This exhibition is a celebration of artist Linda Lou Warren’s family lineages and the qualities of fortitude and perseverance that keep life going. The paintings and clay sculptures come from the map of Warren’s past and tell a story of her life and those who came before her and shape her identity. The artworks showcased in the exhibition are about the importance of Warren’s Irish, English, and Spanish roots. The doctors, lawyers, preachers, real estate and insurance entrepreneurs, New York debutants, California fruit pickers, nurturing mothers, and artists who have helped her know who she is. The paintings and clay pieces are the language of her heritage.
During summer months, the Malinda Berry Fischer Gallery in the OSU Museum of Art presents exhibitions featuring regional and local artists.
The exhibition is on view May 11 - Aug. 1. There will be an opening reception and artist talk on Thursday, July 16, from 5 - 7 pm. The talk begins at 6.
