My tropical paintings and drawings are now on display- available for purchase- in the gallery space of the Crystal Bridge Tropical Conservatory, as part of the Myriad Botanical Gardens Fine Art Series. I can’t say enough about this exotic jungle under glass, except that it’s my favorite spot of tropical nature in entire temperate zone of the western hemisphere; a good place to drop in on when I need a little soul balm and a rainforest refresher. And I always need a rainforest refresher.
As luck would have it, my exhibit coincides with the annual Oklahoma Festival of the Arts, a weeklong outdoor art show featuring artists from all over the country, 31 food vendors, 4 music stages, 300 musicians, lights, camera, action. All taking place right outside on the beautiful grounds of the Myriad Botanical Gardens.
All 24 pieces in this show were either made in the field or from field sketches. A fun techie feature: QR Codes alongside each painting link to sketches, photos, videos and audio clips for fun extra content. When you come to the show, bring your smart phone. Here’s a sample:
An image gallery of the whole show is here. The show runs from April 17 to May 29. Come get your rainforest refresher.
