NMJC Museum to Host New Works by Curtis Fort & Danny Stevens
10/26/2007 10:37:07 a.m. - Hobbs, NM. The Western Heritage Museum & Lea County Cowboy Hall of Fame will present Two Views of Life on the Llano, an exhibit featuring new work from Western bronze sculptor Curtis Fort and Western photographer Danny Stevens. The exhibit will be on display October 30 - November 3.
Fort, who was born and raised on a ranch in Tatum, New Mexico, began experimenting with clay in college. He continued to develop those skills after graduation while working as a cowboy on ranches in New Mexico and Texas. While ranching, Smithsonian Magazine featured Fort in an article. Little did Fort know this event would lead to a 30-year career as a sculpture artist of the Western culture.
Known for his ability to capture the true essence of life on the plains of New Mexico, Stevens has been an accomplished photographer for over 25 years. He takes his camera to work every day, carrying a deep passion for capturing the way of life he lives daily. Stevens' photos reflect a true understanding of the beauty and excitement of his subject matter.
Works of both Fort and Stevens will be available for purchase.
The Western Heritage Museum and Lea County Cowboy Hall of Fame is open Tuesday through Saturday, 10 am - 5 pm. For more information, call 392.6730.
