First Thursday Art Exhibit featuring the works of the OKFAA

“First Thursday” Art Opening and Exhibit featuring the works of the OKFAA – a group of artists presenting works based on the human form.

The April Oklahomans for Equality (OkEq) showcase and exhibit of local artists at the Dennis R. Neill Equality Center (621 E. 4th Street in Downtown Tulsa) will feature the works of OKFAA – a group of artists presenting works based on the human form, beginning with a reception on Thursday, April 6th from 6-9pm and continuing throughout the month.

OkFAA was formed in 2016 by a group of six artists united by an interest in creating works based on the human form. Their goal, through art, is to promote all manner of dynamic, figure based art, provide encouragement to artists wishing to explore this genre, and educate the public as to the contemporary value and long tradition of portraying the figure, both clothed and nude, in art. One of the artists, Kaylee says, “We couldn't think of a more fitting place for our inaugural show than Tulsa's Equality Center and hope more art spaces in Tulsa and Oklahoma, both for profit and not for profit, decide to follow its lead by befriending free artistic expression, especially as it relates to the human body in art”.

Kaylee Huerta is from the Tulsa area. She received her Bachelors in Art Education from NSU and a Masters in Fine Art from the University of Tulsa. Her work is mainly traditional medias and representational. www.facebook.com/ TreeStudioTulsa.com huertakaylee@gmail.com
