Paintings Drawings Prints Suite Oklahoma Exchange portfolio prints About the Artist Contact






This exchange portfolio is a group of 18 printmakers who live in Oklahoma. It was completed in July of 2007. It originated last year from a desire to see the current work of contemporary printmakers in this area. In 1996-97, I organized another Suite Oklahoma with 22 artists participating. The title comes from a recollection of Leon Russell singing of "sweet Oklahoma..." and I felt it would be a great title for the portfolio.

As a lover of the medium of prints, and the organizer of this portfolio, it has been a pleasure to work with everyone involved. It has been wonderful to see the range of work created. A beautiful clamshell box was made for participants by Portfoliobox, Inc. The paper size is 15"x20" and the image size is listed below. It is scheduled for its first exhibit at Artsplace in Ponca City in July 2007, and September/October at Las Milagros Studios in Oklahoma City, and the Lachenmeyer Arts Center in Cushing. It will be exhibited at the Leslie Powell Gallery in Lawton for November and December, and Scribners Gallery in Enid for February 2008. More venues to follow...
