Special collections (non-juried) also include original works and fine art prints from many early El Paso artists including Tom Lea, Jose Cisneros, Manuel Acosta, Kate Ball, Lester Hughes and many more.
The KCOS Art Auction gives local artists the opportunity to display their best work all while giving our viewers the chance to win and bid on their favorite piece(s).
