Once upon a time it was a common adolescent fantasy to grow up to be a cowboy. For Eldon Lux, that fantasy became a lifelong interest that eventually manifested itself through his art. "I enjoy incorporating the beauty of local surroundings in my work," says the Osceola County resident. "Real people, ordinary cowboys, ranchers and neighbors are also involved as subject matter."
Lux will display his high-lonesome visions such as "Good Friends and Good Stories" in an exhibit at the Osceola Center for the Arts, beginning with a meet-and-greet from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Friday, Jan. 8. Lux, whose work has been shown in Europe, Japan and South America, is sharing the spotlight with Linda Ballantine Brown and other Western enthusiasts from the Cowboy Artists Association.
