Saddle Up & Write reception @ Chisholm Trail Heritage Center & Garis Gallery of the American West

//www.facebook.com/events/317513792242879/

Join us 1:30 p.m. Sunday, April 28 for a reception celebrating young writers and the spirit of creativity at the Chisholm Trail Heritage Center & Garis Gallery of the American West.

Saddle Up & Write is a creative writing experience hosted by the Chisholm Trail Heritage Center, funded by the Oklahoma Arts Council and CTHC members. It is taught by Dr. Nathan Brown, former Oklahoma Poet Laureate.

Now in its ninth year, exceptional sixth grade writers from Duncan, Empire and Marlow use the Garis Gallery of the American West, CTHC temporary exhibits and their own lives as inspiration to create poetry or prose. Students select their favorite works which are then compiled into an award-winning mini-magazine.

Readings and refreshments – all are welcome to attend.

Each student receives a published booklet of their selection.

Guests should arrive before the reception begins at 1:30.

Please see our NOTES blog on Facebook for the complete article and names of students who participated.

Our creative writing program was made possible through funding by the Oklahoma Arts Council and Chisholm Trail Heritage Center members. If you aren’t a member but would like to become one, please give us a call today! 580-252-6692

Jul 4 – Sep 22 all-day
A Texas State of Mind - art of Larry G. Lemons @ Chisholm Trail Heritage Center & Garis Gallery of the American West

A Texas State of Mind, featuring the art of Larry G. Lemons of Nocona, TX, exhibit will open July 4 – Sept. 22, 2019, at the Chisholm Trail Heritage Center in Duncan, OK.

A meet the artist reception will be 3:30 – 6:30 p.m. Thursday, July 11, at the Heritage Center.

As author John Steinbeck said, “Texas is a state of mind. Texas is an obsession. Above all, Texas is a nation in every sense of the word.” Lemons created his brand around that quote.

“The icons of Texas and the great southwest make up my artistic arsenal,” Lemons said. “I have taken colorful and iconic images and wrapped them in a package that I call ‘A Texas State of Mind.’ If you look closely, you will see such universal themes as family values, patriotism, faith, humor, nostalgia and maybe more.”

Be sure to like our Facebook event on this show for more information.

The Chisholm Trail Heritage Center is open daily, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Saturday; 1–5 p.m. Sunday. For information, call (580) 252-6692.
