Baker Arts Center has decided to streamline its collection, providing the public with a chance to own a unique piece of local history.
“From Our Collection to Yours” sale will run from April 18 to 24, and the funds raised will help in the purchase of new art to update the center’s collection.
The public is encouraged to stop by during regular business hours to view items for sale and make an investment in local art. The paintings each have a price listed on the nameplate to the side. Once a piece is purchased, a colored sticker will be added to the price tag to show it is no longer available.
Approximately 100 pieces will be displayed for sale. Several are by instructor Dord Fitz and others by his workshop students, including Kay Horn and Dorothy Penny. Also in the collection to be sold are many pieces by Lindagrace Stephens, a previous art teacher of Hugoton.
In the list of pieces to be sold are:
“Wild Horses” by Dord Fitz
“Smoggy City” by Kay Horn
“Eternal Now” by Cecelia Howard
“St. Elmo Ghost Town” by Kay Horn
“Oklahoma Farm” by Dord Fitz
“Acturian Dialogue II The Golden Circle” by Dord Fitz
“Watercolor Boats” by Lindagrace Stephens
“Power” by Kay Horn
“Chinese Warrior” by Lindagrace Stephens
“First Birthday (Black)” by Lindagrace Stephens
These are just a few of the items, and the public is invited to stop by and see the works for themselves.
