Art Show Features Thunderbird Artists Collective
By Tourism Industry Partner
The Sheltered Memories art show and sale will feature the work of the Thunderbird Artists Collective at 7pm on Saturday, Oct. 23rd at the Norman Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, 1309 W. Boyd. The show offers work from several of the collective’s artists in a variety of mediums. Other collective members will read original poetry. There will be a special performance by the Norman Belly Dance Club. Music will be provided by Mark Hatton of Altus with a medley of instrumental pieces on a 12 string guitar. The sale is “no commission” with all of the proceeds going to the artists. The show is being directed by local artist and Firehouse Art Center faculty member, Pam Bradford.
“The talent and creativity of the artists in the Collective is inspiring. We are very excited about the opportunity to share their work with the Norman community.', noted Pam Sanford, Director of the Thunderbird Clubhouse.
Thunderbird Clubhouse was established in 1991 as a community of men and women working through mental illness. The non-profit agency operates on the international “Clubhouse” model. Its consumer driven approach focuses on a person’s unique strengths and abilities, rather than their illness. Thunderbird Clubhouse offers members pre-vocational training, paid employment, housing opportunities, and a variety of social and recreational activities.
Wine and cheese will be offered. Admission, $5. The event is co-sponsored by the Norman Unitarian Universalist Fellowship and the Unitarian Universalist Community Church. For information, please call Susan at 226-9712.
