The exhibit was installed on May 6th and will run through June 2nd. The featured artist this month is Anke E. Dodson. Her style: realism; her media: from watercolor, to acrylic, to monotype, to mixed media (Anke utilizes a broad range of media); her subject matter: from architectural, to landscapes, to seascapes, to cityscapes, she paints them all; her surfaces: watercolor canvas, clayboard, aquaboard, yupo, rice paper, and watercolor paper.
Anke has studied painting in watercolor and pastels with nationally known artists and in recent years added the art of printmaking (more specifically, monotypes).
Anke was invited to teach a monotype workshop in conjunction with the “Rauchschenberg at Gemini” exhibition at the Philbrook Museum of Art in June of 2011 and had a solo exhibition at the gallery of the Performing Arts Center (PAC) in Tulsa in October of 2011. Included in the PAC exhibit were a large number of monotypes portraying the change of seasons on the prairie.
This NSU exhibit also includes a large number of monotypes. So, stop by the Visitor’s Gallery on the Broken Arrow campus of Northeastern State University to enjoy the wonderful art of Anke Dodson. You’ll be glad you did.
