ANADARKO, OKLAHOMA: The Southern Plains Indian Museum, administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior, Indian Arts and Crafts Board, will feature an exhibit of paintings by Ed Hoosier.  The exhibition will run from September 29 to November 17, 2017.  The exhibition is free and open to the public.

 

Ed Hoosier, an enrolled member of the Comanche Tribe of Oklahoma, is a skilled graphic designer and artist.  He is a graduate of Elgin High School and attended Cameron University, Lawton, Oklahoma.  Currently he resides in Lawton, Oklahoma, where he works as a professional graphic designer.

 

Although he first began drawing as a child, Hoosier did not begin painting in earnest until 2012. After reconnecting with his family history, he began painting memories from stories told to him as a child by his great grandmother, Maude Tocsi Blevins. While he has experimented with a variety of painting media, Hoosier prefers acrylic craft paint for its versatility and workability. He carefully transfers his thoughts and memories to each canvas he paints.
 
 
For Hoosier, art is a way of connecting with the past while staying grounded in the present. Through his artwork, he portrays images of a troubled past and a hopeful future. Hoosier hopes that viewers of his work are able to see beauty in the most unlikely places and faces.
