Moving Forward Opening Reception

Friday, April 26 from 6 to 9 p.m.

“Deliberately silencing the internal chatter and not overthinking. Conscious, but not over-trying. With this approach, things just seem to happen—it’s where all the substance is found and often with more reward than I could have hoped for.” – Christie Owen

Join us for the opening reception of “Moving Forward” by artists Lauren Midgley and Christie Owen.

Individual Artists of Oklahoma is thrilled to share this work with our community. Both artists explore their progress and forward momentum with vastly different approaches, but share a kindred sense of curiosity and wonder. From the subtle surrealism of Midgley’s photographs, to the exuberant textures of Owen’s bold abstractions, these two take the viewer on a journey through their processes and experiences. 

One Man Group Show

Mat Reed

January 18 through February 10

The title of the show is a self-acknowledgment of my tendency to move from, and between, one idea and the next; jumping between the representational and the abstract. Working in this way as opposed to the conventional mode of creating a body of work comprised of different solutions to, basically, a singular idea; leaves me open to follow a variety of visual ideas further without becoming completely tethered to one expression.
