WAA is honored to feature Aledo artist, Homer Norris as the special guest artist during the Western Art Show.
Few figures in Parker County are as beloved as Homer Norris. Humble, inquisitive, appreciative-and gifted beyond measure, he is artist and storyteller, archaeologist and explorer, student and teacher. One of 11 children born to a brilliant yet poor Aledo welder, during the bleak days of the Great Depression, Homer roamed the countryside – and found his spirit’s nourishment in this land. Drawn to the romantic history of Parker County’s artifacts and relics, mesmerized by the loveliness to be found in a simple iris, captivated by the tales told by old-timers, he developed a passion for beauty and formidable love for his home and its people. To this day he gleans joy, solace and awe from this rugged terrain.
