I am excited to announce that some of our Okie Collective artists (including myself) have been chosen to participate in “Redline,” a special Capstone exhibition curated by our very own Molly Youngblood. Molly was kind enough to give us a exhibition release on Redline. The reception for Redline will take place on Sunday from 4-6 pm at the OU Visual Arts Research Annex immediately following the University of Oklahoma’s Senior Capstone.
‘Redline is an curated exhibition featuring works of seven Senior Capstone artists – Jessica Ann, Cameron Logue, Matt Magill, Samantha Marquette, Eric Piper, Elliott Robbins, and Anna Thomas. The exhibition acts as a retrospective of each artist, presenting works which illustrate their time and progress during their undergraduate coursework at the University of Oklahoma.
The term “Redline” is defined as the fastest, farthest, or highest point or degree considered safe; The artists present have worked to the limits of their means and within binding guidelines and deadlines student artists face. Each artist highlighted has pushed the boundaries of their mediums and concepts, often times crossing the line of what is acceptable, what is desired, or what is expected from art. Painting, printmaking, sculpture, film, video, and technology art will be featured.
The exhibition acts as a final Capstone project for senior Molly Youngblood, a media arts major, involved with study in the field of curation as a Capstone thesis.
The exhibition is located at the Visual Arts Research Annex, located at 3506 Bart Conner Drive, off 36th Avenue NW in Norman. An opening reception will take place Sunday, May 5th from 4:00-6:00PM, directly after the opening of the Capstone show in the Lightwell Gallery. The gallery will be open 3:00-6:00PM on Sunday, as well as from 12:00-3:00PM on Friday, May 10th.’
