A Presentation by Documentary Video Producer and Writer Marla Fields entitled: “Frank Reaugh – Landscape and Cattle Painter”

vast-frank-reaugh

You are invited to a presentation by Marla Fields at the Visual Arts Society of Texas (VAST) January monthly meeting on January 5th, 2017, from 7 – 9 p.m. at the Patterson-Appleton Arts Center, 400 East Hickory St, Denton.

Marla will present film highlights that feature artist and poet Frank Reaugh (1860-1945), a key figure in the region’s development of visual art and art education during the 19th Century.

Marla Fields has been a freelance video producer and writer since 1994. Ms. Fields is responsible for and assisted in the creative, preproduction, production, and post-production of various training, promotional, and educational projects, both local and nationwide.

With over 20 years of experience in overseeing numerous productions from script-to-screen in the corporate arena, “Frank Reaugh: Pastel Poet of the Texas Plains” is her first full-length documentary.

She began her Reaugh journey in 2010 by establishing non-profit status for her production and raising funds though small grants and private donations. Since then, she has traveled the state thoroughly researching the artist and his students, recording key interviews, and capturing hundreds of images including the landscapes, landmarks and, of course, the longhorns that Mr. Reaugh sketched and treasured.

With the documentary complete, she is currently creating community events with organizations and institutions that share the common goal of bringing more awareness to this Texas treasure.

Marla is a native Texan, born in Lake Jackson, and resides in Frisco,Texas, just north of Dallas.

To find out more about Marla Fields and Artist Frank Reaugh, see: http://marlafields.com/frankreaugh/

The presentation is free for VAST Members; $3 for guests. http://vastarts.org
