Sunday, December 15th, 5 - 8 pm.The exhibit continues
December 16th & 17th (5:00pm - 7:30pm)
One of the great Tulsa Artists (who just happens to be 93 years old) is having their "Last Picture Show" at Liggett Studio starting this coming Sunday. The show is only up through Tuesday (between open times for BOTANICA), so go by and check out this legendary artist's work! NYLAJO HARVEY!
Nylajo's love affair with art began at the young age of 4 or 5 when her lack of spelling was replaced with drawings of the words she could not spell. She attended Purdue University prior to winning a scholarship to the Kansas Art Institute. In 1959 with the birth of her first son, Nylajo pursued her love affair with painting full time.
Nylajo's medium is oil on canvas in the expressionistic style. She has exhibited in Tulsa for over 60 years as well as other states. Her work not only hangs in many Tulsa homes but in homes in other countries.
At the age of 93 you will still find Nylajo at her easel.
