Featured Artwork: Maynard Dixon, Open Range, 1942

A lifelong nonconformist, in art as well as life, the fiercely independent Dixon scorned schools, fashions, trends, and movements. His creed was simple: Find the truth in the West’s spirit, its vastness, solitude, and power; interpret the land’s relevance to people and its dominance over their very spirit and lives; and finally, with enormous clarity, simplicity, and honesty, portray the culture of the native peoples and their special metaphysical harmony with the land, their gods, and lives.

Guests to this program will enjoy an equally moving menu featuring an “Orleans” grilled tenderloin salad—crisp salad greens, fresh spinach, grilled Portobello mushrooms, roasted Roma tomatoes, grilled eggplant, Kalamata olives and feta cheese tossed in a Dijon vinaigrette and topped with grilled sliced tenderloin. Strawberry shortcake with whipped cream is a sweet farewell.
