Art by LaRue Myers on exhibit at

OPSU's No Man's Land Museum

LaRue Myers was born and raised in Edgewood , New Mexico until she married her husband, Ted. Since then, she has resided near Felt, Oklahoma on a ranch. She and Ted have two children, a daughter Cheryle Winberg of Westminister , Colorado and a son, Carl Doug Myers of rural Boise City . She also has two grandsons and five great-grandchildren.

Mrs. Myers has been painting for twenty-five years and credits her style in oil painting to renowned artist, the late Lee K. Parkinson of Layton , Utah . Her watercolor style was enhanced by workshops with Danny Gamble and Harold Scott. Mrs. Myers is a versatile artist, varying in subject matter including western, Southwestern, regional street scenes and old houses of a bygone era.

Throughout her career, Mrs. Myers has been involved in area art groups. Most notably, she was a member of Artist Studio Northwest of Guymon and previously exhibited her work in the No Man's Land Museum in 1991. In 1988, ASNW awarded her the Artist of the year award, and in 1989, the ASNW Fine Arts Award. Mrs. Myers was also a member of the Dalhart Area Fine Arts Association and the Cimarron County Art Association of Boise City.

Mrs. Myers has had tremendous success selling her work over the years. However, recently, she and Ted celebrated their 60 th wedding anniversary and feel it is time to slow down.

Mrs. Myers work will be on display at No Man's Land Museum until December 6.
