Upcoming show at Depot Gallery

NORMAN — Seven members of the art faculty of St. Gregory’s University in Shawnee will display their prints, paintings and photographs in the Depot Gallery next weekend.

Faculty members exhibiting are Sheryl Cozad, M.F.A.; Christopher Cunningham, M.F.A. & Rodica Focseneanu Cunningham, M.F.A.; Brother George Hubl O.S.B.; Carey Hughes, M.F.A.; Madeline M. Rugh, PH.D., A.T.R.; and Tim Sullivan, M.F.A.

Sheryl Cozad is a visual artist, art and art history assistant professor at St. Gregory’s University, as well as an Oklahoma State Artist-in-Residence. Cozad teaches college courses including drawing, painting, design, art history, and humanities. Her artwork consists of drawings, paintings, murals and wood sculpture in a variety of media including oils, acrylics, watercolor, pastels and mixed media. Portraits and narrative human figurative pieces are her main subjects.

Christopher Cunningham and Rodica Focseneanu Cunningham met and married during their graduate school education at the University of New Mexico, where they taught classes in Shop Foundations to both undergraduates and other graduate students. Each holds an MFA in sculpture. In recent years, Christopher and Rodica have worked together as professional artists and iconographers. Their work has become much smaller in scale. Christopher utilizes carving and wood-burning in the creation of the frames for their icons. Over the past few years, they have taught workshops at St. Gregory’s about Romanian reversed glass iconography, an old technique learned from Rodica’s great aunt in Romania. 

Brother George Hubl is an accomplished photographer and serves as photographer for St. Gregory’s University and webmaster for St. Gregory’s Abbey. He is a member of the Professional Photographers of Oklahoma and has been instrumental in bringing their annual summer workshop to the campus of St. Gregory’s for the last six years. He assists with the university photography classes.
