Images of the Holy Land: Photographs by Beatriz Henderson opens at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 19 in the Lightwell Gallery. The exhibition is on display through Thursday, Dec. 5.
Beatriz Henderson’s photographs define a pilgrimage to Israel and Jordan. The images reflect both her devotional allegiance to her religious faith and her commitment toward creation of artistic originality.
Henderson died the month following her journey. Her husband, Arn, developed this exhibition as a memorial with the assistance of her principal mentor, School of Art and Art History professor Andrew L. Strout. Father Bill Pruett of St. James Catholic Church in Oklahoma City and professor Farland Stanley, director of the OU Center for Classical Archaeology and Civilizations, also assisted in the development of the project. Lauren Barnes, a student colleague of Beatriz, co-curated the exhibition alongside Mr. Henderson. Images of the Holy Land will ultimately travel to Guatemala, the home country of Beatriz.
The Lightwell Gallery is located on the second floor of the School of Art & Art History at 520 Parrington Oval in the OU Arts District. Gallery hours are from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.

The First Annual School of Art and Art History Student Exhibition was held in 1914 at the University of Oklahoma. This competitive, juried show is held each spring and highlights the diverse works of art created by OU School of Art and Art History students. 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.
In honor of this centennial anniversary, the School of Art and Art History will be hosting an exhibition of alumni work to be held in conjunction with the 100th Annual Student Exhibition. The Alumni Exhibition will be on display in the Lightwell Gallery at the School of Art & Art History from January 13 to February 14, 2014.
