Now Showing in The Depot Gallery - George Bogart - "The Garden Chronicles"

Through November 2, 2018 @ The Depot

George Bogart - Pollen 2002

George Bogart (1933-2005) was a brilliant and prodigious painter with an innate feel for color and space. His work was exhibited all over the United States throughout his career and is included in numerous private and public collections. Bogart was born in Fond du Lac, a suburb of Duluth, Minnesota.  After receiving his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Minnesota at Duluth in 1956, he moved to Seattle, Washington, where he did his graduate work, receiving his Master of Fine Arts degree in 1959.  He then spent eight years in Austin, Texas, teaching at the University of Texas.  Moving on from there, he taught for three years at Penn State University before landing at the University of Oklahoma. In 1978 he took a year’s leave to accept a Visiting Artist position at the University of California, Berkeley. Returning to Norman, he continued to teach at OU until his retirement in 1997.  As Professor Emeritus, he was twice asked to return to teach drawing classes.  Between his retirement and his death in 2005 he enjoyed doing what he’d always wanted to do: be a full-time artist.  The Depot Gallery is privileged to offer a showing of Bogart’s work, curated by his widow Elyse, opening September 14 in conjunction with 2nd Friday Art Walk, and continuing through November 2.

Connie works in acrylic, watercolor, pastel & prints, but is perhaps best known for her delicate watercolors. “Most of my work is ethereal, dreamy and narrative” says Seabourn, who became a full-time artist in 1980. She has exhibited extensively, is in many notable collections and has won numerous awards.
