William Stoehr: Victims, Witnesses, and Survivors

Date/Time

Jun 8, 2019 to Jul 19, 2019
06:30 PM until 05:00 PM

This event occurs weekly, on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

Description

The University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma’s Nesbitt Gallery will feature painter William Stoehr’s powerful portraits in “Victims, Witnesses, and Survivors.” The gallery will host an opening reception with the artist June 8 at 6:30 p.m. that is free and open to the public. The exhibit will remain on display until July 19.

Focusing on large portraits, Stoehr starts with an ambiguous expression, shared gaze and uncertain context calculated to provoke the viewer into creating a narrative. He uses a limited palette of acrylic paint along with metallic and iridescent colors to produce patterns that change with lighting and perspective. Stoehr experiments with the amount and type of information required to evoke an image and to find those characteristics that cause an emotional response to the portrait.
