Dumas Ave., on Hwy. 287) in Dumas, TX from 2:00 to 4:00 pm CT for the opening reception of a new art exhibit showcasing work by the Amarillo Art Institute’s students, teachers, and partners.

Today on High Plains Morning, we heard from Rachel Flores, Executive Director at the Amarillo Art Institute (AAI), about two upcoming exhibits in the Texas Panhandle this Spring. So if you’re an artist and want to submit your work, mark your calendar! There will be an exhibit hosted by The Art Center in Dumas, Texas in March. The works on display will be from students, members, and instructors of AAI. The deadline to submit is March 5 at 5:00 p.m.

Today, we spoke with Rachel Flores, the Executive Director of Amarillo Art Institute, about the latest iteration of their annual Holiday Market and Potters Show. Despite the many delays and adjustments to the schedule, these two events are UP AND RUNNING, with safety procedures in place to protect the shoppers, the vendors, and the volunteers.

Thanks so much to Beth Duke for stopping by High Plains Morning to remind folks about a holiday tradition. Amarillo’s Electric Light Parade is how Center City welcomes the holidays: with a lighted parade rolling through downtown Amarillo. It took place on Friday, December 6th with an unprecedented crowd and list of participants. This year's theme will be "March of the Toys".
