New Year Brings Busy Calendar of Events to the Price Center
The New Year is upon us and so is a whole slate of new activities for the month of January at the Price Center. Here's a quick recap of some of the highlights:
OPERATION CLEAN-SWEEP UNDERWAY
To better serve our operations and clients, the Price Center will be closed Dec. 31 – January 8. Staff and volunteers will be working behind the scenes to clean up and improve the back-office processes. We will be re-organizing and rearranging staff office and facility storage spaces, as well as completing some more website enhancements to add to a better user-experience for individuals visiting our site for information and or to conduct business.
THE GROVE, TEXAS SET FOR JAN. 9 SHOWING FOR FIRST TUESDAY SMTX FILM SERIES
In 1972, Moody Anderson bought a ghost town and brought it back to life. Now, nearly four decades later, he faces the heart-wrenching task of dismantling and selling his collection of Americana artifacts used in hundreds of films, from Lonesome Dove to Second Hand Lions to The Texas Chainsaw Massacre to the Cohen Brothers' remake of True Grit. The Grove, Texas reveals the emotional storm of doubt, excitement, and sense of closure as Moody puts his life’s passion in the hands of a young auctioneer.

NEW MONTHLY ECLECTICA LEARNING SERIES BEGINS JANUARY 19
Local artist and educator, Glynis Christine is heading up a new free monthly workshop series at the Price Center. The series is designed to educate by using a more experiential style with seasoned professionals as the teachers. These instructors know what they’re talking about but (more importantly) they know how to make a session informative, interesting, and fun!
The first offering, “The Art or mARKeTing,” will focus on the ways marketing and advertising are different and how you can use both to sell your art.
The class will be offered Friday, Jan. 19 from noon-2 pm. Seating is limited, and a reservation is required. Interested parties should email:
