2021 Honoree - Connie Segall

ARTIST CONNIE SEGALL lives life on her own terms. She has neither an answering machine nor a computer. She wears no watch. She goes to bed at 4 p.m. and gets up at 1 a.m. Then she walks her three dogs and has coffee, goes to an all-night gym to swim, and comes home to rest. At about 5:30 a.m., she starts painting. She paints on-and-off all day.

Her ranch-style home is one large artist’s studio. The walls are covered floor to ceiling with her paintings. Acrylics and watercolors — she specializes in painting women and cats — are stacked and piled everywhere. Oversized paintings are leaned against every surface.

  • Michael Palazzo

I choose to make visuals that strike the heart, my heart then perhaps yours. The emotional exploration involved in art is what allows us to see, and at times it shows us how it is significantly different from something that merely accents the furniture. All I ask is when you make your view, or your stance, make sure you look close, you might miss someone's soul.

  • Bobby Price

An artist statement...huh...an artist statement...I smile when hear that, as I consider myself an “accidental” artist. Art and the creation of art came to me very late in life but in a short time is making a profound difference in my path. A chance encounter with an enthusiastic artist started my transition from engineer to artist.

  • Josh Stout

Art, my outlet has become my voice. The filtration between the brain and the hand. A direct influence of every experience in my life combined towards a single subject. Born an artist. My entire life has led to being an artist. Creating, exploring and experiencing life and how it affects one’s outlook on the world. Ultimately how all these views are transferred through a medium.

Fashion Show

The Champagne and Chocolate Runway Show is intended to highlight the unique talents the Tulsa arts community has to offer and encourage past, present, and future member artists to display their creativity at Living Arts and continue creating art that makes you talk.

This year, due to COVID, the fundraiser will be primarily virtual. All programming and exhibition information will be in a hybrid format with opportunities to be in person and online. This runway show will be in person for a limited audience (if CDC and local health department guidance allows), with all COVID procedures taken and followed. The show will also be streaming online as part of the fundraiser.

Please note: this runway show will be juried, meaning that a committee of artists and creators will be selecting the works that are featured in this show. There will be a prize of $400 to the first place winner, $200 to the second-place winner, and $100 to the third-place winner.
