Artist Jessica Legako takes viewers to far away lands at amshot’s latest exhibITion.
exhibITion: Far Away Lands is a collection of contemporary works by Oklahoma artist Jessica Legako, will be showcased from July 25 until early October.
Legako’s works portray texture, movement, distance, and depth, primarily using intricately layered oil paint on wood or canvas surfaces. She draws inspiration from her childhood, dreams, aspirations, and nostalgic memories, playing off the relationship between the image she creates and the wood grain it is created on.
It might seem unusual for an IT company to be promoting local art and culture, but Michael C. Thomas, CEO of amshot says, “our organization is committed to combining art, fun and community service as a core part of our business.”
“I’ve been a longtime fan of Jessica’s work, and I’ve commissioned pieces from her over the years,” said Rick Alliss, COO of amshot. “I’m really excited to feature one of my favorite local artists right in our office.”
In addition to selling the art on display, Legako has also debuted a collaborative line of canvas bags, pouches, and totes with local upholstery studio Thready or Knot.
Admission to the exhibITion art gallery and sale is free. For more information about the event and Legako’s work, visit amshot.com/exhibITion.
