24 Works on Paper

Free Public Reception Thursday December 5th 5-7 PM RSVP on Facebook here!

On display in the Tulsa World | Lorton Family Gallery from December 5, 2019 – January 18, 2020

Paper is about possibility—both literal and metaphorical. Familiar and accessible to artists at every level, paper has spurred centuries of innovative creation. Over the past two decades or so, paper has even proven itself resilient in the face of digital technologies and screen culture. We love the look and feel of paper, its responsiveness to pencil, ink, chalk, marker, and paint—and we love the drama of its sound as it is cut, torn, folded, and crumpled. We likewise love its history, which opens up the potential for wit, humor, and profundity. In this exhibition, twenty-four artists from across Oklahoma masterfully explore the limitless possibilities of paper.

A biennial traveling exhibition, this exhibit features work by living Oklahoma artists: MJ Alexander,, Michelle Bradsher, Marti Cordova, Jason Cytacki, Bryan Dahlvang, Kiana Daneshmand, Brian Dehart, Emma Difani, Douglas Elder, JJ Hawkey, Claire Holloway, Jennifer Johnson, Howard Koerth, Jana LaChance, Andy Mattern, Regina Murphy, romy owens, Haley Prestifilippo, Mat Reed, Mark Sisson, Virginia Sitzes, Sheri Talkington, Carla Waugh, and Jenny Woodruff. Curated by Louise Siddons, Ph.D., Associate Professor of American, Native American, Modern and Contemporary art history at Oklahoma State University.
