THE WHITE ROOM GALLERY : STRAY THE COURSE, 20th- Sept 19th Reception Wed, Aug 25th 5-7pm




“In business and in battle you have an end goal in mind.   You stay the course, and any mistake or obstacle is viewed as an unwanted intrusion to be quickly handled but in the world of art mistakes can lead to delightful surprises, and obstacles can create unforeseen opportunities.  If Jackson Pollack didn’t need more space for his canvases and serendipitously found the floor, he never would have discovered his “drip” technique.   Was it a mistake when Manet’s reflection in the mirror did not match the scene or when Rembrandt seemed to have two left-handed gloves?   Who knows?   Whether intentional or a delightful surprise, the end result was two masterpieces.  Art is a creative journey filled with trials and errors and all kinds of things that can take you off the course.  But it is in that straying where artists find the magic, that unique look that becomes their signature, their voice.  This exhibit celebrates the STRAY.   Honestly, we wouldn’t want it any other way.”

ArtNow 2021 showcases Oklahoma's deep artistic diversity with 27 artists, 114 works

Exhibition highlights variety of disciplines and demographics, plus honors Bert Seabourn with inaugural ArtNow Focus award

OKLAHOMA CITY | July 26, 2021  As befits a state that is home to Native Americans, immigrants, refugees and the descendants of slaves, Oklahoma art contains multitudes. Opening to the public July 30, ArtNow 2021 — the first in Oklahoma Contemporary’s new downtown home — proudly displays the rich diversity of the state’s art community.

In its new biennale format, ArtNow 2021 features 27 Oklahoma artists, led by 2021 Focus Award honoree Bert Seabourn. The inaugural award recognizes the multitalented printmaker, painter and sculptor, who taught at Oklahoma Contemporary for years, for his contribution to the state’s cultural landscape.

ArtNow 2021 hosts 114 works by the following artists, including Seabourn:

  • Sarah Ahmad
  • Rea Baldridge
  • Hoesy Corona
  • Chase Kahwinhut Earles
  • Josh Jaiye Farrell
  • Edward Grady
  • Raven Halfmoon
  • Melissa Jacobs
  • Kreg Kallenberger
  • Karam
  • Carrie Kouts
  • Sam Ladwig 
  • Kyle Larson
  • Sarah Leis
  • Kalup Linzy
  • Amy Maguire

  • Simphiwe Mbunyuza

A concrete artwork consisting of three conjoining sides of a cube with trees, electrical poles and lines protruding toward the center from each side.Curated by guest curator Helen Opper and guest curatorial associate Liz Blood, ArtNow 2021takes visitors through an exciting array of Oklahoma art, ranging from Moan’s ceramic corsets and Kout’s haunting sculptures to Ahmad’s innovatively composed photography and XVALA’s pop cultural meditations on consumerism.

ArtNow 2021 features the work of 27 artists whose practices reflect the vibrant diversity of Oklahoma and of contemporary art,” the curators said in a statement. “There is no one style or form of ‘Oklahoma art’ or one type of ‘Oklahoma artist’ — Oklahoma artists are Indigenous, Black, White, Latinx, Asian, Queer, Nonbinary, Immigrants, Native Oklahomans and everything in between. Art made in Oklahoma is a reflection and adaptation of long-held traditional creative practices as well as an indicator of innovative, investigative, global contemporary artistic modes of production.”

Philips presents Brian Clark's stained Glass onlineAug. 4-Sept.10, 2021

Phillips is pleased to announce Brian Clarke: Vespers – a spectacular exhibition of works on paper by architectural artist and painter Brian Clarke. This debut of Clarke’s monumental new cycle of paintings and mixed media collage will go on view to the public at 30 Berkeley Square from 5 August to 10 September 2021 and will be available for sale via the HENI Leviathan online platform.


Delayed for over a year by Covid restrictions, this exhibition’s unprecedented scale now allows Vespers, begun in 2019 and continued again through lockdown, to be seen in its full narrative arc. Over 500 works in watercolour form the centrepiece of the exhibition, in which Clarke uses the form of the poppy as the starting point for a strikingly inventive investigation into abstraction and the liquid nature of colour.

Gathered together, writes Robert Storr, they make “an explosive bouquet of natural beauty at its most ephemeral, given that all truly natural things are inherently ephemeral and that beauty assumes its greatest pitch and poignancy when it has been wounded”, employing Clarke’s unmatched experience working with light to evoke the ‘huge walls of flickering colour’, the ‘harnessed euphoria’ he explores through his practice in stained glass, tapestry and ceramic.

I tried to see if I could capture not so much how a poppy looks, but that feeling that they have of very delicately balancing their beauty on top of those tender stems which drip with great speed out of the flower down to the ground; other times they gather together like communicating things, or cluster to form extraordinary, interwoven heraldic patterns. They feel, when I make them, choreographing some story across the sheet, like little prayers – as near as a post-Darwinian Realist can get to saying a prayer.”  Brian Clarke

A short story: I see "The Smokey Sun & the Moon", as "the dystopian future of a society bereft of reason" ( Oxford Dictionary online)

Hi All, 

Shocked to see a reddish-yellow waxing moonrise, I shot the images below, evening moonrise, 7/20- sunrise 7/21/20. The moon amazed me through the hazy light clouds, followed by the red sunrise, again a hazy light cloud coverage. In actuality, it is difficult to know if clouds or smoke defuse the images offering the orange cast to both. I was reminded of the dystopian images of a different world or science-fiction image offered as an imaginary alternate system from our own. 

The imaginary is now a reality due to the extensive Western American fires smoke polluting the eastern seaboard states. 

Enjoy, best Jamie
