“Fringe is important because feminine art in Oklahoma City is vastly overlooked,” said Amanda Bradway. “Also, community is important, so getting a bunch of people together, whether male or female, 2-D or 3-D, is really impactful.”
For “Link,” Fringe’s first exhibition, 15 artists have interpreted the theme of the kinship of women, linked through the various roles they play in society. The theme offered a unique opportunity for those not used to adapting their art to a specific idea.
“It has changed how I create, because I feel like I’m back at school getting an assignment,” Cynthia Curry said. “I had to really think about it, rather than just going with the flow.”
Christie Hackler anticipates Fringe organizing four shows a year and hopes more artists join the monthly meetings.
