ArtNow Explores the New

OK Contemporary expands its showcase



Douglas Shaw Elder, “Scape 86”

 


Work by emerging, established and internationally renowned Oklahoma artists currently adorns Oklahoma Contemporary Arts Center – ready for its signature ArtNow exhibition.
 

This year sees an expansion from the traditional 10-day affair to five weeks, wrapping up on Jan. 19 with an art sale and party that will bring together the town’s tastemakers and trendsetters for an evening of art, cocktails and entertainment.

Hand-cut paper sculptures exploring personal experiences by New York-born Emily Chase and two-dimensional sculptures inciting the illusion of landscape by Firehouse Art Center director Douglas Shaw Elder are on display at the center’s sixth annual showcase, as is Iranian artist Behnaz Sohrabian’s award-winning “Smile.” Work by award-winning Cherokee potter Karin Walkingstick and Choctaw Nation member Jeremy Dylan Cavin, who has been displayed in New York and Washington D.C., also will go under the spotlight.

“The expanded ArtNow offers a unique opportunity to get people excited about Oklahoma art, and to get collectors excited about investing in Oklahoma art,” explains Curatorial and Exhibitions Director Jennifer Scanlan, who together with guest curator Alyson Atchison selected the 25 artists featured in ArtNow.

A hands-on learning gallery and Tuesday Tours offer interesting insight into the varied works on show, from jewelry and sculpture to printmaking and painting. In addition, the gala party with a purpose on Jan. 19 will see local artists creating new works live.
