Featured Local Artist

Winter 2022

FEATURED LOCAL ARTIST:

Roland Miguel
Headshot Self Portrait Roland Miguel

Roland Miguel is an Oklahoma visual artist working primarily in oils with a focus on representational art. In 2014, he left a corporate career to pursue his lifelong passion for art, which he calls “a transformative journey of discovery, growth, and encounters with serendipitous awakenings.”

“My guiding philosophy is, ‘Every image has a story and every story, its image.’ I strive to be an instrument of their communion,” he says.

ExhibITion: Water, Wind, and Other Wonders is a collection of Roland’s waterscapes, landscapes, and figurative work.

“There is something about water and wind that is transcendent and deeply alluring to the inmost origins of our senses. The earth is and will always be foundational in the grounding of our being; however, the water and the wind speak to places within us that long for a freeness and weightlessness of spirit. They feed our hopes and dreams in ways that cannot be captured in words,” he says.

“It is my hope that, as I explore these ever-flowing elements of nature, I not only capture the movement and beauty but dare to evoke the viewer’s deepest senses. Could these works possibly stir up one’s memories of the soft sand under foot, or the salty fragrance of the ocean’s breeze, or the weightless, refreshing freedom of bathing in the ocean’s caress?”

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

    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.

  • Host a gallery opening

    We host a gallery opening for the tri-annual 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.

  • Partner with local breweries

    Each exhibITion we feature a different local brewery to raise awareness about another form of local art—exceptional brewing! For a $5 donation to the featured charitable organization, guests are served light hors-d’oeuvres and attendees 21+ can enjoy locally-made beer as well as wine.)

  • Donate proceeds from the event

    We donate 100% of ticket sales and 10% of art sales to the featured Charitable Organization.
