February 11 - April 7 For this exhibit, titled Osage County, photographer Grant McClintock focuses on the region of northeast Oklahoma he currently calls home. McClintock's images capture the uniqueness of the area, highlighting the people and landscape that trademark the county.
McClintock says he finds the landscape of Osage County familiar and comfortable. "It is a complex but quiet landscape – a subtle mixture of texture and tone, which the eye can fail to appreciate at first glance," he describes. "A fall pasture might appear to be a monotonous brown mass as you drive past. But hike through it and you will discover that particular brown is composed of a hundred shades of red, green, blue, and yellow."
