Paintings by 4 Oklahoma artists to be featured in "Horses" exhibit at Paseo gallery
“Horses,” often considered man’s most revered and fascinating animal partner, painted by four noted artists from Oklahoma, will be featured in July at JRB Art at The Elms Gallery, 2810 N Walker. The exhibit opens with a reception from 6 to 10 tonight during the First Friday Gallery Walk in Oklahoma City’s Paseo Arts District.
The exhibit will be on view through July 28, according to a news release.
Joe Andoe, Jean Richardson, Jennifer Hustis and Brent Learned are widely known for their ability to capture our imagination and hearts with their distinctly different representations of the animal that is said to have done more to change human history than any other domestic animal. For centuries, this multitalented beast of burden has carried generals into battle, forged the trail of many westward expansions, wrangled for cowboys and raced for jockeys.
Joe Andoe was born into a farming family in Tulsa. He earned his MFA from the University of Oklahoma and has lived and worked in New York since 1985. He is admired for his minimal landscapes and idealized depictions of horses, dogs, deer, buffalo, wolves and flowers. His simple and elegant images of the horse still refer to his roots in the Great Plains. His paintings are in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Museum of Fine Art in Boston, the San Diego Museum of Contemporary Art and the St. Louis Museum of Art.
Jennifer Cocoma Hustis graduated with a MFA in Painting from the Pratt Institute in New York, received a BFA in Painting from the University of Oklahoma and has studied at the Royal College of Art in London. Jennifer began riding horses as a young girl and for the past decade has focused on horse therapy and the art of horse whispering. Jennifer is the founder of Art of Horsemanship, LLC, an organization that promotes a safe, holistic and creative way to approach horsemanship and provides art lessons for students of all ages.
