One of our patrons’ favorite features about our current exhibition Frank Reaugh: Landscapes of Texas and the American West is the “guide by cell” audio tour for visitors. This audio tour lets visitors call in and hear informational snippets about the paintings. In the audio tour, Ransom Center Curator of Art Peter Mears supplemented the exhibition highlights, and Project Specialist Greg Curtis speaks as the voice of Frank Reaugh to narrate the artist’s own comments.
Continuing the Ransom Center’s efforts to share some of Mears’s favorite pieces in the exhibition with our readers, this week we’re providing the second installment in our 11-part audio-visual series. This one features Reaugh’s recollections of an early morning painting expedition interrupted by the arrival of a mysterious singing shepherd and his flock in the painting titled The Singing Shepherd of Acoma.
The Ransom Center offers free daily docent-led exhibition tours occurring at noon, with additional tours at 6 p.m. on Thursdays and 2 p.m. on the weekends.
