Ends Sunday, March 24
Because of artists at the turn of the 20th century like Edgar Payne, the American West became a land enchanted of tenacious villains, steely lawmen, mystical native peoples and fearsome predators roaming the rugged beauty of mountains, rivers and deserts. The Missouri-born Impressionist painter made anyone observing his work an explorer. Visitors to Gilcrease Museum, 1400 N. Gilcrease Museum Road, can see his works in the exhibit Edgar Payne: The Scenic Journey, which closes after Sunday, March 24. This retrospective look at the plein air artist’s career features nearly 100 paintings and drawings, which all will be packed and shipped to the collection's next exhibition after this weekend. Museum admission is $5-$8, and hours are 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesday-Sunday. Read more at gilcrease.utulsa.edu.
