This summer, Oklahoma Contemporary is kicking off Showroom | Showcase, a series of installations by local artists in our Showroom (located at NW 11th and Broadway). Our first featured artist is Rachel Hayes. Rachel’s installation, Test Patterns, consists of fabric panels reminiscent of the test patterns that used to be seen on late-night television.
Rachel Hayes is a nationally recognized artist whose fabric structures explore painting processes, quilt making, architectural space, light and shadow. She has received a number of awards and fellowships, including most recently the prestigious Joan Mitchell Foundation Award for Painters and Sculptors. She is currently based in Tulsa as a part of the Tulsa Artist Fellowship program.
