An Oil Painting Workshop will be held at Western Oklahoma State College, Room B19, on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday evenings, March 7, 8, and 10, 2016, from 6 to 9 p.m. The instructor for this workshop will be local artist, Sue Messerly.

Sue Messerly is a well-known and respected artist in the Altus community and is known for her beautiful oil landscape paintings. She and her husband spend many days a year in the nearby Wichita Mountains, camping and hiking. Her love of the rugged scenery and wildlife found there is expressed in many of her paintings. Sue majored in fine art at Colorado University and at North Texas State University. She has also taken workshops from Tony Couch, Rick McClure, Ben Konis, John Buducin, and Jill Carver. Sue often paints outdoors in plein air. She uses these paintings and photographs she has taken to paint more detailed works in her studio. Sue began painting in watercolor then progressed to painting in oils over the last several years. She regularly exhibits her work at the library and at the Museum of the Western Prairie.
