Texas artist crosses the Red River for summer show at Oklahoma’s Chisholm Trail Heritage Center
DUNCAN, Okla. – A Texas State of Mind, featuring the art of Larry G. Lemons of Nocona, TX, exhibit will open July 4 – Sept. 22, 2019, at the Chisholm Trail Heritage Center in Duncan, OK.
A meet the artist reception will be 3:30 - 6:30 p.m. Thursday, July 11, at the Heritage Center.
As author John Steinbeck said, “Texas is a state of mind. Texas is an obsession. Above all, Texas is a nation in every sense of the word.” That quote is something Lemons proudly displays on his artist’s website, and it’s been his brand for many years.
“The icons of Texas and the great southwest make up my artistic arsenal,” Lemons said. “I have taken colorful and iconic images and wrapped them in a package that I call ‘A Texas State of Mind.’ If you look closely, you will see such universal themes as family values, patriotism, faith, humor, nostalgia and maybe more.”
Lemons and his wife Donna Rose, own and operate a gallery in Nocona.
Visitors to the Heritage Center on the National Day of the Cowboy celebration, July 27, will also have a chance to see “A Texas State of Mind.”
