June 8 - July 14, 2018
Marissa Raglin is an Oklahoma City visual artist and is the 2017-18 Skirvin Paseo Artist in Residence at the Skirvin Hilton Hotel located in downtown Oklahoma City. Currently working in analog collage and resin, she can be found knee-deep in old illustration books and magazines plucked from thrift stores and half-priced book shops. Raglin earned her BA in Studio Art from Oklahoma Baptist University with an emphasis in painting. However, she always found herself gravitating to works on paper. It was not until 2014 that Raglin picked up the Xacto knife and began working in collage. Raglin is a 2015 Artist Inc. Live OKC Fellow and works as the Director of Museum Experience at the Oklahoma Hall of Fame and Gaylord-Pickens Museum.
Raglin’s exhibition Horizons will open with an opening reception from 6 to 10 p.m. on Friday, June 8, 2018 as a part of the 2nd Friday Norman Art Walk and be celebrated with a closing reception the following month from 6 to 10 p.m. on Friday, July 13, 2018. She’ll share the main gallery space with J. Chris Johnson, while John Shaefer will show works in The Library Gallery.
MAINSITE Contemporary Art — located at 122 E. Main Street in the Walker Arts District of Downtown Norman, OK — is open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday. All receptions and gallery hours are free and open to the public.
