DALLAS, TX.- The Dallas Museum of Art announced its 2019 Awards to Artists. This year, 13 artists received one of three awards: the Clare Hart DeGolyer Memorial Fund Award, the Arch and Anne Giles Kimbrough Fund Award, and the Otis and Velma Davis Dozier Travel Grant. All of the recipients this year are from Texas; four are based in the Dallas–Fort Worth area, six are from the Austin area, and three work in the Houston area. Kristen Gaylord, the Assistant Curator of Photographs at the Amon Carter Museum of American Art in Fort Worth, served as this year’s guest juror.

“We are thrilled to continue our support for some of the most promising and dynamic artists in our community with the Awards to Artists grants,” said Anna Katherine Brodbeck, the DMA’s Hoffman Family Senior Curator of Contemporary Art. “We look forward to seeing how their probing, incisive work continues to rearticulate our understanding of themes including the body, gender, technology, and rituals of belonging.”

The funds will support a range of artistic activities: publication of art books and travel to art book fairs, photography equipment, artist residencies, classes on glass-making techniques, studio space, production of videos concerning aging, fiction, and masculinity, etc. The Otis and Velma Davis Dozier Travel Grant will support travel to France and Malta to view masterpieces of the baroque style and to Cameroon and Ghana to study masquerade traditions. The artists’ practices span the breadth of contemporary art today, encompassing photography, sculpture, installation, video, painting, and sound art.

• Isabella Cilia

Awards to Artists grants have been awarded to more than 300 recipients, many of whom have gone on to successful careers within North Texas and across the country. Over the years, the DMA has acquired works from many of the artists who have received awards from the DeGolyer, Kimbrough, and Dozier funds. DeGolyer artists include Jeff Elrod, Misty Keasler, and Robyn O’Neil. Kimbrough artists include David Bates, Trenton Doyle Hancock, Lawrence Lee, Melissa Miller, Robert Pruitt, Michael Miller, Erick Swenson, and Kelli Connell. Dozier artists include Helen Altman, Scott Barber, Julie Bozzi, Joseph Havel, Stephen Lapthisophon, Annette Lawrence, Katrina Moorhead, John Pomara, and Ludwig Schwarz.

The Museum’s annual awards were established in 1980 by the Clare Hart DeGolyer Memorial Fund and the Arch and Anne Giles Kimbrough Fund to recognize exceptional talent and potential in young visual artists who show a commitment to continuing their artistic endeavors. The two funds have awarded over $610,000 to artists since their founding.

Created in 1990, the Otis and Velma Davis Dozier Travel Grant honors the memory of Dallas artists Otis and Velma Dozier, who strongly believed in the enriching influence of travel on an artist’s work. The grant seeks to recognize exceptional talent in professional artists who wish to expand their artistic horizons through domestic or foreign travel and is awarded to professional artists at least 30 years of age who reside in Texas. Since the fund’s development, the Otis and Velma Davis Dozier Travel Grant has given over $190,000.
