An exhibition of watercolor paintings by Althea Wright, a Stillwater-based artist, continues through Aug. 30 at the Postal Plaza Gallery.

Wright is a former Oklahoma State University faculty member who taught in the Department of Family Relations and Child Development for 20 years. Her artwork, mostly inspired by the beauty of nature, has all been created in the recent years. Her work on a 4-foot by 4-foot fiberglass butterfly, a fundraiser for Wings of Hope, can be seen on Main Street in downtown Stillwater. 

An opening reception at the Postal Plaza Gallery will be held from 5 to 6 p.m. July 10, with an artist talk from 6 to 7 p.m. Admission is free and no reservations are required. For more information, call 405-744-2780 or visit museum.okstate.edu/exhibitions/watercolor-paintings-althea-wright

This exhibition is part of the Malinda Berry Fischer Gallery programming. To honor Fischer’s dedication to and advocacy for the arts, as well as her deep roots in Stillwater, the OSU Foundation and the OSU Museum of Art have teamed up to provide a dedicated gallery space inside the Postal Plaza Gallery at 720 S Husband St.

Every summer, the gallery will feature engaging exhibitions with a regional flair or local connection.
