Featured Solo Show

J.N. Long Cultural Arts Complex presents two one-man art shows to open September 22 through October 3rd.

Harry Seurkamp will show his premiere woodcarvings and Clayton Boyd with his wonderful oil paintings.

Clayton Boyd has been practicing art since he was 14 years old. He started painting glass dinnerware plates for his mother’s kitchen plate rail. There was a lull during his high school and professional career when his art took a back seat to his being a Tech Writer, Publications Director, Education Director and builder.

In 2001, Clayton Boyd rebooted his art career with Jim Stegall, a well-known artist in many areas. He has since painted almost 100 oils on canvas size 16×20. He has done a few larger ones. He paints with vibrant color and design, as evidenced by his body of work. The subjects of his paintings are as varied as are his interests; he especially likes buildings, people, landscapes and animals one of his favorites titled “Feathers and Fluff.” Come see his art on display at the J.N. Long Cultural Art Center.

Harry Seurkamp started woodcarving in the fall of 1991. He had attended a woodcarving show in Arlington, Texas. He had always been involved in woodworking but the creations these men and women displayed really intrigued him.

Harry Seurkamp took some woodcarving instructions from a carver at Paxton’s Wood in Arlington, then joined some area woodcarving clubs in Fort Worth and Grapevine and picked up a lot of knowledge from the members. He is a member of “The Texas Woodcarvers Guild” which holds a show and carving class in Cleburne April 5-12, 2019.

After competing in several woodcarving shows each year and winning awards, Harry found he had a talent for teaching. For the past 20 years, he has traveled all over Texas and Colorado giving instructions on woodcarving. For the last 10 years, he has been concentrating on Kachina Dolls. He enjoys sharing his knowledge of this lost art.

Harry Seurkamp will give a demonstration on Saturday, September 29 from noon until 4P.M. at the J N Long Cultural Art Center, which also houses the Texas Woodcarving Museum. Contact Harry Seurkamp by email at rxwood61@yahoo.com.
