Carol Beesley’s artistic practice joins photography, textiles, and painting to produce vibrant landscapes documenting Oklahoma and the Southwest.

Carol Beesley, M.F.A., is a Professor Emeritus of Art at The University of Oklahoma where she taught Painting, Drawing, Ceramics, Art History and Humanities for 24 years before moving to Santa Fe in 1997. A recipient of a National Endowment for the Humanities Fellowship to study Art History at Columbia, Beesley received an M.A. in Ceramics from the University of Dallas and an M.A. in American Literature from the University of Kentucky, before receiving her M.F.A. from the University of California in Los Angeles. In 2007, after Beesley received a commission to create four monumental paintings for the Catlett Music Center on the University of Oklahoma’s Norman Campus as well as several murals for the Schusterman Learning Center on the University’s Campus in Tulsa, Beesley moved back to Oklahoma. Known for her distinctive large paintings of the American landscape, Beesley is a serious collector of photographs and contributor to the collection at the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art at the University of Oklahoma.
