OVAC Art Studio Tour coming!

(OK, so I realize that lately I've been blatantly plagiarizing every artist and organization in Tulsa to get content for this blog, but it's all I've had time for. Original writing coming soon, I promise.)

Tulsa Art Studio Tour

The Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition’s upcoming Tulsa Art Studio Tour will open the studio doors of 11 Tulsa artists in 9 studios. Visitors can get a glimpse into the creative process and see art in action April 4-5 from noon until 5 p.m each day.

For art lovers, such access to the inner workings of artists is a rare opportunity to see the other side of the canvas. Visitors will have the chance to talk with artists, view and buy artwork, and see art being made. The tour is self-guided and presented by the Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition.

The artists range from photographers and painters to ceramicists and metalsmiths, representing a variety of stages in their art careers. Tour artists include:
• Kevin Byrne, ceramics
• Lynn Clark, painting
• Glenn Herbert Davis, photography and installation
• Chris Owens, painting and mixed media
• Mary Russell, painting
Cindy Swanson, mosaics
• Kristal Tomshany, painting and mixed media
• Steadman and Peggy Upham, painting and metalsmith
• David Varmecky, photography
Craig Wood, ceramics

A kick-off celebration and exhibit will be held at the Frame Maker Art Gallery at 6201 E 61st St, on Friday, March 27 from 5-8 p.m. This event is free and open to the public, and guests will have a chance to see examples of artwork from artists on the tour, meet the artists, and purchase tour tickets. This exhibit runs from March 17 – April 11.

Tickets to the tour include a map and are $5 in advance and $10 at the door. Tickets will be available online here, or by phone at (405) 232-6991, or at any of the Tour studios the days of the Tour.
