Welcome to the Rockwall Art League

The Rockwall Art League was established in 2000 in Rockwall, Texas. The purpose was to create a forum for area artists to share ideas, communicate, and support each other, bring an awareness of fine art to the community and provide scholarships to support the efforts of talented high school students. These goals are being realized through annual exhibits, programs, studio tours, the Tom Collins Memorial Scholarship, the ArtReach Program, and our cooperation with the American Society of Marine Artists to promote the Young Marine Artists Search in the North Texas region.

A newcomer to the art scene, Ashley Portals is known for using bright color and flowing form to explore human emotions by experiencing them, and then releasing them on canvas. Though most of her work is acrylic based, she is not easily pigeonholed, as she enjoys experimenting and believes it should always be a part of the artist’s journey to evolve and explore.

As to what she hopes to accomplish with her art, she says, “I want to make people feel something. I want to leave pieces of me in every work, and then, I want the viewer to recognize there’s a piece of them - an experience, a memory, or a feeling that they relate to in the piece. “

Ashley also serves as the Vice-President of the Rockwall Art League and is Co-Chair of the Fall Art Show. She also arranges for the Demonstrations by Art Professionals enjoyed each month at our member meetings. She has participated, as an Artist in the RAL Fall Show and is exhibiting in the DFW area, as well. She has also contributed her paintings to charities including the Rockwall Women's League for their annual fund raiser.

You can follow her latest works on Instagram @aportalsdesigns and purchase her work at

Some of her art will be on display and available for purchase April 20th at the Conception Art Show in Dallas, TX
