Who we are...

DK was established in 1993 by a small group of local artists to help promote the visual arts and art education in Fredericksburg Texas, and surrounding counties, which are centrally located in the beautiful Texas Hill Country.  
Die Künstler von Fredericksburg (The Artists of Fredericksburg), a non-profit organization, was formed to provide opportunities for both artists and patrons to become acquainted with area craftsmen.  
Since our humble beginnings, we have grown to over 100 artists, and we are proud that Fredericksburg Texas is now becoming a major USA art destination!
