A Rare Group. It is not every day that you get to see art from someone who considers himself a pagan/heathen artist. This is precisely why Oklahomans for Equality has an art gallery. The "Pagan Pride" exhibit at the Dennis R. Neill Equality Center, 621 E. 4th St., features art from pagan artists in multiple formats. Watercolors, acrylics, oil on canvas, digital art, photography, clay sculpture, custom glass, textile art and more will be on display. These works take into account the artists' views on spirituality and life. Call 743-4297 or visit okeq.org.
Finding Simplicity. To travel with direction, but with no set direction is the philosophy behind fine art photographer Martina Galvan. Her exhibit, "Vacilando," begins this month at TAC Gallery, 9 E. Brady, with an opening reception tonight at 6pm. "Vacilando" showcases a series of photographs taken in Mexico where Galvan found she could capture ways of life without being disturbed by anyone. "No one asked where I was going, what I was doing, or what my camera's purpose was. They just let me be." The exhibit ends September 27. Gallery hours are Thurs.-Sat., 6-9pm. The event is free and open to the public.
