Staff Report

 

Oklahoma City – The Paseo Arts District’s First Friday Gallery Walk for February will take place on Friday, February 2, from 6-10 p.m. The Gallery Walk will have more than 20 galleries featuring over 80 artists who will host opening receptions, promising something for everyone. The Paseo Art Space, at 3022 Paseo, will feature the Annual Paseo Arts Association Members’ Show, exhibiting the diverse art works created by their talented and supportive members.

2018’s Juror, Marissa Raglin, has selected the featured works and will award one Best in Show and two Merit Awards. A portion of the proceeds from artists’ sales will go to the Paseo Arts Association. “Marissa has done an excellent  job curating art from our members that truly represents the talent we have in our membership,” Paseo Arts Association Executive Director Amanda Bleakley said. “It’s been a wonderful way to have our SPACE artist be more involved with us, bridging her studio downtown to Paseo.”

Among the live entertainment slated for February is Stephen Salewon, a singer/songwriter. He grew up in Lagos, Nigeria and relocated to Oklahoma City with his family at the age of 13. Influences from his African roots, Red Dirt Music, likes of Jack Johnson, Mumford and Sons, and Coldplay, lay a foundation for the melodic and soulful tunes he considers Indie Folk. His tales are such they could mend a broken heart or cut like a knife; he expresses the attributes within the spectrum of our innate desires.

Street cuisine offerings for February include Yum Pig, the quirky trailer serving up porky dishes that visitors are sure to dig. Stop by Rolling Café for one of their monster wraps and stacker sandwiches.

Paseo is Oklahoma City’s Unique Arts Destination, located between NW 27th & 30th Streets and Walker & Hudson. For more information, call the Paseo Arts Association at (405) 525-2688 or email amanda@thepaseo.org.

Membership information can be found on the website.
