Outdoor Landscape Painting in the Footsteps of Georgia O’Keeffe @ Ghost Ranch
Mar 24 @ 6:00 pm – Mar 30 @ 12:00 pm

Painting in the areas where O’Keeffe painted, be guided by O’Keeffe’s quote: “A Painting is good if it is good in the abstract sense.” Our emphasis will be on simplifying the landscape into beautiful design and correct color values. We will look at O’Keeffe’s life and artistic process. Instructor Michelle Chrisman is a graduate of The School of Visual Arts in New York City and she studied painting at the Art Student’s Leagues of New York City and Denver. Michelle has been an outdoor “Plein Air” Landscape Painter in the Taos and Abiquiu / Ghost Ranch areas for many years. She was featured in the 2008 & 2015 issues of “Southwest Art Magazine” as a noted Plein Air Painter of Northern New Mexico and the West.

Doll Exhibit @ The Sherman Museum
Mar 27 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm

The 95 dolls on display from our collections are mostly educational in nature, and many are handmade.

32 of the dolls were donated by LuAnn Yoast and were made or collected by her mother, Lucile Hightower for use at Forest Avenue Baptist Church for mission trainings and Bible studies.

37 of the dolls were donated by Jefferson School and were used in the 1970s to teach about ethnic clothing. All of the dolls represent countries, and each has a label designating the country of origin.

3 dolls are very old (two are dated to pre-1895 and one is dated 1901 by family records) and were donated by prominent Sherman families.

We have very little information on the remaining 23 dolls on display and I would love for members of the community to come look at these dolls and talk to Betsy Deiterman, Museum Director, if they recognize them! We would like to be able to tell their stories accurately.
