Alumni Art Show
June 27 - July 25
Held annually each June in conjunction with the Wewoka High School Reunion, the Alumni Art Show showcases the art of one or more Wewoka graduates.
The Seminole Nation Museum is proud to announce that Richard Billingsley, a 1965 Wewoka High School graduate, is the featured artist in our 2015 WHS Alumni Art Show.
After graduating from WHS, Richard went on to earn a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Oklahoma State University. He taught elementary and secondary art in Wewoka and Holdenville school systems for 35 years, during which he was affectionately known as "Mr. B" to his students.
In 2008 Richard received the Arts and Education Award at the Governor’s Arts Awards which is sponsored by the Oklahoma Arts Council. Richard continues to share his gift by teaching oil painting classes at The Holdenville Society for Painters and Sculptors and working from his home studio in Wewoka.
The art show will feature 27 pieces of art, primarily oils and acrylics. A copy of the book illustrated by the artist, “Emmitt Mouse Plays Santa,” will also be on display, as well as his Governor’s Art Award.
The month-long show runs from June 27 through July 25 in the museum's Margaret Jane Norman Gallery.
A public reception, with light refreshments, will be held Saturday, June 27 at the museum from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. Everyone is invited to join us!
