Fresh Start: Work by Artists Experiencing Homelessness

If you lost everything, what would you need to do to rebuild your life?

During the month of November, artists who are experiencing homelessness will display their work in an art show at The Paseo Plunge to coincide with a month-long supply drive for the Oklahoma Homeless Alliance. The exhibit is free and open to the public with an opening reception being held during Paseo’s first Friday art walk. 

The featured artists participate in “Fresh stART,” a program of the Homeless Alliance and City Care designed to provide people experiencing homelessness in Oklahoma City with a supportive environment for creating art.

In addition to providing a potential source of income, open studio art programs enable people experiencing homelessness to express themselves creatively, manage emotional issues, develop social skills through positive interaction with a peer group, and develop confidence and skills transferable to employment.

“I like to make art,” said Lee, a Fresh stART artist. “It takes my mind off everything else going on in my life. It is nice and peaceful here.”

Lee took an art class with her mom in high school and realized that she loved to paint. After getting married and having children she didn't paint for some time until she experienced homelessness. She found her way to the Homeless Alliance’s Day Shelter where she began attending the Fresh stART studio and has been painting ever since.

Fresh stART artwork covers a variety of mediums including mixed media, collage, water color, acrylic and colored pencil.

“Art allows people to temporarily escape their difficult situations and provides an opportunity to interact with peers in a positive environment,” said Dan Straughan, executive director at the Homeless Alliance. “And when an artist sells something that they created, it really helps build their confidence knowing that someone else values their work.”  

Fresh stART hosts studio time twice per week at the Homeless Alliance’s Day Shelter located on the WestTown Homeless Resource Campus and relies on the community to donate art supplies and funding to operate the program. 

For the supply drive, drop off spots at retailers across the Paseo will be accepting only new items from this list: cleaning supplies, pots and pans, bath towels, plastic plates and bowls, silverware, cooking utensils, can openers, trash cans and bags, coffeemakers, crockpots, microwaves, shower curtains and hooks, laundry bags and baskets, rag mops and buckets. Donations will be rewarded with a coupon for discounts and other items at participating retailers. 

The Paseo Plunge is located at 3010 Paseo in Oklahoma City and open Tuesday through Sunday. Originally built as a public swimming pool in the 1930s, The Paseo Plunge is currently being transformed into a multi-purpose art space supporting a wide array of creative disciplines. More information about the gallery and hours of operation can be found at www.PaseoPlunge.com.

The Homeless Alliance, a 501(c) 3 nonprofit organization, works to end long-term homelessness in Oklahoma City by building the capacity of the community through collaboration with other agencies, identifying and filling gaps in homeless service, bringing nationally-recognized best practices to the community, and working to build a system that is more efficient, rationale and caring. The Homeless Alliance operates several housing programs for families with children, coordinates a community effort to house veterans and people who are chronically homeless and publishes The Curbside Chronicle. The Homeless Alliance owns and operates the Westtown Homeless Resource Campus which includes a Resource Center with offices for multiple nonprofit and government agencies, a Day Shelter that serves an average of 300 people each day and a housing complex. For more information about how to help, visit www.HomelessAlliance.org.

Editor’s note: Personal stories and images will help our broader community better understand the experience of homelessness. If you would like to visit a class or be connected with artists in the program or a representative of the Homeless Alliance, contact Kinsey Crocker at the Homeless Alliance (405) 415-8439 or (580) 402-5269.

Open Release Party And Signing

Scott Jones will be signing copies of his long-awaited memoir and discussing progressive politics in the American Heartland.

unnamed.jpg

Open is a story of coming out as a gay man while working as a Baptist youth minister in Texas. Open is also the story of a Christian evangelical family living in the American heartland who must grapple with the son who has challenged their beliefs. Set in the front lines of the struggle for LGBT equality in the 21st century, Open explores the universal question of how we as humans live true to ourselves as our network of relations pushes back. Open is the story of how one man succeeded—living openly as a gay man and as a Christian minister in the Bible Belt.

