Curator's Note:

You will find more cattle than people in the Texas Panhandle, more wind than is necessary, and more art than you might think. Amarillo and its surrounding communities share a dedication to the arts in its many varieties: music, dance, visual art and the written word.


artZONE, produced by KACV-TV in Amarillo, captures art happening all over West Texas as it happens here at home.


It is KACV’s goal to provide a sample of the abundance of educational, accessible and beautiful art in our part of the world.

Exhibition Playlist

Wolfe

Exhibition playlist 5 of 6 ‹ previous | next ›

In graduate school, Donald Mace Williams, ever fascinated by the narrative poem Beowulf, chose it as his dissertation topic. Years later, the award-winning poet and author, still bitten by Beowulf, retells the story with a new time and place and for a much different audience. “Wolfe” takes place at a late 19th century ranch on the rim of Palo Duro Canyon and the characters represent the understated courage and humility of the American cowboy.
