An Interview with Mrs. Rueby Maeker
Today is the First Friday Art Trail, and we will be replacing all of the wedding gowns displayed in Gallery 1.
We are delighted to share this video interview with Mrs. Rueby Maeker of Lubbock, TX. Married to Arnold Maeker in 1948, Mrs. Maeker wore this “heavenly” blue, cotton velveteen wedding gown (shown below) at her church wedding.
Today is the first Friday of the month and that means it’s time for the First Friday Art Trail. Today we will be replacing all the gowns displayed in the gallery with gowns from 1930s thru the 1940s. The feature dress this month is this 1939 wedding ensemble.
This deep purple wool and mink trimmed coat and dress ensemble was worn by Florence Lawson at her marriage to V. L. Lawson, on Dec. 23, 1939, at 7:30pm in Lubbock, TX.
These dresses shown here will be on display in Gallery 1 from March – May 2012.
Don’t forget to vote for your favorite wedding dress here or at the museum for the dress that well be featured in the center May 2012.
