The Fred Oldfield Western Heritage Center is one exhibit at the Fair you would not want to miss. The Center brings back a piece of history with exhibits of the Pioneers and Old West. You might even see the stove your great grandma cooked on or the bed your grandfather slept on or the tools and cookwear that were used many years ago.
The paintings of the famed Fred Oldfield depict scenes of bucking horses, Native Americans, miners, cowboys and even our beautiful Mount Rainier. You also might get fortunate to meet this artist himself. Fred is the friendliest cowboy artist that I have ever met. Paintings of his and other western artists are for sale at the Center. Jewlery, prints and cards are also for sale of other artists and even Fred's very own cookbook is available for sale.
Kenneth Hurley is also painting at the Center and you will see him along with his horse and buffalo paintings.Don Crook is also there with his beautiful mountains and horse paintings. Talk to the artists and listen to Don Allard singing cowboy songs and Rockin HW singing and reciting cowboy poems.
The Fred Oldfield Center also gives classes each year in many mediums and classes in art for children. These classes will start Oct. 1st. If you love doing art yourself check into these reasonable classes and learn to draw and paint.
