Work by Oklahoma-Based Artist to be Displayed at Oklahoma Territorial Museum
GUTHRIE, Okla. — The Oklahoma Territorial Museum in Guthrie will host an art exhibition called “A. Day’s Work.” It will feature pieces from Oklahoma-based mixed media artist Andrea Day. The show kicks off on Saturday, April 8, with an opening celebration from 7-9 p.m. that will include refreshments and hors d’oeuvres.
Day is a citizen of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation. She focuses full-time on the development of acrylic and beadwork on canvas and creating new work. Her original designs are achieved in the form of acrylic and hand-sewn seed beads on canvas. They are all guided by nature and heavily influenced by her Mvskoke culture and language, Fuswalgi (Bird Clan) and ancient Southeastern Woodland designs.
The art show will run through Wednesday, May 31. All art will be available to purchase.
The Oklahoma Territorial Museum is located at 406 E. Oklahoma Ave. in Guthrie. For more information, please call 405-282-1889.
