Roger Disney, OSU Alumnus Exhibits at State Capitol

Tulsa artist Roger Disney's love of travel is showcased in the cityscapes which make up this exhibit, titled Cityscapes. His loose and expressive style of painting, achieved by the use of palette knives rather than brushes, gives life to the energy often found in downtown city areas.
