Cuttin’ Up: The Western Linocuts of Derald Swineford
Jan. 10 – Feb. 26, 2019
This exhibit will feature the framed and matted original linoleum cuts by Oklahoma artist/USAO professor Derald Swineford (1908-1990).
The linoleum cuts, created in the 1950s, were used to make a series of western cowboy Christmas cards.
Swineford was an art instructor for 30 years, at the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma in Chickasha. He began there when it was still known as The Oklahoma College for Women.
During his career, he produced an unknown number of art pieces: oils, sculptures, watercolors, prints and more. He influenced many aspiring artists, including Patsy Nixon and Brunetta Bernard Griffith.
This show will feature his linocuts, some prints and a few of his wood sculptures.
