Truth in Illusion: Truth in Illusion is the name of the newest exhibit at the Doss Heritage and Culture Center featuring artists Michael Bane and Pamela Stern. “The two artists are playing with your perception of reality, or maybe your paradigms of reality with their art. You have to really look to see what’s real,” said C.B. Williams, Curatorial Director of the DHCC. Also on display are pieces from local artists as part of a show hosted by the Parker County Art Association. The Heritage Gallery houses a permanent interactive display that teaches about early pioneer and American Indian Life and the beginnings of Parker County.
