Saturday, April 25 & Sunday, April 26 • 9am–5pm

Artscape returns in 2020 for its 14th year and is one of the most spectacular, must-see art festivals in North Texas. The show brings together about 100 outstanding artists from around the country and features a variety of mediums including painting, sculpture, 2D and 3D mixed media, photography and more. Listed as one of the 15 most beautiful gardens in the world by Architectural Digest, the Arboretum is a perfect complement to the beautiful artwork selected for the show.

Artscape has something for everyone:

  • Around 100 professional artists showcasing their exceptional art – paintings, sculpture, jewelry, photography, woodwork and more;
  • Galleries at the DeGolyer House featuring top galleries exhibiting and selling art with a percentage of sales benefiting the Arboretum;
  • A University Zone with regional university students, high school students and faculty showing and selling their art;
  • Live musical entertainment in the Pecan Grove;
  • Food concessions, packaged treats, craft beer and wine;
  • Free tastings of beer, wine and cider by the DeGolyer House;
  • A Children’s Art Escape featuring hands-on art activities for kids to make and take home;
  • A new, exciting fashion exhibit, HKS TRASHion Show, displays beautiful garments made from recycled materials that align with the firm’s goal of making HKS a beacon of responsible architectural practice. This year’s theme, The Urgency of Time, asked designers to include the U.N. Sustainable Development Goal as inspiration for their works of art. Garments are displayed in the Orientation Theater from April 24–26.

How to Apply

This year the Dallas Arboretum is using the ZAPP application forum for Artscape submissions, allowing artists to easily apply to the show and keep track of where their application is in the process.

ZAPP affords:
– Easy communication between the artist and show producers
– Ability to upload high-resolution images of artwork for jury review
– Convenient access to artwork images for jury review, and online scoring
Artists may apply once per category, and in no more than two. Collaborating artists may apply to participate in the show, but only joint work may be shown and sold. Both names must appear on all application materials and both artists must contribute to the creation of the art pieces.
