“Almost Home” exhibit opening at Art Center

Ponca City Now - September 2, 2015 9:01 pm

A new exhibit, "Almost Home," by Ponca City native Peter Hay opens Thursday at the Ponca City Art Center, 819 East Central Avenue.

A reception will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. with food and drinks, and there will be an artist talk at 6 p.m. He will speak about how growing up in Ponca City influenced his work

Hay’s exhibit "Almost Home" is influenced by both nature and industrialism. His paintings and prints, large and small, tell stories of both the stark beauty and inevitable destruction that comes when nature and industry converge on each other.

Hay’s art will be available for purchase during the exhibition. The exhibition continues through Oct. 9.
