This month, Oklahoma Contemporary has taken a look at Oklahoma comic book artists with its exhibit, Comix OK.
Oklahoma comics artists, including Arigon Starr, Melanie Gillman, Jerry Bennett, Dorshak Bloch, Johnnie Diacon and Natasha Alterici, have had their work on display, as have more than a dozen artists chosen from an open call: Kent Clark, Tony Thunder, Steve Hill, Laura McPheeters, Jeremy Nelson, Kyle Van Osdol, Brent Learned, Shyanne Tilley, Justin Stier, Mandy Steward, Garrett Young, John Eric Osborn, Cassandra Peters, Tyler Kelting and Danny Rose III.
The exhibit will close this weekend with a comics convention, called ContempCon, with an artistic bent, as Oklahoma Contemporary offers free admission and dozens of comics-related panels.
