Artist of the Month


At 5:30 pm on December 20, the Museum will host its Artist of the Month program featuring Jack Sorenson. Although he was born in 1954, Jack Sorenson grew up living the Old West lifestyle that he now depicts in his work. Coming of age and working at Six Gun City, a dude ranch and frontier town in the style of the Old West situated on the rim of the Palo Duro Canyon and owned by his father, Sorenson was deeply embedded with a love for the stories and imagery that characterized the Old West, and which continues to motivate him to this day.
Whereas other teenagers spent their adolescence working in retail or fast food, Sorenson worked as a stagecoach driver, a performance gunfighter, and a horse trainer. A naturally gifted artist since childhood, Sorenson began painting full-time in 1974. After his first one-man show sold out that same year, Sorenson committed himself to a career in art and never looked back.
Stephanie Turnham, executive director of the Museum, said, "We want everyone to visit the Museum for any and all of these events. They are sure to put us all into the holiday spirit with a special finale of great Western art."
