Goodwell, Okla. -- Oklahoma Panhandle State University’s 10th annual Art Jubilee, sponsored by the OPSU Art Department, Images Art Club and the Oklahoma Arts Council, will be held April 8th through the 10th on the campus of Oklahoma Panhandle State University in Goodwell, Oklahoma. This year we are inviting interested artists and art teachers to participate by attending our free artist’s workshops. The first one will be held on April the 8th in room 102 in Hesper Hall featuring Doug Quarels of Tucumcari, New Mexico. Doug and his wife Sharon have painted more than 30 murals on walls in Tucumcari and Doug has had work accepted in the prestigious Leigh-Yawkey Woodson Museums “Birds in Art” show. The workshop will begin at 9:30 a.m. and go until 2:00 p.m. with a short break for lunch.
The second free workshop will be held on Thursday, April the 10th. The featured artist conducting the workshop will be Jim Romberg. Jim’s workshop will be held in room 214 of Hesper Hall and will begin at 9:30 a.m. and last until 2:00 p.m. with a short break for lunch. Jim will be demonstrating the art of Raku pottery. His work is featured in the Fritzler Fine Arts gallery in Mesa, Colorado and he has produced a one hour video titled “Raku Ceramics with Jim Romberg”.
Both artists will be on campus for the high school day during the OPSU Art Jubilee on April 9th and they will be featured during the day for the visiting high school students and teachers. Organizers will also recognize Debbie Long for her contributions and dedication to the OPSU Art Department.
