Cherokee Strip Regional Heritage Center to Open “Home on the Range” Art Exhibit
ENID, Okla. — On Tuesday, June 28, 2022, a new exhibit titled “Home on the Range: Dallas Mayer Art Show” will open at the Cherokee Strip Regional Heritage Center, featuring the work of Oklahoma artist Dallas Mayer.
The self-named “Ranch Lady” paints figures from everyday life, inviting viewers to experience her heartfelt connections to the animals and people of the Great Plains. With painterly, soft brushstrokes and deep, saturated hues, her paintings convey a lightness of spirit. Mayer has developed her own unique style as a painter and has discovered a healthy art/life balance in the last 10 years, exploring the joys of traveling around the region and painting in plein air.
Mayer's work is known throughout the region and has shown at the Oklahoma State Capitol as well as art centers, galleries and museums across the United States. The exhibit will remain open until July 30, 2022.
The Cherokee Strip Regional Heritage Center is located at 507 S. Fourth St. in Enid. For more information, please call 580-237-1907 or visit www.csrhc.org.
