Artists can hang their own work for the AMoA Open.

By Chip Chandler — Digital Content Producer

Artists of all types can install one example of their own work at Amarillo Museum of Art beginning Friday.

The annual AMoA Open is designed to let any artist, no matter their age or experience level, display their work in a museum setting.

Artists may install their works between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Friday and 1 and 4 p.m. Saturday.

The opening reception runs from 7 to 9 p.m. Saturday at the museum, 2200 S. Van Buren St. The exhibition will close Jan. 14; artists may de-install works from 1 to 5 p.m. that day.

The show is hung by the artists salon-style from floor to ceiling, and the museum will provide pins, nails, hammers and a limited number of pedestals. Artwork hung on the walls must not exceed 5 foot square, and only one work per artist is accepted.

All artwork is subject to review; artwork must be appropriate for all ages. Label material will be provided, and no additional label material is allowed, including business cards or artist statements. 

Wall space and pedestals are available on a first-come, first-served basis, so artists are encouraged to begin installation early.

Admission to the opening reception is free for AMoA members and children 12 and younger, or $10 for non-members.
