Art, artifact exhibition next month at Heritage Center

In March, Cherokee Strip Regional Heritage Center will host its first show of fine art and custom cowboy gear, “Trappings of the Cherokee Strip.”

To usher in the show, the February Brown Bag Lunch & Learn will feature Don Reeves, curator of Cowboy Culture of the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum. He will speak on “Cowboy Culture: Art and the Contemporary Cowboy.”

The presentation will explore how a variety of art forms are used by contemporary cowboys to preserve and celebrate their culture. The presentation is free to the public and will be held at noon Wednesday in the Humphrey Heritage Village Church.

Reeves has been on the curatorial staff of the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum since 1979. During the recent museum expansion he curated the Children’s Cowboy Corral, American Cowboy and Western Performers galleries. Reeves has worked with the Traditional Cowboy Arts Association since its inception in 1998 and has curated its annual exhibitions. Author of numerous exhibition publications and magazine articles, he also has participated in a host of television and documentary film projects.

“Trappings of the Cherokee Strip” will open to the public March 2 and remain open through March 31. This invitational show will feature accomplished artists and craftsmen from across the state.

Heritage Center guests will enjoy a collection of fine art and handmade gear, including the works of painters, sculptors, photographers, saddle and boot makers, silversmiths, potters and makers of western furniture.

Each participating artist will exhibit three works of art or gear. All works are for purchase deliverable following the close of the show.
