The Cameron University Department of Art presents “Theosophia,” the Annual Senior Art Exhibition, from April 5 through May 4 at the Museum of the Great Plains, 601 NW Ferris Ave. in Lawton. “Theosophia” showcases mature bodies of works by 19 Cameron students. Included in the exhibition are paintings, drawings, prints, digital work, and graphic design. The opening reception is Saturday, April 5 from 6:30 to 9 p.m.
Cameron’s senior art majors have created works based on their own style and content. Each is responsible for the professional presentation of his/her work, which includes mounting the exhibition and publicity.
The term “Theosophia” refers to a set of philosophies concerning the search for direct knowledge through the mysteries of the self and nature, particularly the nature of divinity. Since art is fundamentally about communicating thoughts, emotions, and ideas, this philosophy of turning inward for knowledge is not only appropriate, but also necessary.
