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 or click the button below.

My art reflects what is going on with me, how I feel about our culture, environment, and social interactions. I primarily work with steel which I fabricate and weld into art pieces. Many of my pieces include found metal pieces that are incorporated into the piece. I do paint as well.

B.C. Gilbert

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."

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.
