FINE ARTS NEWS BRIEFS

Art

Celebrated artist spotlighted

Opening Thursday at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum, 1700 NE 63, is a new exhibit titled “Allan Houser & His Students.” The installation, which examines Houser as teacher and mentor, includes works by Houser from the museum's permanent collection, along with those by his students and proteges.

The exhibit also will address the time Houser spent attending and teaching at Indian schools, pushing the boundaries of American Indian art. An opening reception is planned from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Thursday.

In conjunction with the exhibit, the museum will hold a special activity day from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sept. 7. Events include performances by the Riverside Indian School Apache Club of Anadarko, curator-led tours and a children's activity. The exhibit will be on view through May 11.

For more information, call 478-2250 or go to www.nationalcowboymuseum.org.

Workshops planned

Artspace at Untitled, 1 NE 3, will offer a three-day screen printing workshop from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday through Sept. 1. Topics include reductive hand drawing, hand cut paper stencils, photo emulsion and paper registration. Participants will create prints using multiple screen printing techniques.

A one-day screen printing workshop, which will focus on paper registration and photo emulsion, will be held from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sept. 7. For more information, call 815-9995 or go to www.artspaceatuntitled.org.

Solo exhibit

Opening Friday at Artspace at Untitled, 1 NE 3, is “Mark Fox: This Too,” an exhibit influenced by the memory of seeing a tornado when the artist was a child. Fox has captured their destructive properties, but also their potential for renewal and innovation in his animation and sculptures. An opening reception is planned from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday. “Mark Fox: This Too” will remain on view through Oct. 26.
