Art is not just paintings on the wall, or sculptures. Art comes in many forms and is evident in the DHS Alumni Show that opened this week at The Art Center.
Dumas High School has graduated many talented artists and some of their art work is featured in the exhibit. Art pieces by 26 former students are included in the exhibit which will hang until June 28.
A reception will be held Saturday, June 15, from 12 to 4, immediately following the Dogie Day parade.
The show features about 80 pieces from artists who graduated as early as 1948 and as recent as 2017.
One of the graduates participating in the show is Donna Langley Livingston, a graduate of 1976. She paints on silk and creates hand painted scarves and ponchos.
A 1976 graduate, Terri Colston George, is displaying some carvings. One is a 12-piece nativity scene.
Debbie Brown Sullivan, a 1974 graduate, creates stained glass art. She now lives in Liberty, Texas.
Other participants will be displaying quilts, photography, carvings, jewelry, knives, paintings, sculpture, fabric art and stained glass.
The artists are not just from Dumas, but other places in Texas and as far away as Bellevue, Washington.
