Stillwater-area artists will display their work at annual show

STILLWATER, Okla. — The Stillwater Art Guild will host its annual Spring Show from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday at the Stillwater Community Center.

Stillwater Art Guild President Roxanne Parrow said this year’s judge is Rick McClure, who will evaluate the art on display Thursday.

“We try to find a different artist each year and he’s a really well known artist in Oklahoma City,” Parrow said. “He has a lot of workshops and he’s done a demonstration for us before, and he’s also been one of our judges before in a previous year.”

Parrow said there will be approximately 65 paintings and photos on display this year.

Awards will be handed out in categories including “People’s Choice” in which those attending can vote for their favorite, and “Best of Show” which will be decided by McClure.

The trophy presentation will follow local artist Lynn Schwartz, who will be give an informal “Gallery Talk” at 1:30 p.m.

“She’s going to critique each painting or photograph and point out to us the good points of it and how it might have been made better,” Parrow said.

In addition, there will be demonstrations by artists in various media during the show.

“We have a lot of good talent, and we have some well known artists,” she said. “We have some very interesting art. Several of our members are professional artists.”

Parrow said around 100 to 150 people typically attend the annual event.

“It can be a family event especially for children who are interested in art,” she said.

The event is free. For more information, visit or call (405) 880-6049.
