Old Spanish Trail Studio, the working fine art studio of Big Bend Artist Lindy Cook Severns is tucked away deep in the Davis Mountains between Fort Davis and Valentine, Texas. In this quiet space surrounded by nature, Lindy paints, draws, packages cards, mats prints and wraps paintings for shipping. It isn't a high tech, fancy workspace. It's just an old ranch building, Lindy's Artist Cave.
We used to not allow visitors, but Lindy's collectors convinced us the studio is a rather interesting space. Original art for sale online sometimes lives there until it finds a good home. Since there's a time-gap between creating art and delivering paintings to the framer, to an exhibit or to one of the fine art galleries that represent Lindy, new and unlisted work regularly hangs in the studio, where we "store" framed art on the walls.
The studio is closed to visitors several months out of the year, when Lindy and Jim are traveling. We're NOT stuffy art snobs, but since it isn't a retail space and we don't keep regular hours, you'll need to contact us before you venture into the mountains.
You can almost always visit Old Spanish Trail Gallery and Museum, on the ranch near the studio. Lindy is the Artist-in-Residence for this high end, destination fine art gallery on Crows Nest Ranch. This heritage ranch starts a mile high, and spread across a rugged region in the Davis Mountains. It's about twenty miles southwest of historic Fort Davis, Texas, and not too far from Marfa or Alpine. The Gallery is OPEN to visitors seven days a week, year around. Allow yourself time, not only to enjoy the art but also, our scenery. Don't get all gussied up to visit us, either. This ain't Dallas.
Call or text 432.249.1968 or email email@example.com to let someone know when you'd like to visit.
We'll give you directions. It's not hard to get here, but you've got to know where you're heading.
Old Spanish Trail Studio entertains interesting visitors, including some who don't care how much fine art currently hangs on the studio's walls.
Davis Mountain wildlife roam nearby. You might see mule deer, roadrunners, javelina, hummingbirds, hawks, foxes, bobcats... (Not to fear-- the cougars roam the higher country above Lindy's 6000 ft. high studio, and they aren't interested in fine art)
