Museum After Dark: Home on the Range, an evening with artist Dallas Mayer
July 23, 6 p.m.–8 p.m.
On Saturday, July 23, from 6 to 8 p.m., exhibiting artist Dallas Mayer will have a painting demonstration in the museum as a part of her Home on the Range: Dallas Mayer Art Show on exhibit this summer at the Cherokee Strip Regional Heritage Center (CSRHC).
Mayer will introduce her work on display at the CSRHC and provide insights into her process as an artist. She will also be holding a live painting demonstration showcasing her approach and style. In this special evening program, Mayer will lead a discussion on the subject matter of western landscapes that most inspires her work. The artist’s pastel, watercolor, and oil works will be available to purchase.
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. Dallas Mayer has developed her own unique style as a painter and has discovered a healthy art/life balance in the last ten years, exploring the joys of traveling around the region painting en plein air (in the open air).
The exhibit will remain open until July 30, 2022.
Mayer’s work is known throughout the region and has been shown at the Oklahoma State Capitol as well as in art centers, galleries, and museums across the United States.
