We had a grand ol' time last week with the Prairie Arts Center, leading a sculpture tour on OSU campus with a curious bunch of elementary-age kids. Anyone know where you can find this sculpture, "Proud and Immortal," by artist Marrita Black?



Discover more public art at OSU here: https://museum.okstate.edu/art/public-art.html
A great opportunity for showcasing artwork. A new gallery established in EyeLove Vision optometry lobby. Looking for 1-2 more artists in the next art rotation in April. See flyer on how to apply!
EyeLove Vision
Sapulpa High School Art welcomed visiting artist Courtney Juen, who demonstrated wheel throwing pottery to our high school ceramics classes. Wheel throwing is a creative and physical process that requires technique and concentration. Students will try their own clay designs over the next few weeks.

Courtney Juen recently graduated from Oklahoma State University with a BFA in Studio Art with a focus in ceramics and printmaking. She teaches and works at the Prairie Arts Center in Stillwater. Thank you, Courtney, for sharing your craft and beautiful artwork!

I found this piece of glass art Tuesday at the courthouse in Stillwater, OK.

Fall Break Art Camp! Prairie Arts Center is excited to partner with the OSU Museum of Art again this year for our Fall Break Camp. Camp will begin with a visit to the museum for an interactive tour of their current exhibition, Small Worlds: Carolyn Cardenas and Contradictions: Bobby Ross. Cardenas paints tiny, highly detailed interiors and complex urban scenes while Ross works on large canvases and creates surrealist settings that explore contradictions- good and evil, harmony and discord, truth and lies, etc. Both artists are storytellers. Students will think about how we tell stories visually in an artwork and imagine a story of their own into being. Making use of Ross' surrealism and Cardenas' scale and interior settings, we will create shadow boxes full of characters and strange happenings.

Art Academy is an after-school class designed for students who wish to develop and grow their artistic aptitude. Throughout each six week session, students learn and practice foundational skills in the visual arts and are exposed to a variety of mediums in both the 2D and 3D arts. Art Academy students also develop strong visual literacy and critical thinking skills through looking at and discussing their own artwork and the artwork of others. For the 6-10 year old cohort, each session yields a "final" work or project that is shared and discussed. For the 11-14 year old students, the focus shifts to skills-based instruction with an emphasis on drawing, painting, design, and composition.

Fall Second Sessions

6-10 yrs: Tuesday, October 25th - Tuesday, December 6th, 2022, 3:30-5:00 pm

6-10 yrs: Wednesday, October 26th - Wednesday, December 7th, 2022, 3:30-5:00 pm

Sad to hear this news 😒 Go out and support our neighbors one more time this weekend.

Well, I’ve written this post 100 times in my head…trying to decide how I let our wonderful customers know that we have some sad news!!
So, after lots of thoughts & prayers we’ve decided to close our pop-up shop. There’s lot of reasons for this decision, but it comes down to not enough hours in the day!! We’ve have loved doing this little shop, but it’s time to focus on some other things in our lives…
The good news is that we have LOTS of inventory to clear out!! This weekend ( Sept 9th & 10th) we will be being having a huge sale! 50% off all merchandise! Yes! You read that right!! Can’t make it this weekend? No worries, we will continue next weekend as well!!
