Every four months, our team highlights a member of the Oklahoma art community. The local Featured Artist assembles a gallery throughout amshot’s downtown office for visitors, clients, and employees alike to enjoy.
Emma Difani is a visual artist from Albuquerque, NM, living and working in Oklahoma City. She is an active member of the Factory Obscura Collective, ART GRP and the Radical Intersectional Print Guild. Emma co-founded Connect:Collect, an annual international print exchange highlighting Oklahoma printmakers and connecting them with artists from around the world.
Everything Is Interesting is a collection curated from several different bodies of work centered around observation, connection and environment.
“I am fascinated by almost everything and instead of trying to fight that desire to discover and delve into a little of everything, I am trying to embrace it and encourage curiosity. I am reconciling that printing, painting, sculpting, cooking, planting, letter writing, walking and drawing are all integral and interconnected ways of understanding the world around me,” she says.
“My drawings and objects of paper and fabric consist of dozens of layers in watercolor, print and graphite. This layering reflects my training as a printmaker and mirrors the overlapping, complex spaces and communities, human or otherwise, that inhabit the places I draw.”
Admission to the gallery is free, but a $5 donation to CAVETT KIDS covers snacks and beer + wine (if 21+)

Art lovers of all ages!
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:
