Hearts of the West: Stories of the Mail Order Brides

7 pm, Feb 08, 2014 | $15
 

“Wanted: A girl who will love, honest, true and not sour; a nice little cooing dove, and willing to work in flour.” This is not one of the Craigslist ads you try to forget you saw; it was placed in the 1800s. Thousands of men traveled West during the Gold Rush, then realized the Wild West was, well, jam-packed with dudes looking for gold. Many decided to advertise for wives—their real letters back and forth are brought to life in a staged reading in a gallery setting directed by Janet Davidson, founder of For Giving Productions. The risk, adventure and drama of traveling miles for a blind date with your new hubby is hard to resist and Casweck anchor artist Ernest Chiriacka has a few pieces inspired by these stories in his Western collection, on display that’ll make you say “I do.”
