The use of different materials, textures, surfaces, and unconventional elements will be represented through painting, printmaking, and sculpture. The exhibit features artwork by Eugene Bavinger, T. C. Cannon, Doc Tate Nevaquoyah, Willard Stone, Derald T. Swinford, Jack Vallee, and others. The program will explore their perceptions about the changes that were taking place in the world.
