exhibITion

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, inspire us to see the beauty in the world, and encourage 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.

  • Bring in a local artist

    once per quarter to display their art in our office building, for visitors, clients, and employees alike to enjoy.

  • Host an art gallery opening

    where attendees can mingle with our featured artist, view a gallery of their work, purchase the art on display to admire forevermore, and enjoy fellowship with the arts community.

  • Invite local breweries, food trucks, and more

    to the event to provide locally-sourced refreshments. A food truck will have food available for purchase, and guests 21 and over can enjoy beer and wine in exchange for a $5 donation to the featured charitable organization.

  • Donate the proceeds of the event

    to an art-focused charitable organization.

FEATURED LOCAL ARTIST: Sam Washburn

Sam Washburn is an illustrator and designer who has been working professionally since 2009. An avid doodler since the age of five, Sam loves teaching and exploring new methods of art production. Sam has a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts at Washington University in St. Louis and a Master of Fine Arts degree from the College of Fine Arts and Design at the University of Central Oklahoma. His work has been recognized by American Illustration, 3×3, Creative Quarterly, the Society of Illustrators of Los Angeles, CMYK and the Oklahoma City American Advertising Awards.

Sam met amshot’s Michael Thomas and Rick Alliss as members of the OKC Midtown Rotary Club, an arts-focused service organization, and amshot’s leaders commissioned him to illustrate 58 custom art pieces for amshot, each of which represents a defining characteristic of the organization. When the 58 pieces are combined, they become amshot in a nutshell—both figuratively and visually. The illustrations not only figuratively represent the facets of amshot, but they visually come together to become a new art piece that represents the company as a whole.

The art piece, installed in amshot’s front lobby, was unveiled at the grand opening of Sam’s exhibITion on September 27th, 2018. Many of Sam’s other playful, tongue-in-cheek prints will be displayed on the walls of amshot’s office and available for purchase through the end of the year.
