RUSSELL — Within the Norton family exists a deep seated legacy of creation. Charlie, Pat and their son Carson Norton work as professional artists with over 100 years of combined experience.
Using bronze sculpture and oil paintings as his primary medium, Charlie finds his inspiration in the history of the Old West. With many monumental sculptures to his credit, Charlie’s major work, the twice life-size Buffalo Bill sculpture in Oakley, holds a spot as one of The 8 Art Wonders of Kansas.
Pat’s artistic vision is expressed in her paintings, Southwest pottery and quilts of her own design.
Carson’s bronze sculpture and paintings embody his passion for hunting, fishing and military history.
Come see their combined works of bronze sculpture, paintings, Southwest pottery, quilts and more in this all-encompassing exhibition of the Norton art legacy.
The Norton’s is on exhibition from June 10 through July 30, at the Deines Cultural Center located at 820 North Main Street in Russell. Galleries are open from noon to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 1-5 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. Admission is free and all are welcome.
