.A self-portrait by Cameron University professor of art Katherine Liontas-Warren has been accepted into “Concept Me,” an invitational exhibition sponsored by Mainsite Contemporary Art Gallery in Norman. Liontas-Warren’s piece, “A Pause at the Top of a Leap,” is a 12” x 36” oil on panel. The exhibition opens June 13 and runs through July 12.
“I’m very excited to be included in this self-portrait exhibition,” says Liontas-Warren. “This work is a sample of my newest painting that I created in May. For the past year, I have rediscovered oils and have found a great love and passion for painting. These new paintings are focusing on portrait of birds, birds and their environment, and portraiture.”
A member of the Cameron faculty since 1984, Liontas-Warren teaches drawing, watercolor and printmaking. She has been honored with the Bhattacharya Research Excellence Award and with induction into the Cameron University Alumni Association Faculty Hall of Fame. In addition, she has been honored as Artist of the Year by the Paseo Art Association and the Artist and Educator of the Year by the Lawton Arts and Humanities Council.
Her work has been exhibited in more than 350 national solo, invitational and juried competitive exhibitions throughout the United States and abroad, and her prints and drawings are in permanent collections in museums and institutions throughout the nation.
Liontas-Warren has juried the Oklahoma Young Talent Statewide competition on three occasions and has been featured in American Artist Magazine. She has led workshops on drawing and printmaking at numerous universities, museums and institutes, including drawing workshops at the Oklahoma Arts Institute at Quartz Mountain for public school educators.
