Art After Hours - gods & fools

ARTSOK, the Regional Arts Alliance of Broken Arrow, will present the Art After Hours exhibition “Gods and Fools” by Micheal Jones on Thursday, Oct. 13, at 5:30 p.m., at The Loft over Main Street Tavern in the Rose District. It is the first time many of these works have been viewed. “After spending a month in Italy last year studying the great nude paintings of mythological figures rendered in the style of the age in which they were painted,  I wondered,’“How could I portray those ancient personalities now, in a contemporary setting?’” said Jones. Upon his return to the United States, he set about creating the “Gods and Fools” collection, using young models in a contemporary setting, putting a modern twist on the old subjects. “I depicted the models as they are, with tattoos, scars etc. with contemporary props and settings,” said Jones. Some of the subjects include a modern day Bacchus with a beer, and Hades in a swing with a cigarette and a glaring rude gesture. Endymion lies in eternal sleep covered by the “wedding ring” quilt made by his grandmother.  Flora rests on a nice bed with an embroidered coverlet while Pandora contorts with curiosity as she opens the famed box of ills. While they are no more “nude” than the figures in Caravaggio’s masterpieces, in modern times, they evoke a slightly erotic feeling. Viewer discretion is advised. “I have painted all these works in acrylic on canvas, using a technique I like to call ‘contemporary realism,’ with all the freshness and spontaneity of my modern technique,” said Jones. Art After Hours is sponsored by The Arrow Group. For additional information, please call 918-629-6426.

"Green Art, Red Wine" - Art After Hours

“Green Art, Red Wine”; the Broken Arrow Arts Council’s spring ‘Art After Hours’ event, has an amazing concept this year!

Do these pieces of art really rate an art show and are they really worth the purchase? Make plans to stop by and see for yourself.

“Green Art, Red Wine” will include artists that create sculpture, ceramics, pottery, assemblages, wall art, and other types of artwork constructed from found objects. This theme solicits artwork made with common items that you would normally think to discard. Recycled art is something that is beautiful, unique and/or timeless… it just happens to be created with junk.

This event is set for April 7th, 2016 from 5:30 to 8:30pm at Your Design located at 211 S. Main St.; in the heart of the Rose District. The spring ‘Art After Hours’ event will be sponsored by Arrow Group, Brown Kinion CPA and Your Design. It will showcase a greater number of artists than has been featured before and will have an extremely diverse collection of artwork for sell and to view.

Art After Hours has been a Broken Arrow Arts Council sponsored event for more than a decade. It allows people to experience a wide variety of visual art, music and poetry created by local artists for little to no cost. Through these events, the BA Arts Council provides a place to connect people in our community and honors the goal to introduce the arts to as many people as possible in a familiar setting.

There will be live music, delicious food and tasty wine provided for this event. As an added attraction, the unusual and bold living art created by ‘Exposed Courage’ will be available to interact with and view.

Tuesday's in the Park

Tuesdays in the Park, sponsored by AVB Bank, will go out with a bang this year! 

Due to the cancellation of the June 16th concert due to inclement weather, the last Tuesdays in the Park concert on June 30th will be the first-ever double header!

The concert will begin at 7pm with the regularly scheduled band…Jambalaya Jass playing until around 8pm. At approximately 8:30pm after a brief intermission, David Dover will take the stage to rock into the night until around 9:40pm! 

There will be something for everyone at this event and what a great way to start your July 4 weekend.

There may be a few additional surprises as well..so it will be a spectacular finale to a great season of music, food and fellowship. 

Come join us!
