Arlington TX Post Office Mural
The mural entitled “Gathering Pecans,” painted by Otis Dozier in 1941, is an example of New Deal artwork. It was created for the historic former post office in Arlington, Texas, which is now privately owned.
Dozier was a painter, printmaker and teacher who was a charter member of the Dallas Artists League. “By the mid-1930s he had tightened up his brushwork and muted his palette to the earthy grays, beiges, greens, and browns favored by regionalist artists. Several of his major works from this era focused on the plight of farmers dispossessed by the Great Depression.” (http://www.tshaonline.org)
