From Jim Franklin:
Thank you to those who attended Linda’s funeral, and the thoughts
and prayers we received from all of you. Linda enjoyed attending our OSS
featured in a 2/3-page article in the June 1 Oklahoman
as artist of the month at 50 Penn Place Gallery.
Larsen and Harold Holden will be
having an artist talk at the Oklahoma Hall of Fame-Gaylord Pickens Museum July
27 at 6 p.m. Everyone is welcome.
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.”
