The Paseo Arts District, Oklahoma’s popular arts destination, hosts a monthly event called First Friday Gallery Walk. Visitors are invited to stroll throughout the district and immerse themselves in new art exhibits, special guest artists and live entertainment all within walking distance. Along with the artwork, visitors have a chance to dine at any of the ten restaurants that make up the Paseo’s distinct atmosphere.
The Paseo Arts & Creativity Center is excited to announce new exhibitions for March with the Studio Gallery Artists in Gallery I and The March Show in Gallery II. An extended run of curated artwork by Michi Susan (1925-2020) will be held in Gallery III. An opening reception will be held during First Friday on March 3 from 6-9 pm at 3024 Paseo.
In Gallery I, a group of artists from The Studio Gallery OKC will display a diverse collection of artwork. The Studio Gallery OKC was founded over 30 years ago by a group of local artists cooperatively sharing the expense and work of operating their gallery on Britton Road. Featured artists include Curtis Gruel, Christy Everest, Jane White, Phebe Kallstrom, Ike Bennett, Dodge Hill, Jessie Wallentine and Whitney Ingram. Whether you enjoy contemporary, figurative or landscapes, the Studio Gallery Artists will display art to complement any décor.
Gallery II will host the third annual all-medium juried exhibition, The March Show: Empowering the Feminine Spirit. This show will explore feminism in visual culture, idols, women marching, images of identity and feminine history, showcasing artwork by 34 artists. This year’s juror is Erinn Gavaghan, art historian and Executive Director of the Norman Arts Council. Gavaghan will be hosting an evening juror talk discussing women in art history and the themes of the selected artwork. This talk is free and open to the public at 6:30 pm on Tuesday, March 21 at the PACC at 3024 Paseo.
