Sombra by Almira Hill Grammer
Sombra by Almira Hill Grammer

February 25 - April 21
Oklahoma's spare, open landscape with its expansive sky and wide-open spaces defined by fringes of cedar and oak inspire the artwork of Norman artist Almira Hill Grammer. For her state Capitol exhibit, Structural Integrities, Grammer explores the landscape studded with barns, silos, and vintage buildings. She captures the character in old buildings and reveals their unique personalities through rich color and elimination of details.

"Barns are great visual objects on the landscape," says Grammer. "I get very excited when I spot one teetering on a ridge or nestled in a grove of trees. I'm drawn to their different shapes and sizes and their flat, abstract, geometric planes. The spatial relationship that exists between the barn and its outbuildings is also very intriguing. Barns have a mystique about them, especially their dark interiors that appear as impenetrable black openings. They are unique American icons that signify hope in the future, endurance and a commitment to the land."
