Analog Girl Art: Brooke Rowlands at DNA Gallery

Collage with Magnolias by Brooke Rowlands

Collage with Magnolias by Brooke Rowlands
As I’ve mentioned before, Oklahoma has wonderful artists, some native to our plains, others, like Brooke Rowlands, have transplanted themselves into our precious red dirt. Brooke has made Oklahoma her home since 2002, after a move from New Jersey and we are grateful that she has brought with her her wonderful talent and creativity, along with her personal experiences from the places she’s lived.
Her technique and style are dynamic, which she applies to create fantastical worlds using painting and collage work while playing with realistic and graphic elements. Brooke draws inspiration from artists that she admires and loves. Her appreciation of Georgia O’Keefe’s larger than life flowers is whispered in her Collage with Magnolias, shown above.
She’s taken her enjoyment of Bob Ross’s happy-tree-filled landscapes and created lyrical landscapes of her own, as in the solemn and poetic landscape shown below.

On July 9th, you can see Brooke Rowlands’s work during her solo show at the oh so very eccentric DNA Gallery in the Plaza District. I am so eager to stroll down Plaza and see what art I can get my little, paint dabbed hands on. I will, of course, have to visit the DNA Gallery to see Brooke’s work. I hope to see you there.

During winter break, I started my coop plans--all the things coops had to have and the best way to build it so that that it would not be something my neighbors would mind seeing as they step outside their houses. I must add that I have the BEST neighbors in the world.

I bought chickens in March and by April, they were ready to be outside of the brooder I had built them. So, the coop started to go up. About three weeks (most of it during Spring break and then a couple of weekends following), half of a pinkie nail, and five hundred dollars later, my coop was finished and the chickens seemed to have made th…
