Jim Weaver Exhibit at the Heritage Center
Jim Weaver, a leathercraft artist from Edmond, Oklahoma, created new leather hide work depicting life along the Chisholm trail for his exhibit at the Chisholm Trail Heritage Center. Weaver said the scene of his latest work begins in San Antonio and ends at the railroad stockyards in Abilene, Kansas. It depicts the extreme weather conditions faced along the trail, topography, and more.
Weaver completed extensive research for this project and spent almost a year perfecting this vivid story of life along the Chisholm Trail. Weaver’s research included visual and written references of the 1870’s cattle drives, drovers’ journals, and geography. Weaver’s exhibit highlights his new pieces as well as a variety of additional works.
Weaver’s exhibit will be on display from July 2 to Sept. 28. To learn more about Jim Weaver and his art, visit his website.
Chisholm Trail Heritage Center is open five days a week, Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
