Jim Vallion, owner of Trochta’s Flowers, spent two weeks in Taos, New Mexico, working on the Doel Reed Center For The Arts property. He worked on the grounds in preparation of the upcoming renovations and remodeling of the Center which was established in 2009 as part of Oklahoma State University’s College of Arts and Sciences for summer programs.

The family property was given to OSU in 2006 by the late Martha Reed, daughter of Dole Reed, and includes 11/2 acres of land with two century-old adobe homes and Reed’s personal studio.

The crew of workers cleared out 28 tons of debris.

The late Dole Reed was a professor and the first head of the OSU Art Department. He reached international fame as an artist and printmaker. His specialty was aquatint.
