Like the music scene here, the art scene has some very solid work in some very well-run art spaces. One good way to pass the time on a first Friday or a Saturday afternoon: spend it gallery-hopping at these places. A lovely time of visual enlightenment and stimulation is sure to be had.
Process Art House 700 South Van Buren, Amarillo TX 79101. Always something new and fun going on here.
Red Gallery 2751 Civic Circle, Amarillo TX 79106. This newer gallery of the past few months features an eclectic mix of Amarillo artists, both well-known and up and coming artists.
Diio Gallery Studio 59, 3701 Plains Blvd, Amarillo TX 79102. This gallery opened in the past month, and they are also dedicated to promoting local artists.
The 806 2812 SW 6th, Amarillo TX 79106. Every first Thursday of each month has an art opening/ reception of either a solo show or a group show. They also have great coffee.
These are just a few of the many wonderful spaces in the area. Recurring posts listing galleries to come.
