Twelve Oklahoma photographers will show their work and give insight into how they create their art Wednesday during the Oklahoma City Museum of Art’s Photo Slam.
The Photo Slam will be at 7 p.m. Wednesday in the museum’s Noble Theatre.
The participating photographers each will get five minutes to show and tell about what they do using a variety of tools, such as slides, digital projections and printed samples. If they exceed the time limit, they get the gong.
Todd Stewart, assistant professor of photography and digital imaging at the University of Oklahoma, chose the Photo Slam presenters from a pool of applicants.
The participating photographers are Josh Buss (see his cool photo above), Moore; Bryan Dahlvang, Tuttle; Candace Coker, Shawnee; Marty Coleman, Glenpool; Clinton Dean, Oklahoma City; Beth Downing, Tulsa; Allison Fonder, Tulsa; Robert Gurfinkel, Yukon; Matt Jarvis, Pawhuska; Romy Owens, Oklahoma City; Don Risi, Oklahoma City; and Cynthia Wolf, Oklahoma City.
The event is presented by the museum, International Photography Hall of Fame & Museum and Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition. It coincides with the special exhibition “Brett Weston: Out of the Shadow,” on display at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art through May 18.
The Photo Slam is open to the public, but reservations are required. The cost is included in museum admission. Attendees are invited to a cash-bar reception before the event and a special after-hours viewing of the Brett Weston exhibit at 6 p.m. Wednesday.
