MO Artists Visit OK Museum & Paint

Artists from nine states are part of the Missouri Valley Impressionist Society (MVIS). Some of those folks recently spent a weekend in Tulsa viewing major exhibitions and painting. Check out what they did together.

“The Missouri Valley Impressionist Society (MVIS) organized a ‘Scenic Journey’ weekend of viewing art and plein air painting in Tulsa, Oklahoma, outside their region,” reports Brent Seevers, a spokesperson for the group, which includes artists from Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas, and Missouri. “We were fortunate to see the Edgar Payne exhibit at the Gilcrease Museum [on view through March 24]. Kimbell McCurry and Gregory Summers organized the weekend trip with fellow members and friends from Kansas, Missouri, and Iowa.”

Seevers goes on, “Making the experience more memorable, several MVIS members stayed behind for a little plein air painting on the grounds of the museum before heading back home. These MVIS trips and painting events are hosted by members every month and are open to anyone who would like to tag along, members and nonmembers. By the way, the group will be presenting an exhibition at the Southwind Art Gallery in Topeka, Kansas, in May and June, with the opening reception scheduled for May 3, 2013.” For more information, visit
