24 Works on Paper, Oklahoma’s only traveling art exhibit that features artists who live and work in the state, closes on Nov. 4.
The exhibit is open from 1 p.m. – 5 p.m. Monday – Friday in the Eleanor Hays Art Gallery at Northern Oklahoma College in Tonkawa.
Artists chosen for the curated exhibit differ in age, background and style and what unifies them is that they all make work on paper – in media such as printmaking, drawing, painting and photography.
The guest curator for 24 Works on Paper was Michael R. Grauer, Curator of Cowboy Collections and Western Art at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum. The biennial exhibition is managed by the Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition, a statewide nonprofit whose mission is to grow and develop Oklahoma’s visual arts community through education, promotion, connection and funding.
