Sharing the Art with Norman

(Continued)

NORMAN —

“In a formal gallery setting the artist doesn’t always have that chance to interact with people who are interested in their work,” Gavaghan said. “I’m hoping that this will really give them a unique opportunity as an artist.”

For visitors, it is a chance to understand the artistic process or what Schofield calls a journey.

“You step into the studio and start working and each time it takes you to a different place, it takes you in a different way,” Schofield said.

And right now, Schofield is on such a journey: Her art is in mid-transition, she said, and she is working hard to convey universal elements such as water and fire through paintings. She keeps the TV on to occupy her logical thinking so she can freely create.

With similar events in Tulsa and St. Louis, Gavaghan said this will be an opportunity for Norman residents to more fully explore their community.

“These studios are often — not necessarily — hidden from sight, but people are just unaware that they’re even there,” she said. “And then to be able to walk through their own community and realize that there’s art being made, maybe right next door or down the street, really adds to the cultural backbone of the community.”

When it comes to experiencing cultural enrichment, it seems the arts community has left the door wide open.
