Arts/Therapy: Caliche Co. Welcomes the Amarillo Cools This Saturday
Look out, Amarillo. There's a new art + music+ vintage resale + counseling collective in town! (Wait, what?) Yes, the creative minds of Caliche Co. have just secured the single weirdest thing that's hit Bomb City since Hayden Pedigo's City Council campaign. This week on High Plains Morning, I sat down with Lance Garza to discuss this highly creative endeavor. He reps for the "music" chunk of the group as the founder of Bitter Buffalo Records, while his partner Ashley Allcorn holds up the mental health part of the space with her new practice, Caliche Counseling. The other two pillars are Amarillo artist and educator, Kegan Hollis, heading up Lasso Gallery; and his partner, McKabry Hollis, managing her curated vintage resale shop, Odd Objects. Together, they envision Caliche Co. as a community space for small events, in-store performances, literary readings, film screenings, support groups, and pretty much anything else you could fathom that promotes creative "togetherness."
The storefront will open its doors this July, but the crew invites you to stop by The 806 Coffee + Lounge this Saturday, June 12th for a meet-and-greet with the founders. The coffee shop is located at 2812 6th Ave. in Amarillo, and the you can meet Caliche Co. from 1:00 to 6:00 PM CT. They'll have a pop-up featuring art, music, vintage goods, jewelry, and information about mental health resources. For more info, call Caliche Co. at (806) 231-1846 or via email.
