Artist of the Month

Thursday, February 18, 2016 at 5:30PM / The Museum of Western Art

The Museum of Western Art will host its monthly Artist of the Month reception on Thursday, February, 18, 2016 at 5:30 p.m. with Cowboy Artist Fred Harman. Non-museum members are invited to attend with a suggested donation of $10. Fred Harman (1902 -- 1982), a founding member of the Cowboy Artists of America, had no formal art training. At one time a colleague of Walt Disney, Harman is perhaps best known for his popular Red Ryder comic strip, which began as Bronc Peeler in 1934. In 1938, Bronc Peeler morphed into Red Ryder. The comic strip was so popular that comic books, Big Little Books, radio programs and more evolved out of it. Harman began painting in 1964 after he retired from the comic strip. The Fred Harman Art Museum is located in Pagosa Springs, Colorado. The Museum’s speaker for the February 18 event will be Fred Egloff, a former president of Westerners International, the oldest, largest and most active Western history organizations worldwide. In fact, Westerners International has named Egloff a living legend. Egloff authored El Paso Lawman which was voted among the 100 outstanding non-fiction Westerns of the 20th century. “Fred Harman continues to be a major figure in Western Americana. Those that don’t recognize his name will recognize his creations -- Red Ryder and Little Beaver.” The award-winning Museum of Western Art is located at 1550 Bandera Highway in Kerrville. Hours are 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. For more information, please call 830-896-2553.

Skywarn

6:30 pm - 8:30 pm / 121 US Hwy 87 W

The Skywarn weather training is offered free of charge from the National Weather Service (NWS). The training lasts around two hours and teaches basic weather safety, the different types of thunderstorms and the hazards associated with storms. We educate how to spot severe weather and how/what to report back to authorities. After training is complete, you will be an official weather spotter for the NWS. The NWS will count on you to be our "eyes" out in the field, when trying to verify severe weather across South Central Texas. With 33 counties under the jurisdiction of the Austin-San Antonio National Weather Service, it becomes very important to verify and accurately determine where severe weather is occurring. Real time reports to our office can save lives and property. Post storm reports can help us find severe weather damage, tornado tracks, and verify severe weather warnings. The presentation is filled with interesting weather pictures and videos. Hope to see you at the training!
