Artist Lori Griffin, of Alpine, could be considered a doctor of junk and loves to tell a story thru art. Re- purposing old window frames, is just one creative and unique way she keeps "stuff" from being sent off to the landfill. She uses virtually any type of voice, and she loves to share the story behind the art. The concept of "uncycling" materials can be challenging but provides original "one of a kind" art pieces. In her show "ANEW" a collection of old windows, frames, and old wood pieces are used to make functional art.
These unique pieces will be featured March 3-16 at Earth and Fire Imports/Gallery in downtown Terlingua ghosttown. Please join us for an opening reception from 4-7pm, Monday March 3rd.
The 4th Annual Scrabble Tournament was cancelled last Saturday because of Glen's Memorial. It will now take place on Thursday 27th February.

The Alpine Public Library’s next Travel Talk will take place on Friday, February 28 at 7 pm in the library.

Trevor Hickle will be hosting the first one, the rest of you get in line! See you there.
Also, the smash hit event, Voices from Both Sides, is happening again Sunday, May 11th, at the Lajitas Crossing. Area hotels are running deals and many are making every effort to fill up this town so we can all dance together on the shores of the beautiful Rio Grande.
