Muleshoe Art Association traveled to Amarillo on Tuesday, January 7th for their monthly meeting. The first stop was a visit to the American Quarter Horse Hall of Fame and Museum located on East I-40 and Quarter Horse Avenue in Amarillo. President Ann Johnson conducted a short business meeting before members watched a short video about the horses. The group toured the building and all its exhibits which showcased American Quarter horses as well as horses popular in other countries. The history of the quarter horse was also juxtaposed with American and World history as the breed developed over the years. Notable quarter horse bloodlines were displayed, along with trophies, riding tack, horse care, and a racing starting gate. Horse artwork by students, ages 10 to 18, was on display as well. Members then drove to historic 6th Street, which follows the original Route 66, for lunch at Braceros Grill and visited the Lile Art Gallery, also on 6th Street, owned by Bob Lile, longtime friend of art association member Mike Jones. After an interesting visit at the gallery, members headed home. The next meeting will be February 4th at 2:00 at the Santa Fe Depot in the Muleshoe Heritage Center. Interested visitors and prospective members are invited to attend.
