The touring exhibit Allen True’s West opens next at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum, 1700 NE 63rd Street in Oklahoma City, OK,  on February 4 and runs through May 15, 2011. It is the last venue for this show (due to the bankruptcy of the organization handling the tour). There is a preview reception on Thursday, February 3, from 6 – 8 pm.

Julie Anderies, the primary coordinator and researcher for the three original exhibits of True’s work in Denver (from which works were culled for the tour), will give a presentation on Tuesday, February 15, from 6:30 to 8:30 pm at the Museum.

On Monday, March 7, Victoria Tupper Kirby will give an illustrated talk about her grandfather’s life and work to the Museum’s docents, followed by a book signing in the Museum store from 11 am to 12:30 pm.  Victoria will also sign copies of the biography she co-wrote with her mother Jere True, Allen Tupper True: An American Artist, at the local independent Full Circle Bookstore, 50 Penn Place, 1900 NW Expressway, on Tuesday, March 8 from 6 to 7:30 pm.

An excellent article about Allen True written by Colorado-based Corinne Brown has just been published in the Winter 2010 issue of Persimmon Hill, a publication of the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum. Single copies are available for $11.00, including postage from the Circulation Department at 1700 N. E. 63rd Street, Oklahoma City, OK 73111, or call (405) 478-2250, extension 251.
