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 us at info@wichitafallsarts.org or click the button below.

Anthony Campos

I specialize in: Fashion Design, Muralist/Public Art, Painting, Drawing

Read Bio

My name is Anthony David Campos. I was born in Los Angeles, CA. I currently reside in Wichita Falls, TX. I’ve had a talent for Art since 1994, and began practicing professionally in 2016. I’ve been working on and pursuing passionately ever since. The medium I currently work on is oil paints, which I truly love and enjoy. I use different techniques, such as, glazing and wet on wet to create my work. Although I’d like to say I was born with this creativity, I am self-taught. I've become a painter by watching people who have inspired me, including my beautiful mother's creativity. I’ve also learned a lot from observing the work of Robert Peterson, an Artist based in Lawton, Oklahoma.

I am inspired by the work of Monica Ikegwu, Floyd Strickland and Kahinde Wiley. I’m passionate about spreading a message to the world that will uplift humankind to spread love, unity, kindness, care, ambition and positivity. I believe the ultimate way to do that is to show it through yourself first. My goal is to make a huge impact on every person’s life I
come across. May that impact create a smile.

Scotty Coppage

I specialize in: Literary Arts, Media Arts

Read Bio

It started out with love notes to my babysitter and letters to George Lucas. It then became writing short stories about Indiana Jones’s nephew Alabama Jones as a kid. It continued through journalism classes and papers in college. Even as a teacher, trying to foster a love for writing or at least being able to use a comma in a STAAR essay. I published a book about teaching and building relationships called "Silver Bullet Classroom Management." My whole life I’ve been a writer, storyteller. After 13 years of teaching, I left the classroom to bet on my writing, my podcast and myself. A coming age tale at 40 years old amidst a pandemic.

I participated in Storytellers for Wichita Falls Museum of Art at MSU Texas and wrote “Pet of the Month” features for Wichita Falls Neighbors with the hopes of turning all these foster dog stories into a book. I’ve grown my writing through Writers League of Texas courses in Memoir, taught a class for teens about creativity, and help others with their writing.

Going to the movies has always been a sanctuary. I even proposed at the Alamo Drafthouse. My wife and I have a podcast called Mac N Cheese Movies where we cook a dish in the film or related to the film, watch the movie and talk about both. The podcast has grown through the Artist Development Program. I got a website off the ground for the podcast. There have been tie-ins with regional museums to promote their exhibitions. In 2022, I was able to go to Podcast Movement, a conference for podcasting to learn, network and grow Mac N Cheese Movies. At over 100 episodes and a website, I’m ready to see what this baby can do.

I am a mixed media artist who has been exhibited in the Memento Show from 2020-2022.

In 2022, I did an artist residency about Booker T. Washington High School, helping Brenda Jarrett with her book on the school and East Side of Wichita Falls. I recorded interviews and helped set up some organization to help bring her work to life.

Writing, podcasts and art were always side hustles, hobbies and long shots. 2020 made me recalibrate what I want out of my life and it’s to take things off the backburner that I’m passionate about.

I am a recent Midwestern State University graduate. I completed my degree with a BFA-TC and my emphasis was painting. Now, I am seeking to further my art career and take hold of opportunities that will aid me in doing so. My art is usually focused on BIPOC people and their voices. Yet, as someone who is also a part of that community, I also share my own voice in my works as well. I also speak on the topic of mental health. I like using contrasting sets of colors such as greyscale versus vibrant pastel tones.

B.C. Gilbert

I specialize in: Muralist/Public Art, Painting, Sculpture/3D

Read Bio

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."

Devan Gill

I specialize in: Graphic Design

Read Bio

For as long as I can remember, I have always been enamored with the endless possibilities of art and design. It has since become my life's ambition to create eye-grabbing designs that contain the conceptual and emotional depth of fine art. From posters and logos to abstract collage and concept pieces, I create for myself first and foremost, but will embrace professional and collaborative projects whenever they arise.

In 2011, I graduated from Midwestern State University with a BA in Mass Communication and Digital Media. As you can imagine, most of my life has been spent tinkering with a variety of creative mediums, including poetry, painting, photography, and a dab or two of amateur filmmaking. I started seeing the possibilities of digital art/design around 2006 and I've been honing my abilities in that field ever since.
