Lots of news from Burneta Venosdel: “Artists from three states participated in a Plein Air painting session at Red Fern in Tahlequah, on June 15-17 the event was sponsored by the Art Council of Tahlequah. Dick and I hosted a Meet and Greet at our Ranch 20 miles north of town and hosted three artists for the event.  I was fortunate enough to win both first and second places with my paintings in the paper support category.  Great event with OSS member Britt Morgan participating.  My sculpture ‘Spirit Seeker’ won ‘Plainsman Award’ at the end of the APA Signature Show in Pawhuska last month at the Historic Ole #1 Firehouse Art Center, hosted by Preserving Arts in the Osage. The 4-day opening event was attended by artists from across the country.  Two sculptures, ‘Prairie Treasures’ and 'Sonoran Standoff,’ were juried into the Annual American Plains Artists 32nd Juried Exhibition Show in Las Cruces, to be held at the New Mexico Farm and Ranch Historic Museum, August 3 -November 5th.”
