Jon Burris

Jon Burris is a native Oklahoman who has been active in the Oklahoma City arts scene since the early 1970s. Professionally he has had a career as both a working photographer and a fine art curator functioning for clients locally and internationally. He served as Director of Photography for the National Cowboy Museum and Western Heritage Center, Director of the Robert A. Hefner III Collection of Contemporary Chinese Art, Curator of the Christian K. Keesee Collection of Russian Art, Director of the Brett Weston Archive and Curator of the Photographic Society of America (PSA) collection.


I have been extremely fortunate to have watched the appreciation of photography as a fine art medium develop since the mid-1970’s. In my duel capacity as a photographer and a curator I have been able to work with many artists that I admire and respect, each influencing me in different ways. I have moved from analog to digital photography appreciating the differences in each process. With the same regard I have witnessed styles and trends change from decade to decade. At this stage in my life, the satisfaction for me is being able to personally exhibit my photographs as my own art.

Erin Cooper 2018 profile Picture small

erin cooper

Erin Cooper is a contemporary abstract figurative artist based in OKC. Erin grew up on the Oregon Coast cultivating a passion for creating visual art. She pursued a career in graphic design, and formed a creative studio, CooperHouse, with her husband. Erin began incorporating elements of fine art into her designs, then rediscovered her love of painting. 

Erin’s work is bright, energetic, and incorporates graphic elements and the human form. The mediums vary widely and include watercolor, acrylic, oil, pencil, charcoal, ink and wax pastels. Her style is marked by fearless use of color.


My work is about creating relationships between divergent elements. These elements first communicate chaos that is then formed into something meaningful.

My medium is primarily paint on canvas, but the exploration of various media is part of my process. I want to allow experimentation and emotion to co-mingle in chaos, but ultimately leverage the struggle and the unexpected challenges to create something that is relevant.

Lawrence Hultberg-Profile-Picture-250

Lawrence Hultberg

An American photographer and abstract painter born in 1953, Hultberg’s parents were artists active in the emerging New York School of Art that fostered some of the most notable and celebrated artists of the twentieth century. Though he was not classically trained and considers himself self-taught, Hultberg feels he greatly benefited from his surroundings and exposure to a wide range of contemporary influences within the world of Modern Art.


My latest body of work, Urban Abstracts, are digital prints based on original photography capturing the textures, colors, geometric shapes and patterns found within the urban landscape. Taken out of context and produced to look like paintings, these images take on new dimensions reminiscent of modern art from the 1950’s, 60’s and 70’s; including abstract expressionism, constructivism and op art.

Jarica Walsh

Jarica Walsh is a graduate of The University of Oklahoma, receiving her BFA in Media Arts with an emphasis in Filmmaking. She is a visual artist working in ceramics and paper. She is an active curator, including Symbiotic, Scorched Earth: Subversive Ceramics, and Take A Seat. Walsh is the Director of Art in Public Places for the Oklahoma Arts Council. Walsh was born in Pawhuska and is a proud member of the Osage Nation. She lives and works in Oklahoma City, maintaining a studio in the Paseo Arts District.


I am heavily influenced by an early connection with circles, a compulsion to collect scraps of paper, and the constant desire to spend time alone with trees. I am a multidisciplinary artist, working mostly in ceramics. My sculptural works seek a balance and harmony of shape and pattern, reflecting our connection to the earth and the universe. I am motivated by the core principles of optimism, appreciation, and inclusion, and these concepts are driving forces across my artistic practice.
