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.

PETER E. ROBERTS: HEADCASES (OK!) - May 4 - June 27, 2018
SixTwelve is proud to present the work of Peter E. Roberts, our current SixTwelve resident from Savannah, Georgia. His show, "HEADCASES (OK!)," portrays iconic Oklahomans who were leaders in innovation, industry, music, art, sports and more with his mixed media, graphic paper cut assemblages in an appreciative style.
Earlier in 2018, Peter travelled to OKC to work with children in our Spring Break Urban Farm and Creativity Camp and his projects were a hit! He returned for part two of his residency the first week of May and the opening of this exhibit took place at SixTwelve Friday, May 4th from 6-9pm. You can now view his show at the SixTwelve Gallery at Tower Theatre through June 28th.

If you are interested in purchasing any of the art that you see here today, you may do so by visiting the online gallery above, or you may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org 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. All works in the gallery will remain up until the end of each show. Afterwards, we will either ship your work to you or you may pick it up. Thank you.

ABOUT PETER E. ROBERTS:
Raised by semi-alcoholic wolves in the tony suburb of Greenfield Hill in Fairfield, CT, Peter E. Roberts grew up amidst impromptu gatherings of neighbors, extended family and cronies from the Manhattan commuter train. The ribald, oft-repeated stories from those gatherings led to an early appeal of potentially explosive social situations. Exposure to a great aunt’s personal cache of 1930s Mardi Gras Krewe invitations cemented a lurid fascination of how the celebrated night began, why it ended and who were the guests that may have behaved “badly”. This innate love of storytelling led to a BFA in Video from Savannah College of Art and Design and over a decade in television advertising and production. Concurrently producing invitations and various paperama led to several GraphicDesignUSA Awards. His fine art exhibitions of narrative layering by 2 dimensional papercuts led to his current position as Gallery Director of Location Gallery’s two locations in Savannah.
about sixtwelve residencies:
This residency is a part of the SixTwelve pilot residency exchange between Oklahoma City, OK and Savannah, GA that we have organized for the past three years. Each resident that we have worked with from both cities was given housing, a stipend for their time, a travel stipend and connections to other artists and organizations in the host city so that they would have all that they needed to create a body of work and to give something back to the community in which they were working. Applications for the SixTwelve Residency program will be posted on our website later in 2018.
* We are not currently taking applications or viewing portfolios to have work hung in this gallery.
