Where to see art in Tulsa this month
How to get your hands on some Artifacts.
Artists in Action at Color Connection Gallery Skim the schedule below for the painting lessons of your choice. Each Saturday in January, a different Color Connection artist will demonstrate his or her art-making methods. First, take advantage of a great chance to learn techniques from established artists. Second, if you plan to purchase work from this cozy Utica Square gallery, this is a rare opportunity to see the artists at work and gain insight and talking points about the piece you’ll be hanging on your wall. Presentations are free and open to the public. All ages are welcome. Demonstrations offered from 11 a.m. - 3 p.m. Color Connection, 2050 Utica Square; 742-0515

Jan. 16-April 26 — “Fallingwater en Perspectiva: Félix de la Concha Paints Frank Lloyd Wright’s House on the Waterfall”
Architect Frank Lloyd Wright’s only skyscraper, now home to the Price Tower Arts Center, is the perfect place for this show centered on one of Wright’s most renowned structures, the Fallingwater home. This 20th century modernist house is nestled in lush Pennsylvania forest and situated atop a waterfall. Félix de la Concha spent a year painting renderings that capture Wright’s capacity to create harmony between architecture and nature. Price Tower Arts Center, 510 Dewey Ave., Bartlesville; 336-4949; www.pricetower.org
1,2,3 new ways to gather art from Artifacts gallery Last fall, Artifacts gallery relocated to the Del Ray Building’s first and second floors, just above the covert but ever-happening Cellar Dweller bar. The move brings you fresh ways to view and purchase local art.
1. In addition to traditional gallery openings, local developers Sean Griffin and his wife, Kristen Bergman, will host intimate, private showings in their third-floor loft. Part of the proceeds from these openings will link to local fund-raisers.
2. Meanwhile, the Artifacts office, overseen by curator Brian Arneecher, will continue to display works along its walls, as well as make a large amount of unframed art available. Visit from 10 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
3. Looking to commission a work of art? Artifacts plans to increase efforts connecting artists with interested patrons.
