Howard Payne University is exhibiting paintings by Pam Chadwick Aloisa, gallery director and professor of art history and art at the United States Air Force Academy in Colorado. The show, housed in HPU’s Dorothy and Wendell Mayes Art Gallery located inside the Doakie Day Art Center, will run through Wednesday, April 29.
Titled “First Person Passages,” the exhibit discloses strong personal narratives, some fictional and enhanced, revealing underlying truths about life, work, relationships and the world around us.
“‘Passage’ can refer to a pathway, a safe retreat, a transition, a moving experience, a farewell or a major life change,” said the artist. “It can also mean a way toward a destination or a psychological state of moving on. The ‘First Person Passages’ exhibit features human-interest stories of my life that also operate as metaphors for the myriad meanings of the word ‘passage’.”Aloisa’s paintings have won national and regional awards since 1986. She completed a bachelor’s degree and two master’s degrees while on active duty in the Air Force, studying under renowned artists Leon Golub, Judith Brodsky and Ida Lorentzen.

The public is invited to attend a Keep Texas Free presentation hosted by the Pecan Valley Republican Women on Thursday, April 23 at the Brownwood Country Club from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm.
Organizers state that this luncheon will be of interest to anyone who believes in the Constitution as written, ratified, and amended and those who believe in the 10th amendment. Those attending will learn about Federalism, the difference between it and nationalism. Federalism is the main principal upon which the U.S. Constitution was based, how voters are manipulated, and how morals, principals and traditional values are being used to fleece us, according to PVRW representatives.Guest speaker Dwayne Stoval is a native born Texan, who is a Christian, husband, father, small business owner, school board member, and former candidate for U.S. Senate, where he garnered almost 11% of the republican voters in Texas, on just $70,000. About 10 years ago Stoval started down the path of self-study in the founders, framers, and the creation of the Constitution. It has become his passion to spread the truth of what he has learned to anyone that will listen. For more information visit www.getoffmystate.com.
