Download in PDF Format

The Woody Gaddis Gallery, on the campus of the University of Central Oklahoma, seeks entries for the juried photographic exhibition entitled "The Lighter Side". Through challenging times, art allows its creators and viewers to escape into their imagination or to connect through the absurdity of life. We seek images that showcase the resiliency of creation as a means to uplift.
