A Retrospective

February 18 - April 14
Oklahoma artist Regina Murphy's prolific art career has spanned more than 40 years. At age 91, Murphy's new exhibit, A Retrospective, now on display in the state Capitol's East Gallery, features a sampling of her vast portfolio from different periods of her career. 

Murphy's passion for art is illustrated by the evolution of her style and experimentation with subject matter and various media including pastel, oil, watercolor, and acrylic painting. 

"I experiment often with different techniques and subject matter," Murphy said. "This variety holds my interest and keeps me always looking forward to the next project." 

Murphy continues to be diligent about creating artwork, spending most weekdays working in her studio. After many years of "plein air painting" (painting on site in the open air), she now only paints in the studio – usually from photographs or recollection.
