SixTwelve Gallery at Tower Theatre
The Tower Theatre in the Uptown 23rd district of OKC has generously offered us their lobby walls to curate, giving us the opportunity to provide gallery space for local artists and SixTwelve residents from all over the country. With exciting children’s programming taking place during the day at SixTwelve, we are unable to welcome people into our building to view art. Thanks to the generosity of the Tower Theatre, we now have the distinct honor of collaborating with an organization that truly cares about OKC and we are now able to support artists in a brand new way, furthering our vision of supporting the arts in sustainable ways.
If you are interested in purchasing any of the art that you see here today, you may do so by visiting the online gallery at our website: www.sixtwelve.org, or you may contact us at email@example.com for more information. We would be happy to help you in any way we can. All art stays on the walls of the gallery until the last day of the show. A portion of the proceeds from sales goes to SixTwelve to sustain this program and the rest will go directly to the artist whose work you see on these walls. The gallery is open from 10am to 6pm Tuesday through Friday and when the Tower Theatre is open for programming, but if you would like to make an appointment to see the art when SixTwelve staff is available (Tuesday through Saturday), please contact us at the email above. Thank you.
* We are not currently taking applications or viewing portfolios to have work hung in this gallery.

"Satellite" by Ruth Loveland, March 7-April 25, 2018
Through the radials featured in my current work, I explore the relationships between the the smallest parts and the larger entity. The radials are systems in themselves, often echoing my interest in mycology, the natural world, and manifesting good things. The act of painting is a meditation and my work is often reflective of my life experiences of a caregiver, and often represents abstract notions of community, life, end of life, and the universe.
The techniques I use include pen drawings, layering of opaque acrylic paint, gold leaf, photocopy manipulation of original drawings, and acrylic transfers on wood and canvas. At the center of my work is a love for materials, color, and the alchemy of painting. Beyond the pleasure of painting, I find that everything I make seeks to attract gratitude, community, love, and relationships which repeat, alter, and multiply the good in our lives.
Ruth Borum-Loveland graduated with a BFA from OU in 2005 and lives and works in Norman, OK.
