Underground art exhibits tells travel stories through paintings, photos 

Lining the tunneled walls of The Underground is a series of artful postcards from the travels of several Oklahomans.

"Traveling Through Artists' Eyes," is the latest exhibit at the Invited Artists Gallery in the newly remodeled underground Conncourse in downtown Oklahoma City.

The postcards "? actually bold and vivid photographs, paintings and drawings "? document locations from around the world, including:
" Ireland,
" England,
" Costa Rica,
" Norway and
" other countries.

LANDMARKS
Oklahoma City artist Romy Owens, who said she typically works in mixed media, has a set of photographs of British landmarks. Owens said the "straightforward" approach to the photos lends well to the "ordinary" nature of some of the photos.

"The ordinary things usually go underappreciated," she said. "Some things that you see every day that you might never notice really do have beauty."

One of Owens' photographs is of a sign in a London subway warning travelers to "mind the gap" "? the space near the whizzing subway cars and the platform. Owens said the omnipresent warning was repeated constantly on signs and over intercoms "? something that she found amusing. 

The gallery is located in The Underground Conncourse beneath Robinson and Robert S. Kerr avenues. The exhibit is open from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday until Oct. 5.
