The Friends of the Art Library are pleased to present a solo exhibit of artwork by DAC Exhibits Director, Peter Hay.

Peter Hay is an arts administrator, teacher, visual and conceptual artist. His personal body of work is based upon embellishments of current ecological issues, which could be described as environmental realism.

Hay’s academic career began at Northern Oklahoma College where he received his Associates of Art, continued with a Bachelors of Art from Northeastern State University, and lastly with a Master of Fine Arts from Louisiana Tech University. While attending LA Tech University, Peter held a Full Teaching Assistantship and graduated as the Academic Excellence Honoree for the School of Design. In addition, he has completed several murals, taught summer arts camps and workshops, worked as a freelance artist and illustrator, participated in multiple group and solo exhibitions both nationally and internationally. These include exhibitions at First Street Gallery in New York City, the Louisiana State Archive, University of Louisiana Monroe, Palacio de Belles Artes, Rotunda in Manizales, Columbia, and Lessedra Art Gallery in Sofia, Bulgaria. Most recently, Hay won Curator’s Choice Award at Momentum OKC 2016, a survey of Oklahoma artists 30 and under.

Hay is currently Exhibits Director of the Durango Arts Center in Durango, CO. He was previously Director of Development and Public Relations for the contemporary art incubator and exhibition space, Living Arts of Tulsa, Inc. While in Tulsa, he has several times been a guest teaching artist at the Philbrook Museum of Art, and served as a member of both the Tulsa Art Studio Tour Committee and Living Arts’ Gallery Committee.