OK Academy Listening Sessions with TOK

Aligning Oklahoma’s Tax Code to Our 21st Century Economy

2018 Town Hall Listening Sessions Knowledge Quiz Preface

Over the past several years, The Oklahoma Academy (OA) has preceded each of its Town Hall Conferences by conducting a series of listening sessions across the state.  While the primary purpose is to collect input from Oklahomans on a specific topic and share that data with Town Hall participants, the OA also utilizes the sessions to introduce Oklahomans who are new to the Academy’s business model of civic and open engagement of public policy issues impacting Oklahoma.

This year’s Town Hall will focus on how we might modernize Oklahoma’s current tax code, one that combines equity, adequacy, simplicity, transparency, and administrative ease.  Our current tax code is an amalgamation of individual legislative actions over the past 111 years … hardly strategic in nature and rarely, if ever, tied to a consensus, long-term vision of where the state is headed.

We hope you will join a listening session in your community/region to help us in gathering information to share with those who participate in the November 2018 Town Hall.

The Listening Sessions this year in advance of the Town Hall will capture critical issues Oklahomans need to know to better understand, discuss, and deliberate how our tax code has developed, the competitive/noncompetitive nature of the system, and where those tax collections (expenditures) flow.  The tool for the Listening Sessions is a multiple-choice quiz that attendees will take and submit (no names or means of identification).  Then utilizing a second unmarked survey for each attendee, we will provide the correct answers to each question.

Our overall goal is to allow attendees to be better informed about how their tax dollars are raised and to where they are being allocated.

Through Abahay’s Eyes: A Somali-American reflection on civil rights, heritage, war and resilience 

Born and raised in Oklahoma, Ebony Iman Dallas spent her first 23 years of life separated from family on her late father’s side. Her father was born in Hargeisa, Somalia while her mother and adoptive father are from Oklahoma. Her biological father’s untimely death and a long, bloody civil war prevented her from knowing him, her cultural heritage and family. But that all changed when Ebony unexpectedly met someone in San Francisco who knew that they were searching for her too. 

“Through Abahay’s Eyes” is a painting series that highlights this journey and is over a decade in the making. 

Ebony’s path to discovery has spanned across 7 countries and many cultures. Over the years, she has worked to process the tragedy of war, police brutality and her search to find out who her father was through art. 

This series of paintings share cultural similarities and differences discovered between Oklahoma and Somalia, stories revealed along the way and the internal dilemma of finding her place within it all.

Okla-Topia: an Exhibition of Paintings from the book Transmorphing Utopia. (Not a Cult press,2017)

Los Angeles art scene is predictable as a long functioning part of the city’s culture for many years.  Paul waddell was feeling stagnation in Los Angeles cycles of short periods of innovation followed by long periods of derivative work.

Paul w Waddell had heard that something was happening in OKC. It was a movement to build up the Contemporary culture,including the art. Oklahoma Contemporary’s plans to build a new and beautiful building, seemed to be a beacon of possibility that Paul could follow. He believed it was a wonderful thing to see a community making choices and building their art culture up and Paul would love to be part of something unpredictable.

Encouraged by friends who live in OKC and inspired by the new generation of Oklahomans who have traveled the world and have brought back beautiful things to their people, Waddell came to Oklahoma for a three month stay to focus on a new line of art.

