TULSA, Okla. (AP) — The Gilcrease Museum in Tulsa is exhibiting a selection of works by artist Allan Houser to commemorate the centennial of his birth.

The exhibition, titled, "Form and Line: Allan Houser's Sculpture and Drawings," opened Thursday and continues until June 29.

Museum directors say a collection of his sculptures, sketchbooks and charcoal and pastel drawings on display will honor the life of Houser, a Chiricahua Apache artist.

One of Houser's most significant works, The Sacred Rain Arrow, is among his best-known pieces, and can be found in front of the museum. Its image has been reproduced on Oklahoma's license plates.

Most of the exhibition works at Gilcrease have been loaned by Allan Houser Inc., the artist's estate in Santa Fe, N.M.
