Frank Reaugh – Landscapes of Texas and the American West

IMG_6599

Frank Reaugh led a very interesting life.  His passion was documenting the Southwest by using pastels and paint.  The exhibit at the Harry Ransom Center had several of his art pieces on display.  Just imagine getting the chance to travel with him and watch his plein air process of painting the countryside and animals in the late 1800s and early 1900s.

Alice

My visit to the Harry Ransom Center was to see the Alice in Wonderland Exhibit.  It was full of wonderful things.  There was art, books, games, records, films, photos and other things of interest.  They told the story from when Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (Lewis Carroll) first dreamed up the concept, all the way to works of present day artists.  The exhibit is there until July 6, so check it out if you get the opportunity.
