Oklahoma City, OK (Jan. 26, 2015) – The Paseo Arts Association's Annual Member Show will take place Friday, Feb. 5, at the Paseo Art Space (3022 Paseo). The opening reception for this juried exhibition will coincide with the Paseo Arts District's First Friday Gallery Walk from 6-10 p.m.

The PAA's Annual Member Show showcases the best works created by the Paseo's supportive members.  It is open to two and three-dimensional work in any media, but can't be larger than 40 inches. 2016's Juror, Jose Rodriguez, a Venezuelan artist living and teaching in Oklahoma City, has selected the featured works and will award one Best in Show, two Merit Awards, and two Honorable Mentions.

A portion of the proceeds from the artists' sales will go to the Paseo Arts Association. "We're excited to host this show again this year in the Paseo Art Space, says Amanda Bleakley, Executive Director. "We get some really fabulous art and we're so proud to exhibit it!"

The Paseo is Oklahoma City's unique arts destination, located between NW 27th & 30th Streets and Walker & Hudson. Each First Friday, Paseo galleries offer special themed exhibits, refreshments, guest artists and a variety of live entertainment – all within walking distance.

More than 80 artists in the Paseo's 22 galleries participate. Three restaurants and a handful of shops round out the Paseo's unique atmosphere.
