New email address!  – As you can see, we have migrated our email account to gmail.  We were having a lot of trouble with our yahoo account, so we thought we’d give gmail a try. Please add ghosttownartstx@gmail.com to your address book so that we won’t be filtered into your Spam folder.  Also, as always, if you do not wish to receive emails from us, please just reply to any message and ask me to remove you from our mailing list.


Two Minute Pure Contour Drawing

Life Drawing Workshops

Our life drawing workshops are off to a great start.  It is an invigorating way to brush up on your drawing skills or a fun way to learn something new.  The workshops meet weekly on Wednesday evenings from 7 – 10 pm now through June 29.  The cost is $10 per person per session, pay at the door.  Email us to sign up!


Motley Fools Pickup

Pickup for the Motley Fools Exhibit will be on Saturday, June 11 from 10 am – noon.  This will also be a workday for us, so the earlier you can come, the better.  If you can’t come during this time frame, contact us to work out another time.


Summer Gallery Workday

We will be having another workday on the gallery space on Saturday, June 11 from 10 am – 4 pm.  The main goal for this workday is to scrape up the old loose linoleum tiles from the floor, as well as to patch the walls and do some touch up painting. Please come give us a hand!  We’ll have some tools, but bring scrapers, gloves, fans, as well as a low stool, kneeler or knee pads for yourself if you have them.  If you volunteer during the workday for at least one hour we will waive your next entry fee for one of our exhibits!


Summer Exhibit at the new Ghost Town Gallery

Our next exhibit will be at the new Ghost Town Gallery on July 9 from 7 – 10 pm.  There is as yet no theme for this exhibit (I’m thinking we’ll call it ‘Hot Hot Hot!’), and entries in all media will be accepted.  There is an entry fee of $10 for three entries.  I will send a full call for entries as more details emerge.  Please go ahead and put it on your calendar, and if you’ll be around then plan to come and party with us!

Muscle Memory Dance Theater and Ghost Town Arts Collective Collaboration

We are pleased to announce that we will be collaborating with Muscle Memory Dance Theater, a modern dance company currently working out of Life in Deep Ellum in Dallas, on a project for the fall.  This will be a multi-media event that will include an exhibit in the gallery at Life as well as a dance concert/ Avant-garde art and dance event in their performance space.  We are still in the early planning stages for this event, but we are confident that it will be incredible; stay tuned for more information.


We’d love to hear about what you are up to, too. Send us an email, comment on our blog, or leave a note on our facebook page.  Even more importantly, we hope to see you out at one of our events this summer!!
