Doylene Land Art Show and Sale – Raw 1899

Raw 1899 will be hosting artwork by Doylene Land with a champagne reception beginning at 4 p.m. on August 4th.

Land’s artwork is inspired by the wide open spaces in West Texas.

“The area’s desert environment, vast sky, and passing clouds have mesmerized me since childhood,” she says. “I find the ephemeral cloud formations often imitate features in the landscape and, at times, the colors of the sky unfathomable. I am particularly captivated by the flat, stark horizon.”

Land received her Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Art Education and Master of Fine Arts Degree in Education before working with blind individuals in multiple capacities for 20 years.

Raw 1899 is open Wednesday through Saturday from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m.
