MEAN WOMAN GRILL
RED DIRT RANGERS with RANDY CROUCH
7:00 PM
2103 Marsha Sharp Freeway
Free
www.meanwomangrill.com

Look up the meaning of Red Dirt Country in Wikipedia or many other sources and the band, Red Dirt Rangers will be prominent. They are basically founding members of the genre. No doubt this should not be a free concert but it is. This is a major band that typically plays large stages in front of thousands. Red Dirt music grew up in a specific place in a specific town. The town is Stillwater, home of Oklahoma State University. The place was a two-story, five-bedroom, funky old place called the Farm-for two decades the epicenter of what would come to be called the Red Dirt scene. The act that represents Red Dirt? You couldn’t do any better than the Red Dirt Rangers, who’ve been carrying the banner for Red Dirt music since the late 1980s. And years before the band existed, Ben Han, John Cooper, and Brad Piccolo became an integral part of the Farm’s musical brotherhood, trading songs and licks with the likes of Jimmy LaFave, Tom Skinner, and Bob Childers-and, later, with such white-hot acts as Cross Canadian Ragweed, Jason Boland and the Stragglers and Stoney LaRue. Randy Crouch's music has been a foundation for Oklahoma's Red Dirt music, having been one of the earliest musicians of Red Dirt's epicenter - The Farm - located in Stillwater, Oklahoma.[6] John Cooper, of the Red Dirt Rangers band, said that the camaraderie of the protests was central to the spirit that help form the Red Dirt movement. Crouch has been nominated for over twenty Oklahoma State Music Awards and in 2005 was inducted into the Oklahoma Music Awards Red Dirt Hall of Fame

This band that originates from LCU, professors I believe, made a good hit the first time they played the Grill during the Monday Night Jam, so they got their own gig. This is a fun time with classic & soft rock mostly from the 80s and 90s. The band consists of Michael Martin on bass, Jeff Cary who is lead singer and one of the guitarists, Tim Beyars as Lead guitarist, Andy Young doing vocals, drums, guitar and harmonica and Kregg Fehr on Keyboards, harmonica and tambourine. Don't miss a great concert! Otherwise, from reading their facebook page, we learn that they are big Tom Landry fans, they have a good sense of humor and that Kregg hates the word "genre."

The Christine DeVitt Exhibition Hall John Hitchcock, “Storms of War” “Re Tracing the Plains”.
June 5 – August 1, 2015  *ends Saturday*
“Storms of War” consists of works on paper. A multimedia installation of printed matter. The exhibition references the trauma of war and fragility of life. Artist John Hitchcock sets familiar images of U.S. military weaponry against unfamiliar mythological and hybrid creatures originating from the Wichita Mountains in western Oklahoma to allegorically explore the notion of assimilation and control.
About the artist: John Hitchcock uses the print medium with its long history of social and political commentary to explore relationships of community, land and culture. He is an artist and professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison where he teaches screenprinting, relief cut and installation art. He earned his MFA in printmaking and photography at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas, and received his BFA from Cameron University in Lawton, Oklahoma. Hitchcock has received numerous awards, including the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation Artistic Innovation and Collaboration grant, and has exhibited extensively nationally and internationally.

