Join the Oklahoma Hall of Fame | Gaylord-Pickens Museum and Inclusion in Art on June 23 at 6:00 pm for an artist talk with Al Bostick. Register today for this live Zoom event where you will be able to learn more about Bostick’s inspiration and processes. We will look at and discuss several artworks included in the recent exhibition Inclusion in Art: Spirit of Color exhibit at the Gaylord-Pickens Museum.
Working in paint and some mixed media, Bostick’s works explore African archetypes and symbolism and the expressive faces of black subjects. Bold and dramatic, many of his works are composed of intense color and words, while expressive lines and high contrast color and values dominate others. In addition to being an accomplished artist, Bostick is a musician, storyteller, playwright, actor and director. A self-proclaimed modern-day Griot, Bostick’s dramatic works reveal his ties to storytelling and theater.
