RSU Gallery To Feature Work of A. Nigh Herndon

An exhibition of mixed-media work by Tulsa artist A. Nigh Herndon will be held Jan. 16 through Feb. 7 at Rogers State University.

The exhibition, which is free and open to the public, will be held at the Foundations Gallery, located in Baird Hall on the RSU campus in Claremore. Gallery hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

A public reception will be held for the exhibition from 5-7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 16, at the gallery.

Herndon has experienced severe migraine headaches throughout his life and attributes his artistic inspiration to coping with the pain. This exhibition of work was inspired "by an unconscious train of thought produced by dreams and an underlying tone of day-to-day life living with migraine headaches," according to the artist.

"Herndon's work is highly innovative and introspective," said Carter Hall, RSU art instructor. "We felt it would help open up our students' minds in regard to the emotional component of art."
