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

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.

Istvan Gallery Celebrates the 1st Solo Art Installation
Artist: Christie Owen
Opening Friday April 11, 2014
6 to 10 PM
“Intermix” is collection of work exploring the bridge between art and design. The installation evokes a sense of balance and elation by showing a complimentary array of different mediums in one exhibit. Artist Christie Owen allows the multitude of mediums she works with; paint, steel, copper and wood to guide her craft. “My paintings are created without intention and involve a primal performance of scraping acrylic paint and building texture with layers of color. I mix my own palette of hues from primary colors and enjoy all of the surprises” states Owen.
The artist intends her work to feel balanced and minimal with the right kind of imperfection. Conversely, her sculpture, furniture and jewelry require intention and planning. Per the artist “My sculpture is born from a need to fill a spatial void. I see negative space and imagine a form in its place. Utilizing steel, copper and wood I explore geometry and function to create minimalist clarity and organic compositions.” Always evolving, Owen seeks new development as an artist and designer. Her discoveries in one medium transcend to the other disciplines.
Searching for environmental and emotional tranquility, my art is a result of looking for visual solutions. It is a way to escape the technological realm, contemplate modern living, nature and communicate how each domain influences another. I utilize a range of mediums to create minimalist and organic art. It is my intention to engage the viewer to utilize the art, fill a void with something beautiful, improve emotional and environmental disposition and evoke a sense of balance in the modern world.
Owen creates art to escape from the fast pace of the digitally engineered world. With themes ranging from texture and light to nature and seasons, her art is an eclectic fusion of ideas and images blending modernism and minimalism. The artist enjoys the opportunity creating art gives her not only to slow down and pause an experience, but also to capture and preserve it. With a playful and organic feel, her paintings, sculptures and jewelry utilize a variety of techniques and applications to create a sense of enduring tranquility and beauty.
The April solo installation at Istvan Gallery will debut with an artists’ reception that is free and open to the public, Friday, April 11 from 6 to 10 p.m. The event will include light hors d’oeurves and beverages. Visitors can also observe glass blowing demonstrations by artists at Blue Sage Studio. The installation will continue through April 26.
