SHAWNEE -- The Mabee-Gerrer Museum of Art is going all out to show its appreciation to the amazing people in our community who provide support through membership.
At 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 12, staff at the museum will be serving up a fantastic combination of down home red dirt music and decadent red velvet cupcakes at the Red Dirt n' Red Velvet Membership Appreciation Party.
Our Red Dirt Concert in the Courtyard will feature Oklahoma Opry Hall of Fame singer/songwriter Melissa Hembree. Specializing in "Texhoma" music, Hembree is an entertainer through and through.
During her career she has performed with country greats such as Reba McEntire, George Strait, Pam Tillis, Shenandoa, Gene Autry, Marty Robbins, Wade Hayes, Conway Twitty, Ernest Tubb, Moe Bundy, and Ronnie Milsap.
The museum is on the St. Gregory's University campus, 1900 W MacArthur in Shawnee. The phone number is 878-5300.
