Heiroglyphics 2017: The Spirt of our People

at Oklahoma Contemporary Arts Center
 
 

Local artist Ginna Dowling’s hieroglyphs are contemporary versions of ancient symbols. Using the simplest of methods—tearing construction paper by hand—she constructs visual symbols for important aspects of her own life, as well as the lives of people around her. These forms are translated into vinyl, which she develops into site-specific installations. In addition to creating her own forms, Ginna works with members of the community to add onto her installations. She finds that the simplicity of the process allows everyone to explore their own creativity.

Visitors can also drop in during Showroom hours (11 am-6 pm Wednesday through Saturday) to create their own “hieroglyphics.” Oklahoma Contemporary’s Showroom is located at 1146 N. Broadway Dr. in Automobile Alley.
