The Let’s Talk About It, Oklahoma series of “The Oklahoma Experience: From Wilderness to Metropolis,” will discuss Catalogue on Thursday, October 22, 2020, at 6:00 PM at the Atoka County Library.
It’s an August afternoon in 1930s Oklahoma. The catalogues arrive at the Conchartee post office. The folks look them over, live out their dreams, and wait for reality to come back with the mailman.
The scholar presenting the discussion is Amy Gantt. Gantt is an Assistant Professor at Southeastern Oklahoma State University (SOSU), where she teaches in both the Art and Native Studies departments.
Prior to working at SOSU, Gantt was employed by the Chickasaw Nation for 13 years. Gantt grew up in a military family and has lived all over the United States.
She completed her bachelor’s degree at the University of North Texas and earned her Master’s degrees from both Texas Woman’s University and Southeastern Oklahoma State University. Gantt teaches native studies, art history, and art studio classes.
As an artist, she works primarily in clay and photography. Her work has been exhibited in Oklahoma and Texas.
