ECU to host traveling art exhibition Feb. 18-March 31

Ada — A traveling exhibition of work by living Oklahoma artists, called “24 Works on Paper,” will be open to the public on Feb. 18 at 8 a.m. at the Pogue Art Gallery in the Hallie Brown Ford Fine Arts Center at East Central University.

The exhibition will run through March 21 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays at ECU.

Produced as a collaboration between Individual Artists of Oklahoma (IAO) and the Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition (OVAC), the exhibition is traveling the state for a full year, bringing original, contemporary Oklahoman artwork to viewers in communities large and small.

The “24 Works on Paper” exhibition features 24 artworks created on paper, including media such as printmaking, drawing, painting and photography. 

The guest juror is Dr. Kirsten Olds, assistant professor of art history at the University of Tulsa. 

Olds’ research focuses on artist groups in the 1970s and the networks they forged as alternatives to mainstream institutions such as the art gallery, mass circulation journal and network television.

The “24 Works on Paper” exhibition is sponsored in part by Allied Arts, Oklahoma Arts Council, Red River Photo Services and Toothbrusher’s Dental. In-kind services are provided by Pirate’s Alley Framing.

Among the participating artists are M.J. Alexander, of Oklahoma City; Marilyn Artus, Oklahoma City; Deborah Burian, Oklahoma City; Zach Burns, Oklahoma City; Marsha Gulick, Hominy; Eyakem Gulilat, Norman; Jeff Hogue, Bartlesville; Marcus Kesler, Edmond; David Knox, Oklahoma City; Michael Litzau, Edmond; Traci Martin, Ardmore; Bobby C. Martin, Tahlequah; Brandon Mitts, Stillwater; Eric Piper, Norman; Saumo Puapuaga, Oklahoma City; Laura Reese, Norman; Amy Rockett-Todd, Tulsa; Clarissa Sharp, Oklahoma City; Cathryn Wallace Thomas, Tulsa; Thomas Tucker, Edmond; Elizabeth Vuong, Tulsa; Crystal Walters, Pryor; Blair Waltman, Oklahoma City; and Betty Wood, Norman.
