ON THE FRINGE
THEY are the women of “Fringe”, Oklahoma’s latest arts organization made up entirely of female artists. Born from the late night musings of an Oklahoma City metal sculptor, Fringe has assembled 25 talented team members, all submitting to a strict application process. The scrutiny paid off. The first two Fringe exhibits saw hundreds of patrons and now, one year after it’s conception, the group has its own gallery.
From paintings, to mosaics, to metal and wood work, the ladies of Fringe cover all mediums.
Join Gallery on OETA to meet the founder and talk to the women who are driving this new endeavor to nurture female artists On The Fringe.

The Subjective Horse
She is an Oklahoma artist who’s work is well known nationwide. Jean Richardson paints the horse in abstract, though say it is impressionism. Her paintings are large and subjective. For Richardson, her horses are not horses, they are a metaphor for the human spirit. A wall covering work can be about a single word, power, freedom, solitude or exhilaration. But no matter what the word is, the work is ultimately about Richardson, who she is and where she is in her life.
Her bold paintings capture the eye and the mind and they capture the imagination. A Richardson work is a study in The Subjective Horse.
Gallery takes you inside the studio and the mind of Jean Richardson in April.
