The Art oƒ Tonita Peña and Joe Herrera Jan. 26–April 8, 2018 Nancy Johnston Records Gallery Generations in Modern Pueblo Painting: The Art of Tonita Peña and Joe Herrera is the first of its kind: a large-scale, high-quality, scholarly exhibition of three generations of modern Pueblo painting. The exhibition is curated by W. Jackson Rushing III, the Eugene B. Adkins Presidential Professor of Art History and Mary Lou Milner Carver Chair in Native American Art, OU School of Visual Arts. The exhibition is made possible, in part, by a grant from the Norman Arts Council Grant Program.

Jan. 26–April 8, 2018 Ellen and Richard L. Sandor Gallery In this installation by contemporary artist Jesse Small, slivers of the 86-foot-diameter satellite dishes from the Very Large Array in New Mexico intersect the gallery space, forming pattern-infused canopies. Derived from an image of the cosmic microwave background (the oldest light that we can see), shadows of the pattern broadcast throughout the space, alluding to the array as an agent of travel through time and space.

Bialac Native American Art Collection, 2010 Below: Giovanni Pintori (Italy, 1912-1999) Untitled [detail], 1949 Poster mounted on Masonite, 26 x 18 in. Acquisition

Jan. 26–May 27, 2018 Ellen and Richard L. Sandor Photography Gallery This exhibition explores how posters work to sell audiences on products, people, and ideas. It offers visitors an opportunity to see rarely exhibited European and American posters in the museum’s permanent collection that were produced between the fin-de-siècle French poster movement of the 1890s and the 1972 Olympics. Not only will this be the first time many of these posters have been displayed, but the exhibit also marks the museum’s first large-scale poster show in nearly 50 years. Whether bedecked with the sinuous curves of Art Nouveau, the bold patterns of Art Deco, or the minimalist text and imagery of the International Style, these posters demonstrate how style creates and communicates meaning.

April 27–May 13, 2018 Logo design by Nancy Johnston Records Gallery Madison Smith This competitive juried show is held each spring and highlights the diverse works of art created by visual art students from the University of Oklahoma. Multiple awards with cash prizes are presented to students, including the top award, the T.G. Mays Purchase Award, which is offered to a student whose artwork becomes a part of the museum’s permanent collection. Douglas Shaw Elder, Norman sculptor and director of the Firehouse Art Center, will serve as the guest juror for the 104th annual exhibition.

June 8–Sept. 9, 2018 Nancy Johnston Records Gallery Visual Voices: Contemporary Chickasaw Art offers celebratory and mysterious, thought-provoking, and critical two-dimensional and threedimensional works, including abstract and experimental contemporary Chickasaw art. This traveling exhibition offers an opportunity to view recent works by leading and emerging artists of the Chickasaw Nation. The exhibition is made possible by a grant provided by the Chickasaw Nation and by support from The American Indian Cultural Center and Museum.

The Photography Collection of Carol Beesley Hennagin

June 12–Dec. 30, 2018 Ellen and Richard L. Sandor Photography Gallery Carol Beesley Hennagin’s love for photography began during her education at the University of California, Los Angeles. For more than 35 years, she has collected works by many of the best-known photographers of the 20th century and, in 1988, Beesley and her late husband, Michael Hennagin, began donating portions of their collection to the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art. Still Looking offers a survey of Beesley’s collecting practices and includes photographs by established artists such as Edward Weston and Frederick Sommer, as well as lesser-known figures. The exhibit also features promised gifts of Byron Wood’s photographs of Georgia O’Keeffe.
