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.
Amshot’s art opening, exhibITion: Disruptions!, will feature artwork by Michael Bendure, a Norman-based abstract expressionist painter exploring the intersections of color upon color and color upon texture.
The opening will take place at amshot, 1300 N Broadway Dr. in Oklahoma City, on Thursday, Oct. 12 from 5pm to 8pm.
ExhibITion: Disruptions! will benefit the Women’s Resource Center, a Norman nonprofit that provides free and confidential services to victims of domestic violence, sexual violence, and stalking.
All wristband donations for food and drink and 10 percent of art sales benefit the Women’s Resource Center. Our brewery sponsor for the opening is Beer Is Good Brewing Company, a three-barrel, taproom-focused brewery on Main Street in historic downtown Norman.
Michael’s evolving, process-driven works are designed to inspire joy, energy, and life. His art has been featured at Norman’s Second Friday Art Walk, the Plaza District, Oklahoma City University’s Norick Art Center, and the Gaylord-Pickens Museum at the Oklahoma Hall of Fame.
Of the show, he says, “ExhibITion: Disruptions! explores visual representations of physical interruptions, mental invaders, and atmospheric intruders, illustrated through colorful and textural landscapes. From technological hassles to supernatural visitations, to intellectual diversions, and more, this visually energetic collection of original paintings aims to celebrate, rather than condemn, such disturbances.”

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:
