PRICE CENTER ANNUAL MEETING AND "REVISIONS" ART RECEPTION SET FOR MAY 17
The Price Center will host its annual membership meeting and election of officers on Wed., May 17 from 6-8 p.m. The event will begin with an art show and reception, light refreshments, opportunities to visit Shop 1893, and a chance to renew or start a membership, all accompanied by live music from Mark Cruz.
A brief formal annual meeting including remarks and an election of officers will take place in the 1910 Room at 6:30 followed by another round of socializing and more till 8.
“It’s been a busy and rewarding 12 months at the Price Center,” said Joan Nagel, board and arts committee chairperson. “We are grateful to all our volunteers and members. We couldn’t do it without you,” she exclaimed.
Reusing and recycling is the concept behind the latest gallery exhibit, Revisions: An Upcycled Exhibit, which features 77 innovative and inspiring artworks by 68 area artists. The exhibit is on display throughout the first-floor galleries of the Price Center.
Revisions is a feast for the eyes and imagination with masterfully clever, colorful, and creative works made from a wide variety of common and often disposable materials. Many of the works are for sale, and a portion of any sales benefits the ongoing art efforts at the Center.
In 2022, the Price Center was proclaimed a valuable community resource by San Marcos Mayor Jane Hughson during the nonprofit’s 20th anniversary celebration, and then capped the year by being named Best Art Gallery and Best Community Center/Social Venue by readers of the San Marcos Daily Record in their annual Best of Hays contest.
The Annual Meeting and Art Reception event is free and open to the public. Members and non-members alike are welcome.
