Faces of the West

April 22, 1993

Glendora resident Richard Myer is one of the featured artists at the San Dimas Festival of Western Arts this weekend.

Two of his sculptures, top, are a bronze tribute to another cowboy artist, Charles Russell, and one depicting a young Hopi Indian girl.

Myer, working on a sculpture of a child in his studio at his home, said the hairdo of the Hopi Indian girl indicates that she is unmarried, and a turquoise necklace indicates possible wealth.

The 17th annual American Indian and Cowboy Artists Exhibition began Wednesday with the opening of a student art exhibition in the City Hall lobby.

Other events are a Western barbecue and dance tonight under a tent at the San Dimas Civic Center; a Western trading post and fine art gallery of professional works opening Friday; a pancake breakfast, an art seminar, country dancing, Indian dancers, quick-draw demonstrations and an awards banquet on Saturday, and more dance performances and an auction of fine art on Sunday.

The San Dimas Civic Center is at 245 E. Bonita Ave. Information: (909) 599-5374.
