Cameron University Professor of Art Katherine Liontas-Warren will have a solo art exhibit at Paseo Originals Art Gallery in Oklahoma City, kicking off with an opening reception on Friday, November 1. The exhibition, which will feature 27 of Liontas-Warren’s original paintings and drawings, will run through November 30. Paseo Originals Art Gallery is located at 2920 Paseo Street in Oklahoma City’s Paseo Art District.
“Although art may be ephemeral, I love creating it, and each work is a self-discovering fulfillment that continues to change and grow every day of my life,” Liontas-Warren writes in her artist’s statement for the exhibition.

She has been honored with the Bhattacharya Research Excellence Award and with induction into the Cameron University Alumni Association Faculty Hall of Fame.
