Staff Report

OKLAHOMA CITY – The Paseo Arts District’s First Friday Gallery Walk for May will take place on Friday, May 4, 6-10 p.m. The Gallery Walk will have over 20 galleries featuring more than 80 artists who will host opening receptions, promising something for everyone.

Don’t miss the opening reception for contemporary perceptual artist Jason Wilson. As a child, Wilson watched his grandmothers design, assemble and sew his family’s quilts

Today, Wilson gives new life to old concepts influenced by his grandmothers’ quilts with his show Hardline. Perceptual Art asks its audience to visually or emotionally interact with the design. Some Perceptual Art appears to shimmer and shift while other designs may provide a sense of serenity and grace. By bringing his designs to life, Wilson hopes to delight and inspire others. The show will run May 4-28 in the Paseo Art Space at 3022 Paseo.

Enjoy a live music performance by Casey & Minna, a local fiddle and guitar duo who perform folk, contemporary pop, oldies and original music. Casey & Minna began their musical journey together as a raucous big string band and whittled it down to just the family, often playing unplugged and strolling to meet the needs of venues, audiences and themselves.

No matter what you’re craving, the food trucks featured at May’s First Friday will have you covered! In the mood for Mexican food? The Chosen Juan Mexican Kitchen specializes in authentic Mexican street food, with everything made from scratch and cooked to order. Looking to try something new and quirky? Yum Pig will be there serving up porky dishes that visitors are sure to dig. We didn’t forget about dessert – Zebra Snow will have a tasty variety of classic and sugar-free snow cones for you to choose from.

The Paseo is Oklahoma City’s Unique Arts Destination, located between NW 27th & 30th Streets and Walker & Hudson. Each First Friday, Paseo galleries offer special themed exhibits, refreshments, guest artists and a variety of live entertainment- all within walking distance. Five restaurants and a handful of shops round out the Paseo’s unique atmosphere.

The City Sentinel newspaper is a proud supporter of the Paseo Arts Association and the Paseo Arts District.
