What we're about

DANG! is in need of a Co-organizer!

The Dallas Artists Networking Group Meetup (a.ka. dang!) was created by a husband and wife team of artists in September 2007. Nick and Natalie Hutchings established a monthly social for artists to come together to hang out, chat, collaborate and share information about exhibitions and calls-to-artists. After Nick was accepted to the MFA Painting Program at Washington University (St. Louis, MO), the Hutchings relinquished the group in July 2008 to Zoetina Veal, member since October 2007.

With the foundation laid by the Hutchings, the dedication of its new organizer and the participation of its members, DANG has grown to 600+ meetup members since its inception . This rapid growth (in size and member diversity) inspired its members to set some goals and to transform DANG into an organization with a mission.


“To support and promote the visual and performing arts in the greater Dallas community by empowering artists in all stages of their creative careers.”


* Provide artists with networking and learning situations that enable them to grow artistically.
