Artist Roster view_module list
The Alliance has developed an Artist Roster, a database (including artists’ biographies, areas of expertise and contact information) of area artists and art education professionals to build a broad and culturally diverse database of artists and arts entrepreneurs in our community.
The Alliance Artists Roster is a service to schools, libraries, arts organizations, event organizers, businesses and other service providers in our area who often want to engage creative folks and artists to work with them. And of course – we want to bring more visibility to the artists who live and work in our community!
The Artist Roster is open to any area artist who feels they have arts experiences to share, as long as they provide the necessary information and can define what they have to offer.
To submit your information – or to let us know of artists in the community that we should include, contact is at email@example.com or click the button below.

B.C. Gilbert was born and raised in Amarillo, TX on the high plains of the Texas Panhandle, a beautiful, yet sometimes harsh environment. Much of the imagery found in his artwork is influenced by the surroundings he was exposed to growing up.
He received a BFA in painting in 1997 from Cameron University in Lawton, OK and an MFA in painting and sculpture in 2001 from Texas Tech University in Lubbock, TX.
He is now based out of Wichita Falls, TX where he is a working and exhibiting artist as well as an art instructor at Rider High School and adjunct professor at Midwestern State University.
"The work which I create is a culmination of several factors including, but not limited to, situations past and present, references to nostalgic tendencies, environmental surroundings of popular culture (specifically my own), and an obsession with the depiction of Americana in a traditional vs. nontraditional and unpredictable format.
Through these means and using the mediums of painting and printmaking, as well as the devices of construction, found objects, and even premeditated environments similar to installations, it is my desire and focus to reinvent and reinterpret pre-conceived stereotypes and to pose and suggest those question’s for the supposed audience."
Brea’n Thompson is a Texas based muralist and artist whose painting relies heavily on the psychology of the brain and the illusion of movement stemming from intense study of psychological, hydrological and geological processes.

Cindy Kahler Thomas showed an early interest in art. As a child, she would get out the round suitcase that held her art and show it to anyone who would sit still long enough to look. She excelled at art throughout her first 12 years of school, and upon graduation she became a cosmetologists playing with colors in a different way. She sculpted her client’s hair and vented her artistic sensibilities that way.
She graduated from Midwestern State University, but only took one art class and that was in photography, which she thoroughly enjoyed and did quite well in it. Then in her 30’s her lifelong friend introduced her to stain glass mosaics, and she fell in love. Her favorite media is stained glass and ink.
She is now a volunteer of the Wichita Falls Art Association, and feels privileged to be surrounded by art at the group’s gallery at 600 8th Street where she often shows her art. She also teaches art classes to children at the Kemp Center for the Arts. She also takes part in the After Hours Art Walk.
She is proud to be a wife, mother and grandmother, and counts her family and her faith as her greatest assets. She can be reached at 940-733-1562 or CindyKThomas@aol.com.
Telling stories is what I do best as a graphic artist. My goal is to present striking digital imagery, no matter how simple or complex, to engage a variety of audiences in professional and non-professional settings the way a good movie or piece of music would. I do art pieces, posters, logos, album covers, and t-shirts.
