September 28, 2019
The Museum of the Western Prairie in Altus opened a new exhibit on July 2 titled Oklahoma Landscapes: Watercolors by Derald Swineford. The exhibit will run until September 28.
Derald Swineford was the chair of the Art Department at the Oklahoma College for Women in Chickasha, later called the Oklahoma College of Liberal Arts (now the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma) from 1946 to 1975 and was a prolific artist in a variety of media. This retrospective focuses on the watercolors he painted of Oklahoma landscapes over a period of three decades. His appreciation of nature’s beauty is evident in his works.
