SUPPORTING A LOCAL: It’s good to see the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth devote some prime space to a North Texan on the rise. Rosson Crow, who grew up in Plano before attending Yale, is the subject of the museum’s current Focus show. Her large-scale paintings remind us of a bygone era, with depictions of Old West saloons and rodeos, among other subjects. Interestingly, she wanted to be a country singer first and and an actress second, but she eventually figured out that painting was her true talent. For more on Crow, check out Gaile Robinson’s story on GuideLive.com. Focus: Rosson Crow runs through May 17.
QUOTABLE: “It’s been a long time since I stood up on a stage, 14 or 15 years. I was 60 years old then – just a kid with a crazy dream.”