The Helen Devitt Jones Studio will feature Ken Dixon’s exhibit of eighteen months of studies and finished works that provide a window into the artist’s studio.
June 5 – August 1, 2015  *ends Saturday*
This group of works and objects is a window into my studio over the past eighteen months.
I opened a one-person exhibition at William Campbell Contemporary Art in November 2013 with a body of work that had been assembled over the previous twenty-four months; and, as I like to allow myself long periods of time in which I just let my mind/eyes go, December 2013 seemed like an appropriate time to “let go” and experiment.
This installation is a simple “recreation” of my studio walls. Works are generally hung in an arrangement which shows when they came into existence. Two older works (Order & Disorder --- Borrowed Parts” and Terrazzo/ Texas Falls) are included because they were living on the studio walls in December 2013.
It started with my intention to make another work which explored the collage border that appeared on Terrazzo/ Texas Falls. At the same time, I made a long paper chain in order to pile it up to photograph and reproduce selected “crops” of it. I imagined that these cropped shots might offer another interpretation (translation) of the waterfall in Terrazzo/ Texas Falls. From that point it became a stream of conscious “linkage” of one work to another, one experiment suggesting another version or suggesting a tangent of that version. Order and Disorder---Borrowed Parts became simply a handy “hanger” for the long paper chain I had made and wanted to preserve. But that arrangement, in itself, suggested keeping this combination of elements as an idea.
I am particularly aware of these influences that found their way into the work:
A group of drawing books garnered from the closing sale of Larry McMurtry’s bookshop in Archer City, Texas. These books contained:
An exhibition catalogue of Leonardo’s notebook drawings of moving water, clouds and fragments of script; and two books on Northern Renaissance drawing with many images of chiaroscuro drawing on toned papers, especially dark green and red.
A road trip north on Route 83 through land I had never seen --- the western mid-west to Mount Rushmore, the Badlands of South Dakota (and eastern Montana) to the Devils Tower and across Wyoming and the Santa Fe Trail along the Arkansas River in eastern Colorado.
My studio walls, where unexplored images and notes live, accompanied by units and fragments from older works that stare down at me from their random “storage” locations on the studio walls.
Some of the works in this installation may become a bridge to somewhere else and will get recycled. And some of these woks will surely end up with a title and will be shown in future venues. I may better figure this out after I first see the work outside the studio.

Future uses fiber arts, clay and mixed media to document geographical locations that have been transformative in her life.

Martin McDonald Gallery will feature Stefani Job Spears’ “Silver Linings” Her paintings explore the fractal possibilities found in nature.
July 3 – August 29, 2015

Once
I discovered a three-leaf clover with a diamond dewdrop resting on its surface, magnifying the webs of intricate cell work and reflecting tiny spectrums of color. I think I was in first grade and nonetheless remember trying desperately trying to save it. It had to be captured; it had to be preserved. Miraculously, it had the heat of the desert sun long enough to be treasured and recognized as "a thing of beauty." Its' life was tragically brief and beautiful. As my inspection of the world gained perspective I began to realize that reproducing nature, copying nature's sublime beauty was an impossibly futile effort. Nature has the remarkable ability to change each season, each day, each moment.
The works have developed from a penchant to explore the strangely paradoxical, symbiotic relationship between man and nature. This is reflected in the simultaneous uniting and fracturing of compositional elements. Color is the primary character in my prints, oil paintings and watercolors, leading me to explore the fractal possibilities found in nature.
When we look at a work of art, we see only ourselves; whatever we feel, whatever we believe is what we see before us.
My intention is not only to create "a thing of beauty, but a sensation, a recollection, a different perception, but a glimpse inside ourselves and souls.

ANARTICA-PIONEERING AMERICAN EXPLORATIONS OF THE FROZEN CONTINENT  January 30-December 20, 2015 
Main Gallery and Balcony

