Art Center History
The Old Chicken Farm Art Center, founded in 1971 as a place for artists to live and work, with help from a lot of friends, the Art Center has grown into a premier West Texas / San Angelo attraction.Through the years sharing the wonderful world of art has always been Roger Allen's main objective. This unique 3 acre compound has the StarKeeper Gallery, 20 artists studios, a wonderful Bed and Breakfast (Inn at the Art Center), and SALT at the Silo House Restaurant,The Art Center also serves as home for Roger and Pam, and Jerry and Susan.Throughout the year we host 1st Saturday each month with a featured artist, great acoustic music with the Chicken Pickers, blacksmiths, free clay for kids (all ages), and demonstrations. Four major events include San Angelo ceramic event in April, the Blacksmith Fellowship in May,the Richard & Pam Salmon Sculpture Competition in October and a huge 3 day Thanksgiving Open House in November.
