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.
Aimee Eischen is an Oklahoma City-based abstract artist working in a variety of media, including acrylic, watercolor, graphite, charcoal, ink and oil pastels. Her vibrant paintings have been featured in galleries across the U.S.
ExhibITion: In the Unraveling is a collection of Aimee’s mixed media abstract art, including her floral-style pieces.
Guided by her intuition and literary background, Aimee starts each painting by writing verses, song lyrics, poetry or meaningful names onto the canvas. Although not seen in the final painting, these words form the spirit of the piece.
“Original art can transform a space both visually and emotionally with the energy it radiates. It can be calming, meditative, and uplifting. Art can inspire new ideas and relieve stress. Beautiful works of art in your space speak to your soul and connect you to the people around you,” Aimee says.
For exhibITion: In the Unraveling, Aimee will create a never-before-seen series of brightly colored abstract works filled with line and movement.
The opening of exhibITion: In the Unraveling will benefit Halo Project, a local nonprofit that supports foster and adoptive families and works to meet the needs of vulnerable children in the community. All ticket sales and 15% of art sales benefit Halo Project.
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:
