Last First Friday (June 3), our fellows were all up in the Brady District’s First Friday Art Crawl. The fourth floor rooftop terrace of AHHA, the Arts and Humanities Council of Tulsa’s Hardesty Arts Center, was transformed into a gallery for the inaugural Sculpture Show. TAF Artist Gary Kachadourian organized the exhibition, which featured TAF Fellows Rena Detrixhe, Monty Little, Chris Ramsay, and Nathan Young, as well as Tulsa community artists Jane Razauskas, Andrew Harmon, Steve Monroe, Loren Postier, Warren Realrider, and Shondinii Walters.

Weather.com had strong to definite promises of rainfall for the evening, but the unpredictability of Mother Earth (and Weather.com) pulled through for us, and the show went on. At the end of the evening, Nathan Young performed a fascinating sound sculpture inside his piece, Round House:

 


 

Art Crawlers also experienced TAF Artist Akiko Jackson’s work on the first floor of AHHA with Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition‘s exhibition, ‘Concept,’ and Crystal Z Campbell’s piece at Living Arts of Tulsa in ‘NOIRE Il, an exhibition of contemporary African-American artists from Oklahoma.


 

Now Fast Forward to This First Friday…

Sculpy (play dough for big kids)

Tomorrow (July 1) from 6-9pm, get excited for THE SCULPY SHOW, an exhibition of sculptures all made with baked polymer clay. There will also be a photocopied magazine, Things to Make With Polymer Clay, published in coordination with the exhibition that will include reproductions of each piece.

For those individuals without Sculpy on hand, Gary Kachadourian, who is organizing the exhibition, held Sculpy Night last Tuesday evening. To discover what was baked up at that event, we’ll see you tomorrow night in the AHHA fourth floor TAF studios.
