultry charm hiding in shadows of a portrait or the harsh landscape against a gentle sky.  She combines hyperrealism with vibrant color and abstract forms to put a modern twist on the traditional classic images. With each layer of extraordinary detail and color, her intent is to capture the viewer’s curiosity and imagination as the paintings come alive on the surfaces. Each painting is a visual documentation of her journey as a painter.

Born and raised in the Midwestern United States she learned to appreciate the beauty and details in the smallest subjects. Growing up in an urban populated inner city she longed to see the open sky vista and vast ocean and landscape terrain. As an adult she began to travel and fulfill her childhood desire to explore, paint, experience areas around.  Barbara has traveled extensively all over the world to gain inspiration for her artwork. In addition to traveling throughout the United States, she has traveled to North and Eastern Africa, Greece, Italy, France, Barcelona, Spain, Northern and Southern Mexico, Turkey, British Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, and Bermuda.

Barbara’s artwork is collected nationally and internationally by hospitals, businesses, public art programs and private patrons. Barbara’s artwork was recently exhibited at the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry. She is a Signature member of The Pastel Society of American & the Pastel Society 0f the Southwest, and a recent graduate of The Business Council for the Arts (North Dallas Chapter). As a Business council for the Arts Alumni Barbara works closely with the organization and board to fulfill its mission to bridge creativity with commerce within the North Texas art community. Barbara is the owner of Dragonfly Studio Creations art gallery/studio, and Ndueseason Greeting Card Company. Barbara is a juried member of The International Guild of Realism, Artist of Texas and other local art organizations. She has exhibited her artwork in Springfield, Peoria, Batavia, Chicago, and Bloomington, Illinois: Cleveland , OH.;  Atlanta and Norcross GA.; Las Vegas, NV.; Philadelphia, PA.; Wilmington, DE.; Frisco, Dallas, Plano, Southlake, Denton, Irving, Garland, Houston, Clifton and San Antonio, Texas; Wichita, Topeka and Salina, KS.; Detroit, MI; California; Virginia; New York; New York; Rosemary Beach and Pensacola , Florida; Charleston, SC. and Albuquerque New Mexico, Carefree, Arizona and more.


Tammy Meinershagen, Executive Director of Frisco Arts. She will be in charge of selecting a new award category. It is the Honorable mention award for 'Artwork that speaks to me'

Named the 2017 "Spirit of Frisco" by the Chamber of Commerce and 2018 "Best
Advocate for the Arts" by Frisco STYLE Magazine, Tammy Meinershagen is the
leading voice of arts advocacy in Frisco and the Executive Director of Frisco
