Peter Hay is a father, arts administrator, teacher, visual/conceptual artist, and amateur videographer. This personal body of work is based upon embellishments of current ecological issues, which could be described as environmental realism. Whenever the opportunity arises, he likes to work with whatever community he find myself in or with any artists willing to collaborate.


Currently, Hay is co-director/arts manager of PROArtes Mexico, a company supporting the creation/promotion of exemplary Mexican art and fostering the bilateral exchange of art/artists between the United States and Mexico. While in Durango, CO, Peter was the Exhibits Director of Durango Arts Center, Artist/Owner of Studio & Gallery, and Arts Instructor at Pueblo Community College. He also took part in multiple art exhibits at Studio & Gallery and was fortunate enough to have a solo exhibit in the Friends of the Arts Library and Gallery 301 in Ruston, LA. In Tulsa, OK, Hay was Director of Development and Public Relations for the contemporary art incubator and exhibition space, Living Arts of Tulsa, Inc. In addition, Peter has several times been a guest teaching artist at the Philbrook Museum of Art, and served as a member of both the Tulsa Art Studio Tour Committee and Living Arts’ Gallery Committee. While living in Tulsa he exhibited his work at Living Arts of Tulsa, Frame of Mind Gallery in Ruston, LA, and the University of Louisiana Monroe.


Hay’s academic career began at Northern Oklahoma College where he received an Associates of Art, continued with a Bachelors of Art from Northeastern State University, and lastly with a Master of Fine Arts from Louisiana Tech University. While attending LA Tech University, Hay held a Full Teaching Assistantship and graduated as the Academic Excellence Honoree for the School of Design. In addition, he completed several murals, taught summer arts camps and workshops, worked as a freelance artist and illustrator, participated in multiple group and solo exhibitions both nationally and internationally. These include exhibitions at First Street Gallery in New York City, the Louisiana State Archive, University of Louisiana Monroe, Palacio de Belles Artes, Rotunda in Manizales, Columbia, and Lessedra Art Gallery in Sofia, Bulgaria, and won Curator’s Choice Award at Momentum OKC 2016, a survey of Oklahoma artists 30 and under.

PechaKucha Tulsa Night 11

Living Arts of Tulsa 


PechaKucha is a presentation format of 20 slides at 20 seconds each about creative process. Below you will find my talk from April 2015 about a few pieces from my Scientific Introspective body of work.


Big. Small. Everything. We are surrounded by and interwoven with layered natural history. This complexity is my muse and never ceases to trigger new ideas for my art making. In this talk, I discuss the processes and inspirations for three artworks that appear to be vastly different, but stem from a common curiosity.
