Greater Tulsa Indian Art Festival

The Great Tulsa Indian Art’s Festival will be held at the Glenpool Conference Center, February 13th – 15th. The Festival is a national premier juried art show showcasing Native art, cuisine and entertainment. Daily admission is $8.00. Student/Senior Friday is $5.00, and a 3-day pass is $10.00

Artist Traci Rabbit is the 2015 Featured Artist. Rabbit is a Cherokee Nation citizen and daughter of Five Civilized Tribes Master Artist Bill Rabbit she was born in the Claremore Indian Hospital and grew up in the Pryor area.

Traci attended Northeastern State College in Tahlequah, OK, receiving a BA in Business Administration in 1993. Her desire was to work for the BIA or for the Cherokee Nation.

"My dad started selling my paintings to galleries when I was in high school and college. Upon graduation, I started attending art shows with my dad." Somehow, the art business just consumed her and she has never looked back. Her degree has been invaluable to her business.

Much of Traci's work captures a spirit in the Native American woman that embodies the best in female strength. From the proud lift of her chin to the strands of hair caught by the wind, she appears to weather all storms.

The Greater Tulsa Indian Art Festival is a non-profit organization sponsoring scholarships in visual and performing arts to qualified American Indian and Canadian Status Indian students. The Festival is a project of the National Monument and Institute, Inc. For more information about the event please visit http://www.tulsaindianartfestival.com

Mother Road at the Hardesty Arts Center

Mother Road, An exploration of Route 66 by artist Jessica Harvey, will be on display at the Arts and Humanities Council of Tulsa’s Hardesty Arts Center located at 101 E. Archer St. in Downtown Tulsa through November 23rd.  Entrance is free and open to the public!

Mother Road is a project derived from the history and myths that come from traveling Route 66, which illustrates journeys – both personal and shared – through road trips, driving and discovery.  Artist Jessica Harvey displays artifacts and photographs from her own Route 66 odyssey, and invites the public to explore her studio at AHHA where they may offer their own personal artifacts and record individual stories and memories.  This shared project aims to reveal how a diverse group of people collectively feel about travel, Americana, and the culture of the great American road trip.

Harvy  is an artist who explores the myths we create for ourselves and nature while trying to preserve a more desired history. Harvey earned her MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art in 2009, and she returned to Chicago from Iceland after being awarded a Fulbright Grant for the 2011-2012 year. There, she photographed the remaining military structures that are still present from the United States’ occupation of Iceland, which began during World War II, and the U.S. military presence continued until 2006. During her time there she also collected stories from various Icelanders who had a connection to the U.S. military bases in Iceland as well as U.S. soldiers who were stationed there. She has exhibited throughout the United States and in Iceland at places such as the Urban Institute for Contemporary Art in Grand Rapids, MI; Johalla Projects in Chicago, IL; The Center for Contemporary Photography in Detroit, MI; and the Cranbrook Art Museum.

Metallica's Kirk Hammett hosts inaugural 'Fear FestEvil' in SF

Award-winning Metallica guitarist and horror aficionado Kirk Hammett is showing off his collection of horror-film memorabilia at Fear FestEvil, the inaugural edition of Hammett's new horror and metal convention at the Regency Ballroom this weekend.

The full name of the event is Kirk Von Hammett’s FEAR FestEvil

The inaugural event will feature highlights of Hammett’s world famous Crypt Collection (including some of the most valuable horror collectibles in the world) inside the Regency Ballroom's spectacular former Masonic temple, an extensive array of panels, live music, vendors and special guests. Attendees will also have the opportunity to wander through out the venue and experience various "haunting areas" for one-of-a-kind scares. There will even be a taxidermy class held on-site at the feastival. 

Krik told KTVU his love for the horror genre came from watching 'Creature Features' with Bob Wilkins on Channel Two in the 60's and 70's. "I've come full-circle," said Kirk. "I used to watch Creature Features every Saturday night…Bob Wilkins was one of my big inspirations."

Fear FestEvil will also feature live music with performances by an array of metal bands including headlining sets by local thrash legends Exodus (Hammett's first band before joining Metallica) and Carcass on Friday and Death Angel, Orchid and Death Division on Saturday. Hammett is scheduled to join both Exodus and Death Angel onstage at the festival, and with additional metal luminaries like Anthrax founder Scott Ian, legendary guitarist Slash and Slayer's Kerry King also on hand for Saturday's events, the possibility of a historic thrash-metal jam to close the festival is a distinct possibility.
