These projects, along with Oklahoma Survey, will open at Ahha Tulsa February 7th and the Focus projects will move to Harvester Arts, opening May 1st. Stay tuned for updates along the way!
Concept is a regional art exchange program and exhibition that funds four Oklahoma and four Wichita, KS artists to create original work featured in the 2020 exhibition. These eight artists are given the chance for regional investigation through the partner-city exhibition exchange between ahha in Tulsa, OK and Harvester Arts in Wichita, KS. The exchange allows audiences and the participating artists to find both similarities and differences in regional concepts, trends, practices, and more.
Applications were selected by the Guest Curator Heather Pesanti, Chief Curator of the Contemporary Austin. She will work closely with the Focus artists to encourage and develop original work featured in the exhibition. The exhibition is intended to nurture, support, and connect artists to art practitioners; increase exposure; and foster critical dialogue about their work, and the state of art in Oklahoma and Kansas.
Harvester Arts is excited to partner with the Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition on this exhibition.
