June 13 - Sept. 4, 2017 | Showroom
During the summer of 2017, Oklahoma Contemporary kicked off Showroom | Showcase, a series of installations by local artists in our Showroom (located at NW 11th and Broadway). Our first featured artist was Rachel Hayes. Rachel’s installation, Test Patterns, consisted of fabric panels reminiscent of the test patterns that used to be seen on late-night television.
Rachel Hayes is a nationally recognized artist whose fabric structures explore painting processes, quilt making, architectural space, light and shadow. She has received a number of awards and fellowships, including most recently the prestigious Joan Mitchell Foundation Award for Painters and Sculptors. She is based in Tulsa as a part of the Tulsa Artist Fellowship program.
