Co-curators Kelsey Karper and Jennifer Scanlan considered dozens of artists for ArtNow 2017. They queried colleagues, reviewed websites and spent months making studio visits all across the state.
The ArtNow exhibition, featuring 24 artists, highlights the diversity of Oklahoma art today. The show's closing event is an art sale — the first big party of the year with cocktails, tastemakers and the opportunity to purchase one-of-a-kind works. Proceeds help keep Oklahoma Contemporary exhibitions open free of charge, year-round.
A media kit, including this release and high-resolution photos of ArtNow works, artists and curators and from the 2016 event, is at bit.ly/ArtNow17Drop. Interviews with artists, the show's curators and other staff can be organized through Director of Communications Lori Brooks (firstname.lastname@example.org). (Jan. 10, 2017)
