Christie Owen is currently exhibiting at the Oklahoma Hall of Fame — Gaylord Pickens Museum. She is also the 2016 Urban Core Artist in Residence at Verbode. She has been an artist all her life and graphic designer for over 20 years. From a distance, her art exudes a “less is more” or minimalist aesthetic but with closer investigation the composition, surface textures and layers sensitize the viewer to escape on a visual journey. Inspired by our everyday environments, the materials and compositions in her art work perpetually change in relation to various time and life experiences. Her work captures a journey of experimentation while seeking to convey balance and unity through forms and colors derived by industry and nature. Christie earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Communication Design from State University of New York College at Buffalo.

CHRISTIE OWEN @ THE COLLECTIVE

If you missed the Opening Reception you can stop in The Collective from now until October 18th, 2016 to see an all black & white art show by Christie Owen inspired by simplicity and balance. Christie infuses graphic and organic elements in her paintings to reflect a “less is more” outlook on life and art. Making art is a way for her to escape the technological realm, contemplate modern living and nature and then communicate how each domain influences another. It is her intention to engage the viewer to utilize the art, fill a void with something beautiful and evoke a sense of tranquility in the modern world.

The Collective a female co-working space in downtown Edmond, Oklahoma. It is a place to be present and productive, keeping home for rest and relationship. The Collective is located at 239 North Broadway, Edmond, Oklahoma.

Christie Owen & friends at Verbode

Verbode, Oklahoma City real estate brokerage, will host an artist reception on Thursday September 15, 2016, from 6 pm until 9 pm.

The collaboration between Verbode and the artist engages different cross sections of the community with local art. With each quarterly show at Verbode, the artist has the opportunity to work solo or in a group format to create dynamic and progressive exhibits for the public that reflect the flourishing creativity of the Oklahoma art community.

Christie Owen is the 2016 Urban Core Artist in Residence at Verbode. She has been an artist all her life and graphic designer for over 20 years. From a distance, her art exudes a “less is more” or minimalist aesthetic but with closer investigation the composition, surface textures and layers sensitize the viewer to escape on a visual journey. Inspired by our everyday environments, the materials and compositions in her art work perpetually change in relation to various time and life experiences. Her work captures a journey of experimentation while seeking to convey balance and unity through forms and colors derived by industry and nature. Christie earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Communication Design from State University of New York College at Buffalo.

Oklahoma City artist Matt Goad has been working professionally as a graphic designer and illustrator for over 20 years, and venturing into the realm of paintings on canvas in 2007. Whimsical, geometric, simple and complex, his paintings of animals and nature draw inspiration from classic graphic design and pop art reproduction of the mid 20th century. The discovery of woodcut printing during college was a major turning point in Matt’s development of his illustration style he refers to as “chunkism,” utilizing stencils and acrylics to create a world where nature and geometry meet and have a baby.

Exhibit opens September 15 and closes November 11, 2016.