Waddell has exhibited extensively throughout the United States and has performed in North America, Europe and Asia. Recent exhibitions include Town Hall (ltd, Los Angeles 2017) Transmorphing Utopia (ltd, Los Angeles, 2017) Thus Spake The Fungus (Arturo Bandini, Los Angeles 2016), Synesthesia (Five Car Garage, Santa Monica 2016), Ponding Purple Grass (Night Gallery, Los Angeles 2012); Move In Again (Honor Fraser, Los Angeles 2013), Openly Ceremonial (Know More Games, Brooklyn 2012), Moving In (Honor Fraser, Los Angeles 2012), Grand Re-opening (Human Resources, LA 2011), I like Massachusetts... (MEME Gallery, Cambridge 2010), The life of a house cat (Waterloo Centre for the Arts, Waterloo, IA 2010). Waddell was a 2015 Fellowship recipient at Lighthouse Works. He received his BA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (2005), and taught at the Idyllwild Arts Academy (2008-2012) and UCLA (2015). Paul is the founder and curator of the performance series TEST (Various locations, Ongoing) and FREE CLINIC (Human Resources 2011, 2012). His first publication Transmorphing Utopia (NOT A CULT, 2017) includes writings and images from his recent works about Los Angeles . Waddell’s work has been written about in LA Weekly, Artslant, Notes on Looking, A Righteous Transfer!, Time Out Boston, The Dig, and Art Papers among others

The Yellow Wallpaper Group Show

The classic horror story, The Yellow Wallpaper, written by Charlotte Perkins Gilman in 1890, was inspired by horrible advice that women suffering from depression were given by male doctors and enforced by husbands. The story still strikes a chord with women today.

The Yellow Wallpaper Art Show at The Paseo Plunge will showcase art that features women dealing courageously with mental illnesses, learning to trust their own inner voice despite louder (and usually male) voices of authority.

The Jean Genie Jean Jacket Art Show Vol. 2 :

The 2nd Annual Jean Genie Jean Jacket Art Show showcases the creativity and originality that comes with customizing your favorite jean jacket. Denim is special in that, if you have a jacket long enough, it'll eventually become a part of you. Either its patches, buttons, pins, paint, or even a certain stain or a rip, jean jackets have always been a form of art and self-expression. From the 1920's workers to 1950's greasers. From 1980's Punkers to today's rappers and pop stars. This show will feature jackets customized by some of the most creative and original Oklahoma City artists. The jackets will be accompanied by other art/ media by the featured artists. 

Kris Kanaly, Cody Lanphier, Michael Walters, and Tony Thunder will be returning with a new denim work along with Studda Budda, the custom-clothing-king of Oklahoma City. We are also happy to announce we have brought on the mysteriously masked creative two-some, The Holey Kids along for the ride as well. Their DYI art fits in perfectly and we couldn't be happier to have them.

So throw on your denim and come enjoy the night with us.

The Non-Prophet Book of Common Prayer

  • 3010 Paseo Oklahoma City, OK, 73103 United States (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Finding words that heal in times of pain is difficult. The Non-Prophet Book of Common Prayer is a collection of blessings not connected to any religion that began as a series of emails between friends working through darkness and suffering.

These blessings focus on empathy, strength as time passes, the greater human experience, and a growing compassion for all those who suffer.

The Oklahoma artists working on the project brought these ideas to life. Each of them adopted a blessing and created art to illustrate the emotions and ideas behind each blessing.

Our hope is that it will be a strength and help to others who are hurting.

The Paseo Plunge will be showing the original artwork of the participating artists in coordination with the release of The Non-Prophet Book of Common Prayer.

Scorched Earth: Subversive Ceramics

Scorched Earth: Subversive Ceramics

Can a cup be revolutionary? In this turbulent time in our society, what is subversive to one may not be to another. Ceramics are often viewed as utilitarian, and not considered political art. When given the mission to create cups that either subvert the form, or provide subversive messages, what will appear?

Clay is more than just dinnerware and coffee mugs, it's a medium of dissent as well. Contemporary ceramics are increasingly confronting societal issues and becoming more rebellious in nature. Oklahoma artists are rewriting narratives of power, questioning gender norms, and creating commentary on this supercharged political environment.

