Fem Fantastico

This state-wide competition juried by noted women's art scholar, Wendy Slatkin Ph.D., celebrates the strength and diversity of art made by Texas women. Although it had been many years since UTPB hosted an art competition, the number of entries was impressive. Over 200 works by 80 artists were submitted, and 59 were accepted by 59 artists.
