Pearce exhibit proves popular

Corsicana — The opening events may be over, but the “A New Look at the West! Show and Sale” is still on exhibit at the Pearce Museum through Oct. 18. While all the works are available for sale, this is also a great opportunity to just see top-notch traditional and contemporary Western Art, with 43 artists from California to Maine, and many states in between, submitted work for this show.  

Karen Cooper’s works grace the front room of the gallery. A pastel artist, Cooper is well known for action and movement in her paintings, as well as the drama of the negative space that is her signature.

Don Weller’s loosely flowing watercolors capture the detailed beauty of the natural world of Western America, from craggy hills of rock to wide, green ranch lands. Weller is concerned with the subject and sense of the story he’s telling with his brush, but he also cares about interesting shapes, texture, pattern, and the abstract quality of the composition.

Around the corner from Weller are Albino Hinojosa’s works.  A Louisiana artist, his hyper-realistic paintings reflect everyday items as the subject matter.  Hinojosa says that he is not simply painting what he sees but how he feels about objects and places.

Sharon Marqardt’s work truly exemplifies A New Look at the West! She prefers to paint animals, mostly those found on the ranch, but paints them bright, beautiful, bold colors. Her work is described as “happy.”

Another show favorite is Sandra Stevens’ longhorns in the back gallery.

To see the online catalog and participating artists, and ticket information go to www.anewlookatthewest.com or www.pearcemuseum.com.  

For more information on the show and sale, contact Holly Wait, director, at 903-875-7438.
