Christie Hackler and Christie Owen co-founded Fringe in 2010 with the goal of helping female artists find success. Although 65-75 percent of MFA students are women, female artists account for only 27 percent of solo exhibitions. A mere five percent of artworks at major museums were created by women. Ethos gives physical expression to the feelings of being alive. Fringe artists will donate a portion of all art sales from the show to The Homeless Alliance.
Mon – Fri // 9 am to 5 pm
Nov. 16, 2018
Oct. 20 // 10 am to 1 pm

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

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.

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.
