Oil and Wood: Oklahoma Moderns George Bogart and James Henkle

Nancy Johnston Records Gallery

Through September 14, 2014


This exhibition pairs the work of two distinguished professors emeriti of the OU School of Art & Art History: George Bogart and James Henkle. Bogart, who joined the faculty in 1970, experimented restlessly with oil paint, and the exhibition offers a retrospective of his career. The furniture designs of James Henkle offer a sculptural counterpoint to the paintings of Bogart. Henkle taught design at OU for nearly 40 years and, although he worked in a variety of media, he excelled in the artful design of modernist furniture.
