Myrle Knox was a former president of the Grand Prairie Association of Artists and an avid painter. She was well known by her community for her classy taste, her stylish looks and her art. She had a passion for art that surpassed anyones understanding and it showed throughout the town of Grand Prairie as well as through the homes of her loved ones. Our annual art show is held in memory of our dear friend and fellow artist.
