All Month:

Belinda Chlouber-Words & Paint – A Collaboration with Family Writings, Postal Plaza Gallery, 720 S. Husband.  This exhibition is inspired by Belinda Chlouber’s family poetry and writings.  The artwork reflects the artist’s long time interest in the senses, communication, and how we interact with artwork.  Through script, thread, and paint, Chlouber strives to re-weave the past and demonstrates its current, otherwise unseen, persistence in the present.  Her mixed media acrylic paintings utilize textures from fabrics, machine embroidery/stitching, and monoprints.  Chlouber loves to explore “traditional” women’s crafts, as she feels it reflects and connects deeply with the historical role of women.  Chlouber often works with many layers so that when the work is examined closely, half hidden images are unearthed.  Free and open to the public.

 

Framing History-highlights from the Oklahoma State Capitol senate Collection, Postal Plaza Gallery, 720 S. Husband.  Artwork on loan from the Oklahoma State Capitol’s Senate Collection will be featured in this exhibition.  Co-curated by Senator Charles Ford and Victoria Rowe Berry, this exhibition celebrates the artists and their process for capturing the narrative.  Throughout the exhibition, the OSU Museum of Art will host artist’s talks from a select group of artists whose work is featured.  In addition, the exhibition will offer a behind-the-scenes look into Senator Ford’s expedition to collect antique frames and how the selection was made to lend the right historical framework for each painting.

 

Watercolor Paintings by Althea Wright, Postal Plaza Gallery, 720 S. Husband.  As part of the Malinda Berry Fischer Gallery programming, the Postal Plaza Gallery is pleased to introduce Watercolor Paintings by Althea Wright.  This exhibition features the watercolor paintings by Althea Wright, a Stillwater-based artist and former Oklahoma State University faculty member.  Following her retirement, Wright began to pursue watercolor painting.  Having always been involved with sewing, interior decorating, and other creative pursuits, she has begun to explore painting only in the recent years.  Many of her pieces are inspired by the beauty of nature.
