OKLAHOMA CITY – Contemporary Art Gallery, as part of this month’s First Friday Gallery Walk in the Paseo Arts District, will present “Forever More” by Alan Ball and “Oklahoma Big and Small” by Renee Lawrence.

Alan’s photography is a blend of photojournalism, candid and traditional portraiture with a bit of fantasy and artistic creation. He “pushes the envelope” creating unique images that tell stories and leave lasting memories.

Renee’s pen and ink images are delightfully intricate. With this exhibit, she explores all things Oklahoma through miniature ink drawings and large acrylic paintings. The exhibit will show from February 5 through February 28.

The gallery is open Thursday through Saturday from noon to 5 p.m., Sunday from 1 to 4 p.m., and is closed Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

More than 80 artists in more than 26 galleries will participate, all within easy walking distance as you traverse the Paseo area. Art openings typify each month’s Gallery Walk, and many galleries will offer light refreshments.

Paseo, Oklahoma City’s historic arts district is Oklahoma’s City’s art community. Dozens of galleries, three restaurants and a handful of shops stand in distinctive Spanish Mission Revival style buildings, all within walking distance. Once you visit for a First Friday Gallery Walk, you will want to linger for the Paseo’s unique atmosphere.
