About the Artist
Jim Lacy Redcorn, or Walanke (No Sense), was an Osage artist born in Pawhuska, Oklahoma. He worked as a teacher, textile designer, illustrator, and painter, and he also served as the artist-in-residence at the Oklahoma Arts and Humanities Council. Mr. Redcorn was educated at University of Oklahoma and University of Arizona, receiving BA from Northeastern State University in Oklahoma in 1958.
Redcorn most frequently used oil paint, textiles, silk screens, and watercolors. He sold his first piece of artwork at age 13, but started painting at the early age of five. He thought his western-styled artwork belonged under the category of realism.
His paintings were exhibited at the University of Arizona, the University of Oklahoma, Scottsdale National Indian Art Exhibition, the annual American Indian Exposition, and many other galleries and museums. The artist also had solo-exhibitions of his work at the Heard Museum in Phoenix, The Fort in Denver and the Southern Plains Indian Museum and Craft Center in Oklahoma.
In 1962 Redcorn was honored by the Association of Interior Decorators and Designers with the International Award for Design. He also received various awards for his artwork at the Heard Museum Guild Indian Fair and Market in 1963, the annual American Indian Exposition in 1967 and 1978 and at the Philbrook Museum of Art in 1968 and 1969.
