Oklahoma City, OK (January 14, 2022) – Each First Friday of the month, the community is invited to stroll the historic Paseo Arts District. All of the Paseo galleries are open, some with abbreviated hours, and most will be open late for First Friday. Restaurants will be open for dining in, patio seating and takeout. All guests are encouraged to wear a mask indoors, practice social distancing and use provided hand sanitizer when shopping. First Friday is February 4, 6-9pm.  
This month, the Paseo Arts and Creativity Center (PACC) is pleased to feature two exhibitions. Gallery I will feature Poetic City, a high energy and inclusive performance arts entity that supports all forms of creative expression. As their second exhibition at the PACC, this year they introduce “Perception” a show that represents how artists see the world today from technology, health, spirituality, human engagement, social awareness, education and much more. Poetic City’s goal is to recognize that love and ambition come in all shapes and sizes, they work to coordinate and promote professional platforms for those seeking a creative outlet for their passion.

Gallery II displays the PAA’s Annual Members’ Show showcasing the best art works in all visual mediums created by our supportive members. This year’s juror is Nicole Moan, an active artist with over 20 years of experience in wearable ceramic, three-dimensional wall sculptures and mixed media work. She seeks to show the world how we are all connected and have unique beauty through art. Moan will present awards at the opening reception during First Friday at 7pm. Both exhibits in the PACC will run through February 26, 2022. 

Oklahoma City’s Unique Arts Destination, the Paseo Arts District is located between NW 27th & 30th Streets and Walker & Hudson. Each First Friday, Paseo galleries offer special themed exhibits, guest artists and a variety of live entertainment - all within walking distance. 10 restaurants and a handful of other shops round out the Paseo’s distinctive atmosphere.
