 Artists of Texas 2009-2020

The Artists of Texas was founded in Spring 2009 by Laurie Justus Pace, Debbie Grayson Lincoln and Vernita Bridges Hoyt. Membership has grown from 35 members that first year to over 150 juried in professional artists.  With AOT volunteer members doing most of the work, AOT keeps its membership fees at a minimum and offers artists the opportunity to exchange and share marketing techniques and ideas. The collected dues cover the cost of our websites and help with our shows each year.
