Art galleries to see in 2015 | OK Gazette February 12, 2015 14:44
Oklahoma City is experiencing an art boom, and 2015 is shaping up to be a banner year for the local art community. From Tall Hill Creative’s planned art and music festival in March called Everything Is Not OK to Kasum Contemporary Fine Art’s upcoming exhibit of street artist Jeannette Herrera’s (aka Blue Face Killer) work, art followers have much to look forward to in the first quarter of 2015.
Planet Dorshak — the home of Dorshak Bloch and Bombs Away Art Company, as well as the primary retailer of Literati Press comics and books — is planning a 2015 full of science fiction-tinged comic book art and other mixed media. According to studio owner Dustin Oswald — the artist and designer behind the pseudonymous Bloch — they will feature a different artist every other month.
“I’ll leave their stuff up for a couple of months,” Oswald said. “We had Tony Trammell’s stuff up in December as our featured artist, and I left his up for the new year.”
Next month, Planet Dorshak will feature illustrator Natasha Alterici’s work as part of an effort to focus on contemporary American pop culture themes, Oswald said.
In March, Oswald will host the Marvel March Action Auction, a private showing featuring various artists’ takes of their favorite Marvel superhero or villain on 12×18-inch cradled birch panels. He will donate the proceeds from the show to the arts enrichment program at Cleveland Elementary School.
Tyler Wardlaw, an illustrative artist, will be the featured artist in April.
Later in the year, Planet Dorshak will have a book release party for Oswald’s second graphic novella, limited edition prints and t-shirts.
