This year’s Awards to Artists go to…

Every year my colleagues and I look forward to celebrating up-and-coming and established artists in our event wherein the year’s recipients discuss their work and goals. I anxiously anticipate it every year, and this year was no exception. We were lucky enough to have two representatives of the DeGolyer and Kimbrough families, and that’s always a delight for the winners to meet them and show their gratitude.

Recipients of both the The Clare Hart DeGolyer Memorial Fund and The Arch and Anne Giles Kimbrough Fund have gone on to lead immensely successful careers as The Otis and Velma Davis Dozier Travel Grant recipients have continued on securing exhibitions, commissions and accessioning of their works in major public and private collections. Awards to Artists grants have been presented to more than 235 artists. Over the course of the past 31 years in the case of the DeGolyer and Kimbrough Awards, and 21 years in the case of Dozier, the DMA has acquired works by many of the recipients. See for yourself!
