Check out the exhibit “Alex Leme: Small Town: Portraits of a Disappearing America” for an interesting interpretation of small-town America at the Oklahoma Contemporary Arts Center. The Orly Genger: Terra exhibit also offers a spectacular site.
Another of our favorite galleries, JRB Art at the Elms, is currently featuring the unique and mesmerizing photographs of Siegfried Halus and clay sculptures by Paul Media as part of a rotating exhibit. The gallery also features works by more than 100 Oklahoma artists.
Exhibit C, one of OKC’s newest galleries, offers an intriguing look at the talents of Chickasaws in Oklahoma.
