Jerry Poppenhouse Art on Display
January 3 - January 29
The Jerry Poppenhouse collection of photographs on canvas art was donated to Elder Care to be used to benefit our programs.
Nine of the 73 pieces on display will be included in a 2023 online auction. All proceeds benefit Elder Care. Following the close of the in-person exhibit at the BCC on January 29, 2023, the online auction will continue until February 14, 2023. No in-person bidding.
This fundraiser is made possible through the generous support of the Bartlesville Community Center and Jerry Poppenhouse.
About Jerry Poppenhouse
Poppenhouse worked as a creative photo designer for Phillips Petroleum Co. in Bartlesville. His work for Phillips has taken him worldwide and brought him face-to-face with international celebrities.
He has observed tribal rituals of African natives and battled minus-85-degree temperatures in Alaska. He’s been buffeted by 60-foot waves in the North Sea and blinded by the darkness of the Amazon jungle in Peru. All for the sake of visual recording.
And he has photographed Luciano Pavarotti, Walt Disney, Robert Redford, and a wealth of intriguing faces.
He has received the Chicago Award of Excellence, the Cine Golden Eagle, the United States Industrial Silver Screen Award, the American Advertising Federation Award, the Graphex Proclamation in Photography, the Addy Award for Excellence in Advertising, and the Oklahoma Film and Television Producers Association Gold Award.
