STILLWATER, Okla. — Postal Plaza Gallery Director Victoria Berry reflects on the last six months since the gallery opened and talks about upcoming exhibits in June, with an opportunity to meet one of the artists June 19.
1 How receptive has the community been so far to visiting the gallery and its events since opening six months ago?
We have experienced very encouraging attendance. We hope with our nine new exhibitions planned for this year there will be something interesting to keep our visitors coming back.

We are free, open six days a week and we offer community-centered programming during the summer months in our Malinda Berry Fischer Gallery.

We are excited to unveil Framing History: Selections from the Oklahoma State Senate Collection on July 7. More than 14 Oklahoma artists’ works that hang in our State Capitol will be on exhibit. A great show.
