FEATURED LOCAL ARTIST:

romy owens

romy owens is an artist and curator living in Enid, Oklahoma. She makes site-specific installations, as well as smaller objects, in reaction to place, community, and transformation. Her curatorial work attends to a similar focus. Both owens’ artistic and curatorial practices are presently centered around community art designed to impact social change, using art as a method to broaden our understanding of specific issues.

owens began her practice as an artist in 2006 and as a curator in 2009. She was selected as the first Emerging Curator for Momentum OKC (2009), the first Emerging Artist of the Year by the Paseo Art Association (2010), the first Artist in Residence (2012) at the Skirvin Hotel in downtown Oklahoma City, the first Curator in Residence of the Artist Invitational(2014-17) for Downtown OKC, Inc, and the first artist selected for the Artist Series at Leap Coffee Roasters. She has exhibited extensively with solo exhibitions and in group exhibitions.

In 2015, she completed The Unbearable Absence of Landscapes, a community-building site-specific installation at 108|Contemporary in Tulsa, which involved collaboration with 350+ knitters and seamers.

In 2016, she co-founded Current Studio with Kelsey Karper.

She is currently working on Under Her Wing was the Universe, an artist-led public art initiative in the City of Enid which creates a prairie, a pavilion, and a thousand stars.

Over the years, owens has worked with many Oklahoma organizations including Allied Arts, Arts Council Oklahoma City, Downtown OKC, Inc., Individual Artists of Oklahoma, Oklahoma Arts Council,  Oklahoma City Public Schools, Oklahoma Contemporary, Oklahomans for the Arts, Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition, Paseo Arts Association, and Plaza District.

owens’ art is part of private, public, corporate, and museum collections. She holds an MA in Photography and a BA in Media Studies.

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.
