Barbara Grossman, the Noted Artist and Painter, Is the 2013 Mayo Distinguished Visiting Artist at TU

Today we're pleased to share an interesting discussion with Barbara Grossman, the 2013 Ruth B. Mayo Distinguished Visiting Artist at the University of Tulsa's School of Art. A well-established, highly regarded artist who's shown and taught at several leading American galleries and schools from the 1970s onward --- you can view both her work and her bio at her website, by the by --- Grossman acknowledges Matisse and Bonnard as ongoing and prominent influences, but she's also a "drop-dead formalist" (as she puts it) who's found much to admire in the work of certain Abstract Expressionists --- as well as in that of various contemporary painters. Grossman's exhibition here at TU, "Visual Configurations," will be on view from tomorrow (November 7th) through December 19th in the Alexandre Hogue Gallery. She'll also give a free-to-the-public lecture on her work tomorrow afternoon, Thursday the 7th, at 4pm in TU's Jerri Jones Lecture Hall (which is located in Phillips Hall). An artist's reception will follow her lecture, from 5pm to 7pm. (More details on Grossman's show and lecture here at TU can be found here.)
