The Live Art Show will run from 6:30pm – 10:00pm in the Magnolia Room of the Southfork Hotel. You will be able to watch artists create great art work for sale with all proceeds donated to the Texas Scottish Rite Hospital For Children. This year’s Live Art Show theme is “The 70s/80s Retro Jam!” Artists will create original pieces – borrowing flavours from the pop culture of the 1970s-1980 era.
Grab your favourite drink at the Cattlemen’s Bar next to the Magnolia Room and enjoy the musical entertainment of DJ Mattrix as he spins & mixes tunes from the 70s & 80s.
The Live Art Show is open to the public and free to attend. We do ask, but not require, donations of any amount to attend the show. All donations will be added to the proceeds of the sold art and donated to the Texs Scottish Rite Hospital For Children.
