We are all about supporting local artists, so it was really fantastic when we found this place by mistake, while eating at the Whataburger across the street. Then when we discovered online that they have 900 members, I had to see what it was all about.
Apparently, this group has been around for more than 40 years, and is now in a building that used to belong to the USO.
The Art Center features numerous galleries with a huge variety of art, and classrooms aimed at helping the local art community grow and have opportunities for collaboration- both things all artists need!
When I wanted to talk with someone who could answer some questions about the Center and how its artists became members and how other things functioned, there was no hesitation in sharing what information they had.
It seems to be a wonderful place to buy and showcase local art, allowing their local art community to thrive!! Not only will we be back, but in our own hometown, we will be patterning our offerings to our local artists in a similar way!
