September 1 – 22: Modella Gallery presents: Native Borders with Norman Akers and Marty Avrett

Thur – Fri 5:00 – 8:00 pm, Sat 11:00 am – 5:00 pm, Sun 1:00 – 3:00 pm, Modella Gallery, 721 S. Main St.  Modella Gallery is pleased to present Narrative Borders exhibit, a compilation of work by artists, Norman Akers and Marty Avrett.  Akers and Avrett explore the landscapes around us; as colorful abstractions, paintings of a moment in time, and symbolism about the interactions between Native American culture and the forces that shape our sense of place.  Notable Osage Artist and University of Kansas professor, Norman Akers explores identity through American history, contemporary politics, Native American culture and man-made borders.  Akers melds digital images with printmaking techniques to create bold and otherwise unachievable depth and color to the spaces he creates.  Akers pieces are intellectually important in discussions of current day immigration laws and national borders as they are thought provoking with the layers of symbolism and pleasant to indulge.  He has a piece in an upcoming show at Crystal Bridges and Nelson Atkins Museums.  Marty Avrett, a highly accomplished Oklahoma artist compares his search for the truth of a moment in time or place, through two different styles, abstract expressionism and representational painting. Avrett studied with the famous Abstract Expressionist painter, Richard Deibenkorn. 

 The retired OSU Art professor created remarkable abstract paintings for a majority of his career.  In the past four years, he has largely removed human interpretation from his work and focused on presenting small paintings that capture the truth of the landscape with few effects of civilization as to show the natural phenomena of nature.  Avrett’s work is featured in the San Francisco Arts Institute’s permanent collection as well as numerous public and private collections in the United States, Mexico and Europe.  Modella Gallery is a non-profit art gallery dedicated to bringing contemporary arts to Stillwater, Oklahoma.  For further information, please contact the gallery at (405) 880-4434 or visit modellaartgallery.org.

Mondays, 5:30 - 8:00 pm, Stillwater Public Library, 1107 S. Duck St. The Stillwater Public Library is teaming up with the Stillwater Medical Center (SMC) and the Oklahoma Healthy Aging Initiative for another great health series. “Healthier Choices, Healthier You” is a six week program designed to equip participants with tools to manage symptoms that stem from on-going health conditions. SMC will be providing a light dinner for each class. When an individual has an ongoing health condition like arthritis, diabetes, anxiety, hypertension or COPD, they may not have just the symptoms that go along with the illness. Unfortunately, they often also experience fatigue, sleeplessness, stress and other challenging symptoms that make dealing with the initial condition even harder. To compound problems, those symptoms can also make people vulnerable to even more illness. This class helps individuals and/or their caregivers manage those symptoms. Brandi Bishop from SMC and one of class instructions says that attendees will learn tools for managing symptoms, getting better sleep, getting appropriate exercise and dealing with stress and the blues. Class is limited to 18 participants, so be sure to register soon. To sign-up, you may call Brandi at 405-742-5791 or Maricela at 405-271-6424.
