Christie Owen Surroundings Gaylord - Pickens Museum Oklahoma Hall of Fame


Thursday, September 8 at 5 PM – 7 PM
Oklahoma Hall of Fame at the Gaylord-Pickens Museum

Join us for an Opening Reception for Christie Owen: Surroundings. Surroundings offers a diverse collection of abstract 2D and 3D works inspired by our everyday environments. The materials and compositions in this body of work perpetually change in relation to various time and Owen’s life experiences. This collection captures a journey of experimentation while seeking to convey balance and unity through forms and colors derived by industry and nature.

A native New Yorker, Christie Owen lives in Edmond, Oklahoma and divides her time as an artist and graphic designer. Her 2D and 3D works may be found in local and national museums, galleries, public venues, private collections, and retail locations.

This event is free and open to the public. For more information about this exhibition and Museum program offerings, email Marissa Raglin at

Awake Christie Owen Brandi Downham

Christie Owen and Brandi Downham offer a collection of works immersed in the language of unity and balance. Drawing on their individual processes, each artist will present work that evokes a visceral sense of steady wakefulness. Extracting from their own intuition, and inspired by the flourish of spring, “Awake” serves as a metaphor for both a season and a journey.

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.
