Cannupa Hanksa Luger’s “Reunion” will be on display at the Amarillo Museum of Art , 2200 S. Van Buren St., through Dec. 31.
“Reunion” is a solo exhibition at the Amarillo Museum of Art presented by multi-disciplinary artist Cannupa Hanska Luger. Utilizing performance, video, ceramics and monumental sculptural installation to tell a story about planetary interconnectivity, Luger urgently implores audiences towards relational repair — with each other, with more-than-human relatives and with the land. Traveling both backwards through history and forwards into the future, the work challenges and empowers humans to develop deeper kinship with the natural world.
In the new large-scale installation Transmutation, calcium carbonate and bone-black pigments cascade from lifesize glass Buffalo skulls acknowledging the annihilation of the American Bison, a species lost a hundred years ago and with lasting effects in the 21st century.
This exhibition also premiers the new regalia and video work, Midéegaadi, from Luger’s speculative fiction series, Future Ancestral Technologies. This ongoing project looks to customary practices in order to move culture forward. It actively incorporates science fiction theory, storytelling, Indigenous technologies, contemporary materials and the detritus of capitalism to present time-bending landscapes and to prototype new myths.
In addition to these new works, the artist presents recent large scale installation pieces and video works.
The museum is open 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., Wednesday through Saturday; and 1-5 p.m. on Sundays. Admission is free.

Now celebrating 20 years of female empowerment through hilarious musical comedy, “Menopause The Musical” has evolved as a “grassroots” movement of women who deal with life adjustments after 40 by embracing each other and the road ahead. Set in a department store, four women meet while shopping for a black lace bra at a lingerie sale. After noticing similarities among one another, the cast jokes about their woeful hot flashes, mood swings, wrinkles, weight gain and much more.

Randall King and Kevin Fowler make their return to the Panhandle for Party in the Panhandle at 8:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 21, for an outdoor show at Starlight Ranch.
With a sound steeped in the timeless beauty of the endless plains of West Texas, both gritty and graceful at the same time, King creates a sound like no other with his modern traditionalist take on country music. He grew up singing in the back of a ‘93 Chevy Suburban, mimicking the pure-country vocals of stars like Keith Whitley, George Strait, Alan Jackson and John Anderson and over the years became drawn to the electrifying energy of modern stars like Eric Church, Dierks Bentley and Jason Aldean. With over 120+ million career streams to his name, Randall King is looking to the anywhere-and-everywhere future with music that captures the essence of a Western poet who’s never been afraid to be himself.
Texas country mainstay Fowler has a found way to live the dream – by earning it. It’s never been an easy or short road, but it’s a path he wouldn’t trade and has positioned him as one of the most consistent artists, in any genre, of the last two decades. Kevin Fowler rolled out his long-awaited studio album, “Barstool Stories”, in August of 2019. “Barstool Stories” confirms the dream Fowler keeps living – repeatedly making great music, having a lot of fun doing it and inviting the audience to do the same and this album proudly claims its place as his current “snapshot in time.”
Tickets for this concert range from $25 to $65 (plus taxes and fees) depending on VIP features.

Eleven-time Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Jamey Johnson is scheduled to perform at 8 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 27, at the Amarillo Civic Center.
Johnson is one of only a few people in the history of country music to win two Song of the Year Awards from both the CMA and ACMs. His 2008 album, “That Lonesome Song”, was certified platinum for 1 million in sales, and his 2010 ambitious double album, The Guitar Song, received a gold certification.
In addition, he won two Song of the Year Trophies, for “Give It Away” and “In Color,” both from the Academy of Country Music and the Country Music Association.
In 2012, the Alabama native released his fifth studio album, a tribute project to late songwriter Hank Cochran. The Grammy-nominated “Living for a Song: A Tribute to Hank Cochran” paired him with Willie Nelson, Alison Krauss, Emmylou Harris, Ray Price, Elvis Costello, George Strait, Vince Gill and Merle Haggard.
In 2013, the Nashville Scene’s 13th annual Country Music Critics’ Poll named it the year’s best album. (Two years earlier, the same poll named Johnson’s The Guitar Song as the year’s best album, and Johnson himself as best male vocalist, best songwriter and artist of the year.)
Tickets for this concert range from $45 to $65 (plus taxes and fees) depending on seating.

Cinemark Hollywood 16 and XD, 9100 Canyon Drive, will host a double feature of “Creature from the Black Lagoon” (1954) and “Phantom of the Opera” (1943) at 1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 29.
Perfectly blending Universal’s classic monster heritage with the science-fiction explosion of the 1950s, “Creature from the Black Lagoon” tells the mythical story of a dangerous half-human, half-fish creature lurking in the depths of the Amazon.
After discovering a unique prehistoric claw fossil on an expedition deep in the jungle, scientists investigate its origins which lead them directly to a mysterious creature. Led by ichthyologist David Reed (Richard Carlson), the men try to capture the monster who has become obsessed with David’s assistant, Kay (Julia Adams). Originally released in 3D, this thrilling adventure inspired sequels, TV series and more that continue to strengthen the monster’s legacy to this day.
One of the most popular stories of all time, Gaston Leroux’s “Phantom of the Opera” is the legendary horror tale starring Claude Rains as the masked phantom of the Paris Opera House. Following a tragic accident that leaves him disfigured, crazed composer Erique Claudin transforms into a masked phantom who schemes to make beautiful young soprano Christine Dubois (Susanna Foster) the star of the opera and wreak revenge on those who stole his music.
A heroic baritone (Nelson Eddy) tries to win the affections of Christine as he tracks down the disfigured “monster” who has begun murdering those who resist his mad demands. Inspired by the original 1925 silent version, this lavish Technicolor production remains one of the most unforgettable adaptations ever to be filmed.
Tickets for this special double feature are $12.45 and available online in advance at
