The work of Cameron University Professor of Art Katherine Liontas-Warren will be on display during “A Journey of Discovery,” a solo exhibition at the Nona Jean Hulsey Gallery at Oklahoma City University. The show opens on Sunday, August 21, with an artist talk from 1 to 4 p.m. An opening reception is scheduled for Friday, September 2 from 6 to 8:30 p.m. The show will be on display through October 7.
“I have selected a collection of works that best represent my journey as a creative artist and educator,” says Liontas-Warren. “This collection reflects my passion for the narrative, portraiture and landscape. Creating art continuously has provided incredible discoveries about my life and the beauty of our environment. It has been a great journey, and I intend to take this artistic ride for another 30 years.”
Liontas-Warren has been a member of the Cameron faculty since 1984, teaching drawing, watercolor and printmaking. Her work has been exhibited in more than 375 national solo, invitational and juried competitive exhibitions throughout the United States and abroad and has received numerous purchase and juried awards.
She was honored with the Oklahoma Governor's Art and Education Award in 2014. Additional honors include accolades as Artist of the Year by the Paseo Art Association in Oklahoma City and the Artist and Educator of the Year through the Lawton Arts and Humanities Council. Liontas-Warren is a recipient of Cameron’s Bhattacharya Research Excellence Award and has been inducted into the Cameron University Alumni Association Faculty Hall of Fame.
