A new art exhibit has opened in the Visitor Lobby of the Crystal Bridge by two Oklahoma artists, Jason Wilson and Sarah Atlee

Artists’ statements:

Jason Wilson produces Perceptual Art, the artist must: conceive; mathematically calculate; plot; draw, and finally paint his design on canvas. Jason says his designs are about building the painting as much as painting the painting … involving hours of construction. To this end, Wilson developed his own special acrylic paint formula to hand paint his canvas. The result is a technically perfect, remarkably flawless finished canvas.

Perceptual art asks its audience to visually or emotionally interact with the design. Some perceptual art appears to shimmer and shift while other designs may, for example, provide a sense of serenity and grace. By bringing his designs to life, Jason Wilson hopes to delight and inspire others.

Sarah Atlee After 20 years as a professional painter, Sarah Atlee pivoted to focus on quilting as her primary art form. Atlee is known for her colorful and geometric compositions, rich with energy and free-form texture. Using improvisational patchwork and reclaimed textiles, Atlee creates mindful, joyful quilts that are at home on both art gallery walls and your cozy couch.
