The exhibit “Fantastical” by sculptor Gail Glikmann is a tongue and cheek often whimsical commentary on contemporary life and the currents and undercurrents running through it. The figurative sculptures are large, often made of colorful mosaic and found objects, or brightly painted cast resin, which gives them a whiff of musical comedy joie de vivre.
Chad Horn’s exhibit “Oklahoma Dramedy” is an ongoing series of memory-based oil paintings and works on paper that capture his childhood and adolescence years in Central Oklahoma, where he was born and raised. The work speaks to the complexities of familial relationships, domestic life, and childhood memories.
In Nathalie Tierce’s solo show “Pulling Weeds from a Cactus Garden – Life is full of pricks,” the artist uses metaphor to convey the brutality of human interaction in her mixed media paintings and drawings. Diving into the dark space between desire and fear, her characters struggle within uneasy cartoon humor.
