Department of Art, Graphic Design and Art History
108 Bartlett Center for the Visual Arts
Oklahoma State University
The departmental art gallery first opened in 1965. Now the Gardiner Art Gallery, it has grown to become an integral part of the department’s teaching environment as well as a place for the university and general community to experience the visual arts. Exhibits have varied from local student and faculty exhibitions, to national shows like the biennial Cimarron National Works on Paper Exhibition, to international offerings of Japanese and German prints, art and artifacts from India, Native American artists exhibitions, and a sand painting (mandala) created in the gallery by Tibetan Buddhist monks.
The permanent collection began with graphic prints of the founder of the department, Doel Reed, and has since grown to include over 300 pieces by such national and international artists as Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, Larry Rivers, Robert Motherwell, Alexander Calder, Salvador Dalí and Imogen Cunningham.
