Chisholm Trail Arts Council Gallery
810 W. Walnut, Duncan, OK
For more information, call (580) 252-4160. Open by appointment.
As it moves toward its 40th year, Chisholm Trail Arts Council offers a clear mission: “To provide accessible artistic programs that enhance the quality of life, encourage economic development and educate the people of Stephens County.”
At the turn of the 21st century, CTAC absorbed a concert series originally produced by Duncan Community Concerts and renamed it Live From the Center. Programming for Live From the Center blossomed, with six concerts between September and May, featuring performances by an eclectic sampling of talent from around the globe.
Leslie Powell Gallery
620 SW D Ave., Lawton, OK
For more information, call (580) 357-9526.
Gallery Hours: Monday-Friday, noon to 4:00 p.m.
The Foundation initially occupied the second floor of the Little Chapel of Lawton, where it conducted monthly art exhibits and functions until April 2000. In addition to the arts exhibits, the Leslie Powell Foundation solicits requests from the fine art community for financial needs and has in the past made financial grants for $15,000 to $20,000 annually. The gallery moved to its current location of 620 SW D Avenue in April 2000.
Prior to that move, it was ascertained that the Leslie Powell Program had out-grown the space available at the Little Chapel of Lawton. The Foundation wanted to keep the Gallery in the downtown area and wanted to renovate an existing structure, and keeping the building’s 1920 “art deco” flavor.
Leslie Powell was a painter and the only child of a local pharmacist who was an original stockholder in the Security Bank and Trust.
