Sharing The Art Spirit Since 1971
Who We Are
The Chicken Farm Art Center is a community of artists and makers our humble little corner of West Texas. Whether you're coming in to spend the day for one of our events, shop for something truly one-of-a-kind, or take a class with one of our resident artists, you'll find a unique atmosphere and inspiration hidden in every little nook and cranny. We opened our doors in 1971; the dream of three artist friends, Roger Allen, Bill Rich, and Richard Ramirez, and we continue this dream that is our reality through to this day!
Encouraging and Inspiring Artists and Art Lovers
At The Chicken Farm Art Center, our mission is to create a safe, communal space for all kinds of artists, art lovers, and anyone who is just curious about what we do; to come together and express our creative sides and to learn a little more about each other. We believe in unlocking the creative within each and every one of us, and offer a wide range of free public events, open air concerts (during the warmer months), and some of our studios even offer a variety of classes for various ages and skill sets. Whether you’re interested in learning "how it's made", wanting to purchase something to decorate your home or office space, or wanting to learn a new hobby or skill, The Chicken Farm Art Center is here to welcome you into the fold.
Our Artistic Values
A Home for Artists
We believe every artist needs space in which to create, and that space should inspire and support their creative process. We also understand how important it is for the place to have just the right environment, and that is what we strive to provide at The Chicken Farm Art Center. If you’re looking for a place that nurtures your artistic journey, as a maker or patron, look no further: we’re here and we can’t wait to meet you!
