The new art show, Nostalgia, features the work of Fringe: Women Artists of Oklahoma‘s Brandi Downham, Jessica Legako, Van Lango, and Kerri Shadid. Fringe is a collective of professional women artists in Oklahoma working in a variety of media and styles.
Memories inspired the artists in Nostalgia to create artwork celebrating nature’s recurrence and the cycles of life. Themes include the playfulness of childhood, the birds of springtime, the scent of a summer rose, voyages to see natural wonders.
Brandi Downham paints, draws, and collages layers of bright flowers and birds in an exploration of time. Jessica Legako’s textural and gestural oil paintings capture her observations of the land. Van Lango explores the fragility of existence through her paint, pen, and ink plants. Kerri Shadid marbles paper and cuts it to create whimsical animal scenes and abstract works.
The artists showing in Nostalgia will donate a portion of all art sales from the show to The Homeless Alliance.
Verbode, a residential real estate brokerage, is located at 415 North Broadway, Suite 101 in Oklahoma City, in the TAP Architecture Building. Nostalgia opened on November 29, 2018, and closes Janurary 11, 2019. Visitors can view the show Monday through Friday from 9 am to 5 pm.
