Home Suite Home. Printmaking is a subtle art that captures not only the artist's original intent, but also the minute differences and aberrations caused by the process of replication. "Suite Oklahoma II," curated by Adrienne Day, charts the current work of 18 different contemporary Oklahoma printmakers. The exhibit, at the Tulsa Artists' Coalition Gallery, 9 E. Brady, is an exchange portfolio, in which each artist receives a portfolio with a print from each of the other participating artists. A variety of methods are represented, from intaglio to relief, serigraphy and lithography. Solar plate, collage, monotype and sewing are also incorporated into a number of pieces. Stop by through July 26 from 6-9pm, Thurs.-Sat. Call 592-0041 for more.
