The future is bright for the Arts in Grand Prairie and the Association of Grand Prairie Artists!
GPAC and AGPA has a renewed vision and energy for the Arts in our community.
With the Association of GP Artists we, the Grand Prairie Arts Council, will be able to expand our Visual Arts Programing and our vision on Visual Arts within the Community.
The Arts Council will continue to expand arts programming so that the Uptown Theater, and venues throughout our community, will be filled with diverse art.

Association of Grand Prairie Artists
President - Myrle Knox,
Treasurer - Gary Kelly
Secretary - Sharon Pujol,
Event Coordinator - Liz Whittle
is a non-profit organization that meets monthly (except July and August). It provides a local forum for artists of all media to gather together to increase their knowledge, to network, and to reach out into the community through their creativity.
Members also have the opportunity to exhibit their artwork in participating local businesses on a rotating basis.
Our meetings feature demonstrations by well known artists and teachers, as well as periodic critiques of member's works. There is usually a short business meeting to keep everyone informed of our latest projects and new opportunities.
How to Join the AGPA
Our membership is increasing with each meeting and function, and we are learning about our community and how we can be involved in it as artists. We are excited as artists to be able to share our knowledge and learn from other artists in our community.
We are committed to the advancement of visual arts in our community. As members we are dedicated to the promotion, practice, preservation and instruction of fine art. We hope to enhance our city by actively using our individual skills and creativity to make art more visible and to provide instructional opportunity to those who are interested in growing as artists while we grow ourselves.
