Case Sisters Will Show Artwork, Photography at Nescatunga
Angelia Case Paints, Draws, Takes Photos
Angelia Case, a fine artist living in Alva, will be showing her work at the Nescatunga Arts Festival on June 4.
She enjoys several forms of art from oil and acrylic painting to black and white and colored pencil drawing to photography and will be showing a little bit of all of this at the festival.
Lately, her subject of choice for painting is roses, but she also has fun with other flowers, sunsets and even chili peppers.
The majority of her pencil portraits are commissioned works that have included beloved pets to people.
Her favorite things to photograph are sunsets and clouds.
Case earned a degree in art from Northwestern Oklahoma State University. For several years now, she has been working at Northwestern, currently as an academic projects assistant/media specialist and administrative assistant to Dr. James Bell, dean of faculty and associate vice president for academics.
For 20 years now, she has served as the sponsor for the NWOSU Art Society. In the spring of 2023, she’ll help the student group in setting up the 20th campus art show since the group began.
She and her sister, Valarie Case, saw a need on campus a few years ago and co-founded the Campus Cabinet Food Pantry for Northwestern students and employees.
Besides all of her campus responsibilities, Case has taken on serving as the registration chair for this year’s Nescatunga Arts Festival.

Case to Display Photography, Paper Bead Jewelry at Nescatunga
Valarie Case, a photographer living in Alva and originally from Waynoka, will be showing her photography at the Nescatunga Arts Festival.
She has a long-standing connection with Northwestern Oklahoma State University as an alum and in the university relations department. She can be spotted at many of the campus events with a camera in her hands creatively documenting memories of that moment.
In her off-hours, she enjoys capturing all the goodness that is northwest Oklahoma and the region for wall art. She also enjoys taking headshots, senior photo sessions, family sessions, birthdays and anniversary celebrations. Case’s occasional vacation shots are a big bonus!
As a different way to express her creativity, Case started making jewelry. As a way to recycle unused paper products like junk mail catalogs and magazines, she makes very colorful paper beads. She uses these special beads along with other types of manufactured beads to make very unique necklaces and earrings. She’ll have these creations available in her booth as well.
She volunteers her time in many ways outside of regular work including serving as publicity chair for the Nescatunga Arts Festival, as a co-founder of the Campus Cabinet food pantry at Northwestern, and helping the Northwestern campus arts organization, the NWOSU Art Society.
