Upcoming art exhibitions will focus on felines, feature work by a bestselling author and reimagine a popular TV drama.
Photographer and radio personality Amy Hart will have work featured at YCSF Craft, 2916 Wolflin Ave., through Nov. 30.
Breaking Broads officially opens with a reception from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday.
The photographs were inspired by the AMC drama Breaking Bad, Hart said.
"I'm a pop culture nerd, so when I saw a mural of Breaking Bad's Jesse Pinkman painted on a wall downtown I knew I had to use it for a photo shoot. I wanted this collection of photographs to be kitschy and fun, but also have a high-fashion vibe to them," Hart said. "Breaking Bad has entered into cult status, so paying homage to the show using female models was a blast. I like thinking about what the show would've been like if Walter and Jesse were both played by women. I think there would've been some differences, but the end result would have ultimately been the same."
One on One
An art show fundraiser benefiting Panhandle Adult Rebuilding Center will offer a work by Denver Moore, the New York Times bestselling author of Same Kind of Different As Me.
Moore's work, donated by Cerulean Gallery, will be sold in a live auction. The fundraiser also will feature about 10 pieces of collaborative art sold in a silent auction, as well as heavy hors d'oeuvres, cocktails and live music.
Proceeds benefit PARC, which offers conversation and collaboration for guided activities, projects, and classes for the homeless in Amarillo.
Tickets are $75. Call 806-367-8024.
