The January Oklahomans for Equality (OkEq) showcase and exhibit of local artists at the Dennis R. Neill Equality Center will feature an exhibit with a show of works by Evelyn House. The event begins with a reception on Thursday, January 3 from 6-9 p.m. and continuing throughout the month.

House was born and raised in Oklahoma City and has immersed herself in the art scene of Oklahoma. She uses acrylics and resin to create her art on materials ranging from canvas to wood rounds and birch panels; she also uses resin to make jewelry and homewares.

The artist has been fascinated with colors since she was a little girl.

“In my studio, I am a scientist in search of the next experimental chemical reaction to blend colors and pop open cells. Using a resin base with mixed media creates a unique mirror-like finish,” she said. “I build up multiple layers of resin to create a depth that cannot be captured by a camera.”

When she is not in the studio, she takes care of three rambunctious boys, two dogs, a mean ole cat and a fussy husband.

“You can find me on my porch or a walk most evenings sipping wine and enjoying nature. Being an artist in this world is important to me as I want my kids to see that their dreams can come true if they work hard and have a passion that cannot be put out by rejection.”

The show begins with a reception on Thursday, January 3, from 6-9 p.m. at the Dennis R. Neill Equality Center, located at 621 E. 4th Street in Downtown Tulsa. There will be a door prize drawn at the reception with the winner receiving a piece of work from the artist. The show continues throughout January.
