The leak we have been looking for is suddenly worse. Please report any wet spots you see that look out of place! We have already checked the Egg and the area reported over behind EMS… they were not The issue. This is getting critical and may force conservation measures by Monday if not found.

Come join us at Earth and Fire Gallery in a celebration of Copper Love’s life and art starting on Saturday, November 18.
Copper Love was born on Dec. 10, 1949 and left us on Mar. 28, 2017. Copper’s love affair with the Big Bend started back in the early 70’s, enjoying a trip with her sister JoAnn to paint the mountains and skies that had captured her imagination and her heart.
Copper was an inspiration to those who knew her, both friends of many years, as well as those who only met her briefly. Her aura glowed with her joy of life!
Her paintings captured the drama of the vistas she set out to paint. How she loved the Big Bend sunrises and sunsets…and not another picturesque sky will go by without thinking of Copper, and feeling her in our hearts.
Her first art show in the Big Bend was back in 1989 at Dos Amigos Gallery in the Terlingua Trading Co. Followed by (not in this order) Spirit of the West Gallery, Front Street Books, Ft. Davis Drug Store Gallery, Lajitas Gallery, countless Gallery Nights/Art Walks, Dale Jensen Gallery, Diva Terlingua, Leapin’ Lizard, High Sierra Bar and Grill, Earth and Fire Gallery, Starlight Theater… Now in full circle, Copper is showing at the Terlingua Trading Co.,: Starlight from 11/10-11/18: and then following up at the Earth and Fire Gallery through the month of November.
