Santa Anna: Numunu: The Comanche Way, Art Exhibition & Sale

March 26, 2015 (All day) to March 28, 2015 (All day)
Numunu: The Comanche Way

Tim Saupitty, self-taught Comanche artist from Lawton, Oklahoma, was selected Artist of the Year by the Lawton Arts and Humanities Council in appreciation for his contributions to the cultural life of Oklahoma. Mr. Saupitty is proud of his Comanche heritage, tribal customs, stories, and historical accounts, which he portrays in his work, capturing the simplicity and beauty of the Comanche way of life. He considers himself a graphic historian, visually interpreting stories told by tribal elders. Saupitty’s art invites the observer to see and feel historic events as a record for future generations. He wants the viewer to be a part of the painting— surrounded by warriors, by soft-breathing winds, by the rustle of feathers, or by the pounding of ponies hooves dashing past. His soul-melting scenes are an invitation to become lost in contemplation, where the mind races but the tongue is silent. 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
