The Long Hard Ride: A Commemoration of the Chisholm Trail
Jul 2 @ 10:00 am – Sep 28 @ 5:00 pm

“The Long Hard Ride: A Commemoration of the Chisholm Trail” is an installation exhibition by Oklahoma leather artist, Jim Weaver. On display July 2 – Sept. 28, 2020 at the Chisholm Trail Heritage Center, 1000 Chisholm Trail Pkwy, Duncan, OK 73533

Weaver’s exhibit will feature new work, with nearly a dozen large-scale leather hides displayed in the Chisholm Trail Heritage Center’s main exhibit room. Extensive research by the artist includes visual and written references of the 1870s cattle drives, drovers’ journals and geography. Using his leather craft skills, Weaver tells a story of history, and how humans are dependent upon the earth.

“Geographically, the scene will begin in San Antonio and end at the railroad stockyards in Abilene, Kansas,” Weaver said. Exhibit details will include the extreme weather conditions faced along the trail, a focus on topography, and more. His work has been featured in The Paseo Arts District, Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition Gallery, the Robert S. Kerr Environmental Research Laboratory in Ada since 2016 as part of its 50th anniversary, and most recently in France, among numerous other places. The Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition provided Weaver with a funding grant for this exhibit.  To learn more about Weaver, visit his website.
