Chisholm Trail Heritage Center to feature lady artist’s group (OKLA)

DUNCAN — Eight women from around the state of Oklahoma, known collectively as Oklahoma Lady Artist or OKLA, are bringing their art this month to The Chisholm Trail Heritage Center for a special exhibit, “Visions of Oklahoma.”

This dynamic group of women, Sandy Ingram of Asher; Patsy Lane, Konawa; Christine Verner, McAlester; Burneta Venosdel, Tahlequah; Storm Strickland, Ada; Helen Howerton, Tulsa; and Freda de Odis Flatt and Skip Thompson, both of Sulphur, have a variety of art from bronze sculptures to wildlife paintings.

Awards and exhibits include some of the finest shows and most prestigious museums and galleries, including such places as the Gilcrease in Tulsa and the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library & Museum in Simi Valley, Calif.

One artist, Strickland-Thompson, has also studied under Duncan’s own Gay Faulkenberry.

For the Heritage Center’s exhibit, their work will highlight the Chisholm Trail and this region of the state.

A reception will be held 2-5 p.m. Nov. 17, at CTHC, to kick off the show, which will be up until Dec. 15.

For more information, contact Andy Couch, CTHC Association Curator and Programs Coordinator, or Stacy Cramer Moore, CTHC Executive Director, at 580-252-6692.

Should the date for The World's Largest Garage Sale be changed from the third weekend in July to sometime in October to take advantage of cooler weather like we had this past weekend?

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
Yes. More shoppers would come during nice fall weather.
Either time is fine.
