Join us in celebrating the graphic work of OVAC Artist Member, Whitney Batres, a 2D artist hailing from Oklahoma City!

Whitney is a painter living in Oklahoma City, OK. In 2015, she graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with her B.F.A. in Studio Art and has participated in several exhibitions and studio tours around Texas, Utah, and Oklahoma. Gouache is her medium of choice, but she loves all forms of printmaking and textile arts. Her artwork creates imaginary spaces with geometric shapes and saturated color. This body of work aims to elicit bright feelings and create moments of emotional reprieve as if peeking into an area not our own, unaffected by the real world.
