National Ranching Heritage Center to host Western Art and Gear Show

LUBBOCK, Texas -

(Press release)

Western art and gear collectors will have an opportunity to purchase new art pieces and meet the artists June 2 at the Fifth Annual Summer Stampede Western Art and Gear Show from 6 to 11 p.m. at the National Ranching Heritage Center (NRHC) at Texas Tech University.

Sponsored by Capital Farm Credit, the annual event will include more than 100 pieces of art by 35 Western artists and craftsmen. Summer Stampede provides a unique mix of art that combines both Western paintings and gear, including spurs, stirrups, bits, belt buckles, knives and jewelry.

The art sale will begin at 6 p.m. and continue throughout the evening as guests dine on the patio and dance to the Western music of Landon Dodd and the Dancehall Drifters.

Dr. Scott White, NRHC director of collections, exhibits and research, said the Summer Stampede art and gear sale “is unique for this part of the country.” The NRHC takes a lower commission than most galleries and doesn’t require a bidding process. Buyers can meet the artist, pay the posted price and take the artwork home that day. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the educational and restoration programs of the NRHC.

Artists scheduled to exhibit their work include Russell Yates, Baru Forell, Edgar Sotelo, Peter Robbins, David Griffin, Tyler Crow, Bob Moline, Doug Clark, Wilson Capron, Mike Capron, Mary Baxter, Billy Klapper, Brian Asher, Wayne Baize, Mary Ross Buchholz, Jason Scull, Garland Weeks, Michael Tittor, Stewart Williamson, Herman Walker, Toni Arnett, Jayson Jones, JaNeil Anderson, Kim Mackey, Jan Mapes, Emily McCartney, Billy Albin, Beau Compton, Buddy Knight, Dustin Payne, Tanner Crow, Rex Crawford, Matt Humphreys, Rosie Sandifer and Cotton Elliott.

Limited tickets are available for Summer Stampede and can be purchased at (806) 834-0469 or online at http://ranchingheritage.org/stampede. The cost is $75 for Ranching Heritage Association members, $100 for the general public, and $1,000 for a reserved table for eight on the open patio. Deadline for ticket purchase is Friday, May 25.

    Mentorship program helps prevent, combat bullying

    While bullying is mainly prevalent in middle school or high school, It is never too early to start addressing it with kids. For nine years, Tomorrow's Leaders has been mentoring a group of fifth graders throughout Lubbock ISD.