Confirmed Artists:

Mariah Addis, Stuart Asprey, Juan Barroso, Krystle Brewer, Lydia Cheshewalla, Chase Kahwinhut Earles, Dan Harris, Kathleen Hazelton, Mandy Messina, Katie Pendley, Amy Sanders, David Stevens, Nissy Tarver, Jarica Walsh, Tim Walsh

Ancient visions and contemporary voices

"Paintngs From Indian County"" by: Johnnie Diacon, J Nicole Hatfield, Kai Humyestewa, Bj Stepp, & Ed Hoosier. The artists bridge the gap between traditional and contemporary art in their respective works. The underlying message is remembering the past and using it as a model to renew the present in order to learn patience for what lies ahead. One hope is to nuture an understanding between cultures. Their art addresses the challenge of meeting demands to "make it new" while honoring and appreciating the unchanging spirit in all things as well as traditional tribal values.

What Is Native With Joshua Garrett and Edward S. Curtis

What Is Native With Joshua Garrett and Edward S. Curtis

For February at the Paseo Plunge, Joshua Garrett is featured in an exhibit titled “Catching Shadows: Interpreting the Works of Edward S. Curtis”  by Joshua Garrett”.  The exhibit will include more than thirty paintings by Garrett responding to the work of photographer and ethnologist, Edward S. Curtis whose work in the 19th and 20th century helped illuminate the Native American experience to the outside world.  The exhibit will also include a number of vintage photogravures from the volumes and portfolios that make up Curtis’ epic “North American Indian“ document.  Each of the 20 volumes contains 75 photogravures and each of the 20 portfolios contains 35 large format photogravures.  Following is a statement from Garrett regarding the influence of his life experience on his approach to the canvas with paint brush in hand.

"My work is based on my experiences regarding conflicted spirituality, cultural isolation, over consumption and being deaf. 

Although I am of Muscogee/Seminole heritage, I was raised in a Baptist household for the most part. My grandfather was a preacher. He was forced to learn English while attending a boarding school. My mother used to speak Muscogee but has forgotten how to speak the language as time goes on. Therefore, I was never really exposed to my traditional culture. This results in me feeling isolated at times. Mostly because I feel I am a part of the Church’s systematic attempt at killing off any sense of cultural identity generation by generation. 

I feel certain religions have taken over traditional beliefs and practices. I do not subscribe to any particular belief system but I do feel all things are connected somehow some way. Call it magic. Call it energy. Call it what you want.             

My aunt used to read my palms, tarot cards and horoscope growing up. Somewhere along the way I became fascinated with Freemasonry and its symbols and how they tie into the Church and today's modern media and how these symbols influence how much I consume as well as how society consumes as a whole.          

I am a product of my surroundings and all of these elements and experiences tie in and connect in one way or another. Even though I am aware of my surroundings, at times I still feel like a dead feather amongst the debris”

This exhibit is co-sponsored by: The Corridor, Gallery of Fine Art; the Oscar Jacobson Foundation; the Melton Art Reference Library; and The Paseo Plunge. It is curated by Amena Butler and Daniel Brackett.

Strange Worlds: A Very Strange Print Exchange

Strange Worlds: A Very Strange Print Exchange

Strange Worlds is a print exchange based around the Science-Fiction pulp art of the 1940's-60's, who boasted such titles as "Wonder Stories," "Amazing Stories," "Zap Comics," "Marvel," "Weird Tales," and "Strange Worlds." The original Sci-Fi pulps were created in a time when the world was still so new and the cosmos was unexplored. Even then artists felt drawn to create their own realities and explore beyond Earth.

In light of the current glorification of "Low Art," comic books, cartoons, zines, and the relatively newfound respect for Sci-Fi literature like that of Kurt Vonnegut, it seems as though we are in a pulp revival. It is important to acknowledge the strangeness of the real world in which we live.

All eleven, limited run prints are sold as a single collection and come with a custom-built wooden box. This is part of the two month Print! Print! Boom! series at The Paseo Plunge.

Zines emerged during the early days of photocopiers as a small circulation, handmade magazine that are sometimes odes to the local punk rock scene, mini-comics, or collage art works. Even with the dawning of the digital era, zines continue to serve as an important marker of a counter-culture scene and celebrate the DIY roots of the music and art underground.
