Last Stand to Nowhere Poster

Felice House is most famous for her Re-Western Art Exhibit and her ability to bring real women to life on canvas in some of the most iconic roles in Western Film.  We could not be more grateful to Felice for agreeing to bring our set images to life on our poster for Last Stand to Nowhere.

The poster is inspired by the poster for the 1957 Gunfight at the OK Corral starring Burt Lancaster and Kirk Douglas. Felice used set photographs from Mavreen David and Michelle Lamberson to inspire the final poster you see today. The lettering was created by hand by fellow Austin artist, Ken Manthei, and Isabelle Swiderski of Vancouver-based Seven25 handled the typography.

The poster represents the efforts of so many individuals, and truly represents my belief that women in roles other than Saloon Prostitute and Chaste Farm Wife makes is what will help catapult Westerns into a more prominent position in the twenty-first century.

The Western has become a sort of modern mythology and like most mythologies, women have been an afterthought. Hopefully, our project can prove that change in how we tell Westerns would be a good thing.
