09/25 Sid Richardson Museum & Store 9:00am 09/25 thru 05/31

Sid Richardson Museum: Exhibition - Take Two: George Catlin Revisits the West

Take Two: George Catlin Revisits the West features 17 paintings from George Catlin's Cartoon Collection portraying the cultural life of the Native Americans he encountered in his travels in the 1830s. The Exhibition features 4 rare Catlin illustrated books and Buffalo Hunt, a bronze sculpture by Charles M. Russell. A selection of paintings from the Museum's permanent collection, by Frederic Remington, Charles. M. Russell, and others, is also included.

 

"Catlin’s art is a natural fit for The Sid Richardson Museum, since Charles Russell and Frederic Remington, two of the most prominent artists in our permanent collection, also devoted themselves to Western themes, with a great awareness of what was unfolding in the West during their lifetime. Catlin...painted anticipating a time in the future when the manners and customs of the American Indian would be lost. Remington and Russell...painted with a sense of nostalgia for a West that was then passing or had already passed."- Mary Burke, Sid Richardson Museum Director

 

Experience the 19th Century American West at the Sid Richardson Museum and Gift Store today!  The museum, located in the heart of Sundance Square, boasts paintings by Frederic Remington, Charles M. Russell and other premier Western artists. 

 

The museum store offers unique western items, including prints, bronzes, jewelry, books, children's toys, prints on canvas both framed and unframed, and works by local artisans.

03/28 McDavid Studio 5:30pm

Betty Buckley with Christian Jacob

March 28 (5:30 & 8pm)
McDavid Studio, Fort Worth.
$60.50
817-212-4280


Betty Buckley
and pianist Christian Jacob will bring to McDavid Studio for two shows, in her hometown of Fort Worth, a haunting and timeless evening of music from her new album GHOSTLIGHT.

The album was recently selected by USA Today as the No. 2 pick of the Top Five Albums of 2014.

The new recording reunites her with longtime friend and producer T Bone Burnett. Buckley and Burnett began their musical collaboration when both were 19 years old, living in Fort Worth.

Broadway Legend Buckley has starred in ten Broadway shows including 1776, Cats and Sunset Boulevard and has been called "The Voice of Broadway". She is one of most respected and legendary leading ladies of theater, television and film.

Multi-Grammy-winning producer Burnett has combined his unique artistic sensibilities into massively popular musical projects such as the soundtracks to the films O Brother, Where Art Thou?, Walk the Line and Crazy Heart, and the television series Nashville.

"BETTY BUCKLEY is about finding her own soul in the soul of a song and adding to it in a way that makes it her own while making it irresistible to us. She is the opposite of a belter: she is, instead, an artist of restraint. We are disarmed in her presence. I'm neither exaggerating nor making this up, as you will find listening to Ghostlight surely her most accomplished album to date. - Jeremy Gerard

BETTY BUCKLEY just released an album, Ghostlight, a collaboration with the great producer T Bone Burnett, an old friend from Texas, that captures more dimensions of her complex musical personality than anything she has recorded before. Broadway standards (Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered) sit comfortably beside gems by Mary Chapin Carpenter (Where Time Stands Still), Abbey Lincoln (Throw It Away) and Tom Waits (Take It With Me When I Go) whose lyrics cut to the bone.

In uncovering the truths in song lyrics, Ms. Buckley might be described as a heart surgeon."  - Stephen Holden, The New York Times

Carpenter will be joined on stage by longtime friends Jon Carroll (piano) and John Doyle (guitars, bouzouki).


Carpenter has spent the past year performing alongside world-renowned orchestras since the release of her debut orchestral album, Songs From the Movie, which was conducted and arranged by six-time Grammy Award winner Vince Mendoza.Passionate Kisses and He Thinks He'll Keep Her, she has won five Grammy Awards (with 15 nominations), two CMA awards and two Academy of Country Music awards for her vocals.

Her songs speak to the most personal of life's details and the most universal.
