Event Details

“Interrupted Paths” is an exhibition of new artworks by artist Donnie Copeland, who uses the material and processes of painting to explore a new approach to the subject matter of landscape. Shying away from direct associations with representation, Copeland expands the genre to incorporate a broad variety of environmental stimuli — from the patterns found on and in the earth to the notion of sounds and rhythms as landscape. Working primarily with painted paper, Copeland’s non-objective collaged canvases emphasize pattern, texture, color and mark.

Copeland’s paintings have been shown at the Aughinbaugh Gallery of Messiah College in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, the Alexandre Hogue Gallery at the University of Tulsa in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Alfred University’s Fosdick Nelson Gallery in Alfred, New York, the Kansas City Artist’s Coalition, the Arkansas Arts Center and exhibits in Louisiana, Minnesota, Missouri, North Carolina, South Carolina and Texas.

Donnie Copeland earned a BA in Studio arts from Ouachita Baptist University and an MFA in painting from the University of Dallas. Copeland is currently Associate Professor of Visual Arts and Chair of the Department of Visual Arts at Ouachita Baptist University where he teaches painting, drawing, and art history. He and his wife and three children live in Arkadelphia, Arkansas.
