“Painted Ladies, Watercolors of Friendship” – featuring the art of Lou Baggett, Glenna Pace, Barb Nelson and the late Jean Rich, will be on display, Jan. 9 – Feb. 27, 2020, at the Chisholm Trail Heritage Center in Duncan, OK. Watercolors, collaborations, pastels and more will be on display, created by these women during nearly a decade of friendship. They met weekly to paint, until the death of Rich in 2017. They still continue to create art, participate in workshops and show their work. More details and a reception to be announced later.
“Looking Through Indian Eyes” will feature the art of Brent Learned, who is a member of the Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes of Oklahoma. The show is April 2 – June 30, 2020, at the Chisholm Trail Heritage Center in Duncan, OK.
Learned, an Oklahoma City artist, wants people to realize after seeing his art that Native Americans still exist and they have stories to tell. He uses bold colors to tell his stories through paintings. Learn more about his work in this PBS News Hour article: https://to.pbs.org/2OtHMJF
