Organized by the Wichita Falls Art Association

March 13 – August 15, 2020

Opening Reception Tuesday, March 24, 5-7 pm

The WFMA has cancelled all programs through March 31st, in order to do our part in the fight against the spread of COVID-19 . We will reevaluate after this date.

The Wichita Falls Art Association celebrates 70 years in a city with a rich visual arts tradition. This exhibition features works in all genres by heritage member artists, who exhibited their art from the founding of the association in 1948 through the twentieth century.

These artists, including founders Emil Hermann, Polly Hoffman, Jon Bodkin, Ilma Lucille Craft, Billie Culwell Avis, and Walter Ehlert, sought to delight their viewers, inspire one another, and encourage future generations of artists and viewers.

Together, artists in the association sponsored 40 years of downtown sidewalk shows and encouraged the formation of enduring institutions, such as The Woman’s Forum, the Wichita Falls Museum of Art at MSU Texas, the MSU Fain College of Fine Arts, and the Arts Council and Kemp Center. Through the works in this exhibition, they continue to beckon the viewer to LET ME SHOW YOU THIS!

Bring the Museum into your home! We’ll be making our exhibitions and educational programs available online in the coming weeks. Follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter and share your art experiences at #wfmaartstories.
