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.

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.

Nicole Goolsby

I specialize in: Crafts, Painting, Drawing

Hello, this is z0mbietreat. a little about me I love drawing and making things. I love my kids, my husband, anime, and video games. I’ve been drawing since I was a small child. it was something I really loved and kept doing, and it’s taking me years of practice to draw the way I do. I’ve had to teach myself how to do all of it. I just keep drawing, I never went to any school. I say this because everyone always asks "Where did you learn to do that? Who taught you how to do that?" And my all-time favorite, "Who did you inherit that skill from," as if it’s something passed down through a bloodline, instead of something that you earn and practice. I did it myself. I couldn’t afford art schools, but it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t give me a chance or that you shouldn’t like my art just because I couldn’t go to an actual art school. I still put in the work of practicing and drawing every day and always trying to make things training myself all the time I love doing all kinds of art things. And if you’re stuck with me this far and read this whole paragraph, thank you very much. Any support you offer is highly appreciated. I’m just a small time artist trying to do my best to make it. Any kind support is highly appreciated.
