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 event features the work of local artist Christie Owen, who has invited Matt Goad to participate in a two person show. Both Christie and Matt are visual artists and graphic designers who will showcase a juxtaposition of contemporary paintings. It is free and open to the public. Visitors will be able to the meet the artists, enjoy hors d’oeuvres from Ingrid’s Kitchen & beverages sponsored by Nick Solis – First Mortgage Company – NMLS #1082419

The real estate group provides the artist with a showroom for the year and hosts quarterly openings. 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.

Thanks @Jack Fowler at Oklahoma Gazette​ for the write up!

Being co-founder and former Vice President of Fringe Art was a both a catalyst and a spring board for me in so many ways. This organization is such a great resource for women artists in Oklahoma! Back in 2011, Christie Hackler and myself started Fringe with “Link” — the premier group show with other women artists.
