The First 50 Years of Art in Oklahoma was about early Oklahoman artists, who became advisers to Oklahoma on the appreciation of art. The Oklahoma Pioneer Artists were the catalyst of fine art in Oklahoma, art education and the development of art museums.
Artists in the wake of WWII took a new look at creative expression and progressive politics, like T.C. Cannon and Jack Vallee. They had a different visual perception about the changes that were taking place and what was happening in the world. Artists such as Eugene Bavinger, Doel Reed and Wallace Owens Jr,, along with other artists of the time, focused on self-expression, self-discovery and concepts beyond arts ordinary function. The use of different materials, textures, surfaces and unconventional elements will be represented through painting, printmaking, and sculpture exhibited.more
