NSU-Broken Arrow hosts dd duvall art exhibition during September

The work of dd duvall, including this piece, will be on display in the NSUBA Vistors Center Gallery during September.

(Broken Arrow, Oklahoma) - Northeastern State University-Broken Arrow will host an art exhibit titled “sun & flowers,” during September in the Visitors Center Gallery of the Administrative Services Building, celebrating the work of NSU alumnus Duane (dd) Duvall.

Duvall received a Master of Business Administration from NSU in May 2013. While Duvall has spent many years in corporate analyst roles, he said he is fortunate he can switch the analytical side of his brain to the off position for his creative skills to be turned loose.

As an artist, Duvall paints under the name dd duvall and titles all his works in lowercase to differentiate his work from what he says is worthy uppercase work of the masters such as Rembrandt, Monet, Sargent, DaVinci and Picasso.

He favors heavy body acrylic paintings, inks and anything else needed to achieve the desired result.

As a young child, Duvall says he was fascinated by and often drew the sun.

“I also had a natural affinity for meadows and the flowers filling them,” Duvall said. “I just felt like this would be a great chance to share my passion on canvas with others. Hopefully they can see that energy and life in each piece.”
