EVENT LISTING FOR JUNE 9, 2017
MAINSITE Contemporary Art: Home of the Norman Arts Council (122 E. Main) debuts this year’s Art 365 exhibition from Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition. The culmination of a full year of five artists’ work creating original new works for the show in close work with curator Dana Turkovic. Enjoy thoughtful, innovative exhibitions from Narciso Argüelles, Pete Froslie, Andy Mattern, Amy & James McGirk and Kelly Rogers.
The Depot Gallery (200 S. Jones) celebrates Pamela Husky’s Landscapes in Fiber with a reception from 6 to 9 p.m. This beautiful, unique exhibit continues through June 30. “My process includes dyeing, carding, spinning and felting” Husky explains. “Using silk, mohair, wool, ramie, raffia, I try to convey light, patterns, space and the sense of a place in nature. I build ‘strokes’ of fiber color and texture in the wool using the same thought as a painter applying pigment. But, there is no canvas. I construct the blanket and its surface from the raw fiber. My fascination with the beauty and character of the materials, and with the experiment of the design process grows every time I work with fiber.” Also enjoy classical and jazz guitar music played by Tate Slatton from 7 to 9 p.m.
The 2nd Friday Food Truck Park (Peters between Main and Gray) returns with a variety of Oklahoma food trucks boasting all sorts of street eats!
