Featured Local Artist

Fall 2019

FEATURED LOCAL ARTIST:

Brooke Rowlands

Self-taught artist Brooke Rowlands is making waves in the art world. Her work has been featured nationally from Texas to Times Square in addition to features in national television series including The Vampire Diaries and Houzz project with Actress Olivia Munn. Rowlands is a native of Trenton, New Jersey who has resided in Oklahoma for the last 15 years. She credits her early influence in art to her grandmother but influences of abstract artist Franz Kline and illustrator Clare Leighton are also evident on the surface.

Rowlands approaches her work with a combination of the day’s emotion and the intention of creating alla prima. Unabashed about her intent the artist displays aggressive expressive strokes, in often lush juxtaposition of vivid color, which creates the initial perspective plane of her compositions.

Once the mood of each piece has begun to deliver itself the artist selects the to either leave the color to stand alone or add flower forms which will eventually emblazon the surface completing each piece. With the floral forms selected the artist takes to work on paper to complete each flower form in stunning detail using ink and other graphic media.The completed drawings are clipped from their paper substrate and their neutral color is expertly inserted into the bold abstract planes on her canvases. The artist then prepares the surface with finishing compounds that seal the layers together marring them into harmony. The result of the tumultuous combination of color and neutrality is a playful dance that exists between atmosphere and subject.

What is exhibITion?

As a local business, amshot’s core values challenge the office to empower our community, and local art plays an important role in the Oklahoma City community. At amshot, technology is our business tool and our creative outlet, so our team wanted to support local artists who also use their creative passion as a career.

For attendees, a local art gallery in OKC brings strangers together, inspires us to see the beauty in the world, and encourages even the busiest of us to stop and smell the roses. For the art community, they provide a venue to exhibit art, an opportunity to expand their network, and a platform to highlight artists.

With this in mind, amshot created exhibITion, an art exhibit to promote local artists, give back to the organizations that are making a difference in our backyard, and enjoy the company of fellow art-lovers. Here’s how we do it:

  • Select a local artist to feature

    Once per quarter, our team highlights a member of the OKC art community. The local Featured Artist assembles a gallery throughout amshot’s downtown office for visitors, clients, and employees alike to enjoy.

  • Host a gallery opening

    We host a gallery opening for that quarter’s featured local artist(s) where attendees can mingle with our Okie artist, view a gallery of their work, purchase the art on display, and enjoy fellowship with the arts community.

  • Invite local vendors breweries, wineries, + more

    We invite local breweries, wineries, and food vendors to provide locally-sourced refreshments at the event. For a $5 donation to the featured charitable organization, guests are served light hors-d’oeuvres and attendees 21+ can enjoy beer and wine.

  • Donate proceeds from the event

    We donate 100% of ticket sales and 10% of art sales to the featured Charitable Organization.
