Featured Local Artists

Winter 2019

FEATURED LOCAL ARTIST:

Featured Artist Caroline Cohenour

Caroline was introduced to amshot through mutual friend and fellow artist Kerri Shadid, and her colorful, transcendent art felt right at home in amshot’s lively office. amshot is excited to feature Caroline’s work in the Winter 2019 exhibITion.

Named after her artist grandmother and her art patron great-grandmother, art is in Caroline Cohenour’s blood. Influenced by over a decade studying, living, and working in their California, she creates her colorful and evocative abstract originals intuitively, often while listening to music. Layers of marks, numbers, symbols, and words give the viewer entrée to find something new in each look with unexpected titles offering additional dimension. A mixed media and wholly analog artist, Caroline paints and collages with watercolor, ink, pencil, charcoal, acrylic atop paper, wood, and canvas.

Her current explorations hatched during a recent four-year tenure as a resident artist at In Your Eye Gallery in Oklahoma’s historic Paseo Arts District, and her work is now part of collections coast to coast. You may have also spied her work at a West Elm Pop Up. You can buy her one of a kind, original art work at ME Home, at her OKC studio by appointment, by commission, at events or shows around town, or on her Instagram.

Featured Artist Kerri Shadid

amshot’s leaders Michael Thomas and Rick Alliss met Kerri Shadid through Midtown Rotary, an arts-focused service organization, and were inspired by her fun, vibrant art style and personality to match. amshot is excited to feature Kerri’s work in the Winter 2019 exhibITion.

Kerri is an Oklahoma City-based visual artist, poet, and writer. Her work is often absurd or whimsical and celebrates playfulness and curiosity.

Kerri was the 2014-2015 SPACE Artist-in-Residence at the Skirvin Hilton Hotel in downtown OKC and has had solo and group shows at galleries in Oklahoma City, Tulsa, Norman, and Lawton. She marbles papers to create adorable animal scenes, abstract art, and handmade books of poetry. She writes spontaneous, custom poems for visitors to her Poetry Stand, which she often performs around the metro and the region. Learn more about Kerri’s work at kerrishadid.com

Before returning to Oklahoma City, Kerri studied UN peacekeeping as a Fulbright student at McGill University in Montreal and received her Master’s in the Humanities and Social Thought from New York University.

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 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 showcase art, an opportunity to expand their network, and a platform to highlight artists.

With this in mind, amshot created exhibITion, an art show 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 likes to highlight a member of the OKC art community. The featured local artist assembles a gallery throughout amshot’s downtown office for visitors, clients, and employees alike to enjoy.

  • Partner with a client

    We love teaming up with our clients that are interested in giving back to the OKC arts community and deserving charitable organizations.

  • Host a gallery opening

    Together with our client partner, 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

    Donate the proceeds of the event to the featured charitable organization.
