Nature’s Course Learning Gallery with John Newsom

Painter John Newsom gives a tour of the learning gallery at Oklahoma Contemporary, which pairs with his exhibition, Nature’s Course, in the main gallery. I took a creative departure from the traditional artist statement by having John talk about his works through the learning gallery.

John Newsom: Nature’s Course at Oklahoma Contemporary is a mid-career retrospective, featuring 31 of his paintings from the last 20 years. Newsom is best known for his richly textured large-scale oil on canvas paintings of flora and fauna. Newsom’s work layers and combines elements of Abstract Expressionism, minimalist geometric shapes, and hyper-realistic representations of animals to create complex allegories of the natural world.

The exhibition runs from March 24 to August 15, 2022.

Sugar High

Sugar High is an immersive art experience, similar to Factory Obscura, Meow Wolf, or City Museum, about a dystopian world ruled by sugar. I interviewed artists romy ownes and Ben Ezzell about what visitors can expect at this limited exhibition. Admission to Sugar High is free, but they will only be open until May 8, 2022.
