Tread of Pioneers Museum to host Artwalk reception

The public is invited to the “Two Friends Meet” exhibit reception from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday, June 3 at the Tread of Pioneers Museum.

The free event is part of the First Friday Art Walk. The exhibit features fine art prints depicting local rancher Vernon Summer by Gary Hawk, a Western wildlife watercolor artist.

The prints were bequeathed to the Tread of Pioneers Museum by the Vernon Summer estate and feature Summer, the quintessential cowboy, working on his ranch in Sidney, south of Steamboat Springs.

The prints in this exhibit were given to Summer by Hawk. Following Summer’s death in 2012, the Tread of Pioneers Museum received the collection, along with other items of historical significance from four generations of Summer heirlooms.
