NOW EXHIBITING: Renee Dotson, "A Retrospective"

5/2-5/31 2023

Opening Reception May 4, 2023

Renee Dotson is an Oklahoma native and painter whose works are primarily  abstraction.  Her love of painting began with a watercolor workshop at Ghost Ranch in New Mexico.  She has taken numerous other workshops since that beginning, with highlights being workshops in Italy, France, and Spain.  Renee is currently working with acrylics, collage, using some natural pigments which can be made from rocks such as the ochers and iron oxides found in abundance in western Oklahoma. 

Renee was a founding member and past president of the Green Country Watercolor Society.  She has exhibited at the Philbrook Museum, the University of Tulsa, Rogers State University, NEOSU Broken Arrow, The Sherwin Miller Museum of Jewish Art, and many other galleries.



Anyone fortunate enough to have known Barbara knew that she was a fountain of energy, vision, and positivity. She was “all in” when it came to developing the plans for our history museum back in 2003, and she was always present in planning and vision development meetings for downtown revitalization. She served on the city-chamber seminal committee that was the grass roots of re-creating our downtown into Broken Arrow’s beautiful Rose District.

Barbara encouraged both city leaders and history volunteers and sought out ways to make a difference with her quiet, personal contacts, usually after meetings, always moving “behind the scenes”. Her passion stemmed from her love of history, the arts, and the city. That love was a family trait that began over a century ago.
