    Hiding on the backs of some long-forgotten photographs are "ghost" images, faint traces of other pictures that pressed up against the surface. Andy Mattern, Associate Professor of Photography at OSU, coaxes these ghosts to the surface by rephotographing, reworking, and reviving these reanimated images.

    "Some Recent Apparitions" is on view from January 16 – March 23, 2024. Learn more at https://museum.okstate.edu/art/some-recent-apparitions.html and follow them on Facebook and Instagram @OSUMusemofArt, #SomeRecentApparitions.

    Memories and Inspiration: The Kerry and C. Betty Davis Collection of African American Art presents sixty-seven selected works from a body of art amassed over thirty-five years. Kerry, a retired mailman, and Betty, a former television news producer, have foregone many comforts to live with drawings, paintings, prints, and sculpture as their principal luxuries. Their collection includes works by Romare Bearden, Elizabeth Catlett, Ernest T. Crichlow, Sam Gilliam, Loïs Mailou Jones, Jacob Lawrence, Gordon Parks, and Alma Thomas, but Kerry and Betty do not search exclusively for well-known and/or documented artists. Rather, they focus on “the importance of gathering and preserving a spectrum of approaches to the black image in order to console the psyche and contribute to a more authentic articulation of the self.”

    The result is an eclectic gathering of works crossing different mediums, subjects, and styles by a group of artists of the African Diaspora who—in terms of training, experience, and expression—are strikingly diverse but unified in their use of cultural and historical narratives. As their collection has grown, so has the Davises’ storehouse of memories of discovering new works of art, building friendships with artists, and conversing with museum professionals and other collectors in their home. They have also continued to expose their collection to family, friends, and church members who, while receptive to the fine arts, are unlikely to visit such local institutions as the High Museum of Art in Atlanta—prompting the artist Leon Nathaniel Hicks to refer to their residence as “a museum in a home.” "Memories and Inspiration" brings together an awe-inspiring selection of works, but it is their personal resonance—their connection to the Davises’ hopes, passions, and everyday lives—that gives the collection its unique power.

    Memories and Inspiration: The Kerry and C. Betty Davis Collection of African American Art is organized and toured by International Arts & Artists, Washington, DC.

    Funding for the 2023/24 season of exhibitions and programs is provided by Malinda & Richard Fischer, Riccarda de Eccher & Bill Goldston, Caroline & John Linehan, Suzanne Sugg, and the OSU Museum of Art Advocates.

Part cross-country road trip, part romantic comedy, Vietgone will take audiences on a journey through time to reexamine a pivotal moment in American history. Playwright Qui Nguyen gets up close and personal to tell the story that led to the creation of Vietgone.

      The Oklahoma Visionaries exhibition is a THRIVE Project featuring work by twenty, self-taught, Oklahoma artists.
      This exhibit is the culmination of an eleven month search led by co-curators, Pam Hodges and Steve Liggett, to identify Visionary artists currently living in Oklahoma. The curators contacted art organizations, centers, galleries, and collectors, in 29 Oklahoma cities and towns and in four states. The search resulted in submissions from 57 artists. Finding artists who, by nature, are unconcerned with being found was a challenge unique to this endeavor. 

      The Oklahoma Visionaries exhibition features work by twenty, self-taught, Oklahoma artists. All have a drive that springs from a uniquely personal vision and a lack of concern for the mainstream art world. Life experiences that include marginalization also inform their art. 

      All eligible submitting artists will have their profiles available through an online directory and artist profiles will be continually collected for curation for the second Oklahoma Visionaries exhibit to be held in 2025. This show truly represents The Beginning.

      Curators:  

      Steve Liggett is the owner of Liggett Studio and co-curator of this exhibit. He has been an arts advocate and artist in the Tulsa community for 50 years. From 1992 to 2017, Steve was Living Arts of Tulsa’s artistic and executive director.  Under his leadership, Living Arts of Tulsa grew tremendously from grassroots to national recognition for its support of contemporary art and artists. Steve is providing the same quality of leadership to Liggett Studio and this exhibit. In addition to his leadership in the arts, Steve is a practicing artist who maintains pottery and paper-making studios. Steve holds a Masters of Art degree from the University of Tulsa in ceramics.

      Pam Hodges initiated this exhibit and is a co-curator. Since retiring in 2019, as Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s Director of Learning in Atlanta, GA, she returned to Tulsa and is working as a community volunteer and learning new art media. While not claiming to be an artist, she has a BA degree in studio art and art history, was an Assistant Registrar at the Detroit Institute of Arts, a Director of Education at Philbrook Museum of Arts, and a Director of Community Arts at the Arts & Humanities Council of Tulsa.

      Instructor: Maureen Harvey | The Shadow is not always bad, in fact it often contains important skills and awareness that were not valued in our family or culture. It is formed by rejecting aspects of ourselves that we may then project onto others. This is our chance to witness and integrate some of those more difficult parts of our being. Art will involve working with colors we dislike…recognizing their goodness at last!

      Presenting a local panorama of contemporary Black creative practices, this panel discussion will draw on Dr. Autumn Brown’s current oral history research. Dr. Brown documents the stories and practices of Tulsa-based Black artists to demonstrate the presence of Black contemporary art in Oklahoma. Discussion topics will delve into themes that connect with the content presented in "Memories and Inspiration: The Kerry and C. Betty Davis Collection of African American Art." On view at the OSU Museum of Art through May 11, 2024, this exhibition celebrates the passion of an ordinary couple who spent more than 35 years as devoted connoisseurs, building a collection of vivid artworks that are both resonant and remarkably personal.
