moses white: july 8th

This month begins our kickoff of a monthly featured maker. We usually re-merchandise our front area for new stuff, but everyone in our store is an artist and we want to give everyone a chance for exposure and an opportunity to make our front area an Installation of sorts.

"Altar L" is an Okie/TX jewelry collaboration of natural rocks and minerals, with pendant symbols. You can wear them for their healing properties or just pure aesthetics.

Our visual artist this month is local artist Moses White. Moses describes his work as "Energetic, Visceral, Introspective. Comic book art makes love to contemporary art." He is inpired by works that give off energy where you can see the passion of the artist in the piece. You can tell by looking at his work, these ideas are below the surface. Personally, we've enjoyed the portraits he's done of random people around town that have popped up on social media sites in the past. Like all of us, Moses just wants to make a living doing what he loves. His group "Noise of the Nameless" will also be playing out front Friday night during the opening.

cole cathey: friday march 12th

This month we are hosting the works of local artist Cole Cathey from Seminole. He works primarily with spray paint and stencil and the pieces are a little more urban than graffiti. Every business on the street is open tomorrow from 7-11pm for the Plaza walk so there will be food, drinks and family friendly entertainment.

We would also like to mention that Dylan and I are very excited about being honored with the very first annual Young Urban Pioneer award which will be presented during the Urban Pioneer Awards luncheon this spring! If you are interested in attending or sponsoring this event, you can find more information on the Plaza District website. This event is more than just a swanky lunch, it also helps the District raise money to continue to improve the district. If you are excited about the changes this area has seen in the past 12 years it would be great if you could consider a donation in any amount help our growth.

His work is chaotic, a little creepy and very colorful at times. Show your support by coming out to the opening from 7-11pm during the 2nd Friday art walk in the Plaza District.

Special for this months art walk we will also be carrying freshly wrapped single roses for your special someone. OVAC will also be in the house promoting Momentum Oklahoma City, their annual exhibition that features Oklahoma artists 30 years and younger.
