Description

Meet five Oklahoma artists who explore memory, belonging and beauty through art.

  • David Lee Anderson is an illustrator, actor, art teacher and commercial artist currently painting hyper-realistic paintings of Oklahoma City landmark buildings.
  • Anke Dodson’s painterly realism is expressed in many mediums, but primarily watercolors of Tulsa cityscapes and boats that capture a moment in time of unfailing beauty.
  • Irmgard Geul’s paintings embellished with embroidery show contradictions, commonalities and movement. “The artworks featured in this exhibition show my curious observation of Oklahoma; the landscape, the ever-changing sky, sunrises and sunsets,” said Geul of Pauls Valley.
  • Mark Lewis’ paper and graphite collages feature Tulsa streets. “I love perceptual exploration, experiencing light, the sense of scale, the urban geometry (e.g. telephone poles, street signs and high wires, etc.), the expansive Oklahoma skies, and simply observing people in their daily routines,” said Lewis.
  • Michael McDaniel is a self-taught wood carver from Tuttle who began shaping wood after a storm knocked down trees on his property. The vases and hollow forms he creates may take up to ten months to make.
