Art from Across HPPR Land: "Postcards from the High Plains" on Oct. 17 in Amarillo

Don’t miss Postcards from the High Plains, a juried exhibition to benefit High Plains Public Radio during our Fall Membership Campaign. The opening reception will take place Thursday, October 17th from 6–8:30 PM at the Cerulean Gallery (814 S. Taylor St.) in Amarillo. Proceeds from the sale of all donated artwork will benefit the programming you hear on HPPR.

Enjoy food, drinks, live music , and regional art—all to support your public radio station. This exhibition, juried by gallery owner Caroline Kneese, features artists from across our listening region, working in a variety of media: oil, acrylic, watercolor, photography, collage, ceramic, and more. It’s part of the year-long celebration of "This is HPPR LAND"—the shared community of the five states that make up HPPR’s broadcast area. The exhibition will close on Friday, December 20th.
