SHAWNEE – The Mabee-Gerrer Museum of Art will be offering free admission during June, July, and August thanks to the generous donations of the Avedis Foundation, BancFirst, Ad Astra foundation, and St. Gregory's Abbey.

“This is a great opportunity to visit Tutu, the portrait of Pope Pius X, and all your favorites.  You can come as often as you want to see the art and enjoy the 70-degree temperature inside the museum,” said Dane Pollei, MGMoA Director.

The Mathematical, Metaphysical, Mirthful, and Musical Paintings of Gregory Horndeski will be on exhibit until July 1. Horndeski was an Associate Professor in the Department of Applied Math at the University of Waterloo, before starting to paint in 1981.  He proposed his scalar-tensor theory in 1974. A self-taught painter, Horndeski lists Van Gogh, Magritte and Pollock as primary influences in shaping his expressionistic style.

The Mabee-Gerrer Museum of Art is located on St. Gregory’s campus, 1900 W. MacArthur St. in Shawnee. The museum is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays and 1 to 4 p.m. on Sundays. Visit www.mgmoa.org for more information.

This exhibition is funded in part by the Avedis Foundation, Oklahoma Arts Council, ArtWorks, Allied Arts, and the Mr. and Mrs. R. J. Wissinger Memorial Fund. For accommodations on the basis of disability or more information on this exhibit, call the museum at (405) 878-5300.