Battling roaring winds, freezing temperatures, and crevasses, F. Alton Wade, joined the Second Byrd Expedition to Antarctica in 1933. He was appointed lead geologist for the Eastern Sledge Party, a 77 day sled journey into the unknown of Marie Byrd Land.
In 1939, Wade, returned to the icy frontier as Senior Scientist for the United States Antarctic Service to plan and manage the expedition’s scientific program as well as command the cutting-edge Snow Cruiser, a mobile research lab equipped with an airplane on its roof. Wade came to Texas Tech University in 1954 serving as Chair of the Department of Geosciences and leading 6 Texas Tech Antarctic expeditions. Wade was also a member of the first group of professors to be awarded as a Horn Professor. In 1971, he created the Antarctic Research Center at the Museum of Texas Tech University to further advance the discoveries of the Texas Tech expeditions that are detailed in this year’s featured Horn Professor exhibition, “Antarctica – Pioneering American Explorations of the Frozen Continent,” a new exhibit running Jan. 30 – Dec. 20 at the Museum of Texas Tech University.
The exhibit highlights nearly 100 objects from the collections of the Museum of Texas Tech University, said Tabitha Schmidt, interim director for the Museum. Attendees can learn why it took 200 years before large sections of the Antarctic interior could be explored. Penguins, sled dogs, fossils of ancient animals, and a mummified seal tell the story of how this seemingly inhospitable landscape, 98 percent covered in snow and ice, has evolved and always teemed with life.
“Not only will you be able to trace the steps of Antarctic exploration, you can see how you would measure up to a life-sized cutout of an Emperor penguin, interact with games that test your knowledge of Antarctic exploration, learn about the Frozen Continent’s prehistoric tropical past, and see what parts of an actual exploration campsite would have looked like,” Schmidt said. “The exhibition also features a large mock glacier in the main gallery that contains a continuous mural depicting Antarctic scenery. These are experiences you will not want to miss.”

Peachtree Gallery, established in June 2013, is a small gallery located in the historic downtown Depot District of Lubbock, Texas.  The mission of our space is a dedication to creating a sense of welcome and invitation in a fine art gallery setting.  It is meant to be an establishment where both artist and collector feels represented, well cared for, and most importantly to our vision, a place in which both parties feel at home and understood.  Our dream is to be a space that both inspires and encourages understanding and growth in the Lubbock art community.
Currently on exhibition is local artist Dyan Newton.  Colorful, happy, inspiring - Dyan's work allows us to escape into a world of serenity and peace.

Local artist Allah Hillegass is a jack of all trades.  He is a welder, a veteran, an engineer, a farmer, a sustainability expert, and a woodworker.  He collects wood that would normally be discarded as scrap and gives it new life.  His work is defined by seeing potential in the forgotten and undesirable.

 The details:
Every Wednesday at 11AM
Anyone may attend!  The classes are geared towards all experience levels.
Our teachers are local yogis Lindsay Kerr and Jalie Kimbrough.
Taking inspiration from institutions like the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City and the Blanton Museum of Art in Austin, we are excited to offer a new way for us all to experience art.  We believe that art and yoga live together so beautifully and want to share that experience with each of you. 
 Elements Yoga Series
 In addition to Wednesday mornings, Lindsay Kerr will be hosting a four-week series on Monday evenings.  The series will be themed around the elements:  Earth, Wind, Fire, and Water.  It's going to be a great series!  The dates are:
Each class will begin at 6PM and last for one hour.  Because we want to share yoga with everyone, all of our classes are donation based.  We suggest $10, but feel free to give more or less as you are able.  Don't have a mat?  That's okay - we have mats here!

DR. SHERMAN VINOGRAD-MEDICAL SCIENCE DIRECTOR AT NASA
May 2014-September 2015
During the eighteen years that Dr. Vinograd served as NASA’s Director of Medical Science he led medical engineering and vehicle development research relating to manned space flight. Among his many accomplishments was the establishment of the in-flight Medial Experiments Program, which evaluated human responses to extended space flight in preparation for the Mercury, Gemini, Apollo, and Skylab manned space flight programs. His greatest achievement was conceptualizing, establishing, and chairing the Space Medicine Advisory Group (SPAMAG), which was charged with defining the earth-based and space-based research and life-support requirements for a manned orbiting research laboratory. This group proposed an orbiting laboratory designed according to the needs of future human flight crews which resulted in the creation of Skylab. Now on display at the Southwest Collection/Special Collections Library through September 2015, is an exhibit containing books, photographs, artifacts, and medical and scientific reports. More information on this topic can be found in the Sherman P. Vinograd Papers.
