Western flair

Greg Kelsey’s bronze sculpture “Surly & Set in Their Ways” is on loan by a local family for the Western Art exhibit. The show will be on display through Sunday at the Duarango Arts Center for the Durango Cowboy Poetry Gathering.
This year’s poster was designed by Oklahoma artist Mikel Donahue. Toh-Atin Gallery will host a reception for Donahue from 5-7 p.m. Saturday and autographed prints of the poster will be available for purchase.
A Navajo textile, or Yeibichai, dating back to the 1930s, is on display at the Durango Arts Center, along with other pieces on loan from the Friends of the Durango Cowboy Poetry Gathering. Exhibit director Mary Puller said as many as a dozen La Plata County families lent artwork to the DAC to commemorate the 23rd annual Durango Cowboy Poetry Gathering. The exhibit will be on display through Sunday.
“Monsoon,” an oil-on-canvas work by Dan Mieduch, is on loan to the Durango Arts Center for the Western Art exhibit. “This show is a museum caliber show,” said Mary Puller, exhibit director. “I would love every resident of Durango to see this.”
