An Artist's World

The Pryor Art Gallery's first virtual exhibit is titled “An Artist's World” and will take viewers into the studios of six African-American artists. The exhibit showcases the various artist's techniques, use of color and composition, their different approaches to creativity and individual artistic philosophies.
