Allison Keim – Houses and Home

June 1 – 30

To many, the difference between a house and a home is nonexistent. To Allison, a house can be anything but a home is everything.

This collection of new work explores the places that shape a person, specifically how the structure of a house can become the emotional attachment that we fondly refer to as home.

Each painting tells a story, some detailing the personal history of the artist and her loved ones and others introducing the audience to interesting people from the community. Each abstract painting is accompanied by photographs and a narrative that demonstrate the winding road of research that inspired the visual emotional representation of HOME.

Dual Exhibition: Chris Hopkins and Timothy Lange

July 6 – 27

Timothy Lange’s Artist Statement:
I am thrilled by the challenge of creating three dimensional illusions on a two-dimension surface. Not through photo-realistic painting, but with obvious paint strokes that create form, structure and light. I am intrigued by the age-old tradition of landscape painting. Instead of sweeping vistas, I focus on the small corners of creation. However, the subject is not the important aspect of a painting; the strokes are what give it interest and life.

I graduated from the Colorado Institute of Art in 1982 and studied oil painting at the Art Student’s League of Denver from 1988 to 1992. I have shown my work at the Turner Gallery in Denver, the Opus Magnum Gallery in Castle Rock, Colorado and the Pearl Gallery in Tulsa.

I am a professional graphic designer and illustrator. In 2016, my first picture book as an author/illustrator, Scarecrow’s Journey by Doodle and Peck Publishing, was published.

I currently reside in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma with my wife and two goofy daughters.
