Douglass Shaw Elder: OKecoSCAPES

You are here: Home » Future Exhibitions » Douglass Shaw Elder: OKecoSCAPES


APRIL 17th  – JUNE 7th, 2020


OKecoSCAPESis the most recent in the SCAPES series of sculptures and drawings by Elder. SCAPES takes an abstract perspective, observing the cycles of nature that inevitably direct and influence all life forms. The series contemplates specific transformative forces in nature, principally creation and growth and their counterparts, destruction, and erosion. Organic and dark in character, SCAPES conveys the sense of the raw, unalterable power of nature – its splendor, its force, and its sheer magnitude. OKecoSCAPES evolved naturally from exploring Oklahoma’s unique ecosystems.

The public is invited to meet the artists at an Opening Reception on Friday, April 17, 2020,  from 4-7 pm.  There is no charge to attend the Opening.
