If you have recently visited the newly renovated Mayo Hotel, you have no doubt witnessed Rodney Bryan Pratz bold artistic expression within the collection of painted vintage doors that adorned the lobby entryway. Or, perhaps you’ve seen his inspiring bronze sculpture given as the “Power to Dream Achiever Award” for the D.R.E.A.M. Institute. If you haven’t had the chance to view his unique collection in person, you are in luck because another opportunity to view the work of this upcoming artist is on the way.
Rodney Pratz is unveiling his first public art exhibit “Anonymity” at one of downtown Tulsa’s premier local arts scenes, the Living ArtSpace. Recently described as the “epitome of don’t-take-yourself-too-seriously elegance and style”, Rodney has decided to make this the underlying theme of his upcoming exhibit. Although he works in a variety of mediums, this show will be spotlighting classic yet understated pieces of Rodney’s two favorites: oil painting and sculpture. The exhibit illustrates Rodney’s appreciation for individuality through a collection of dynamic black and white portraits featuring an array of male and female physiques. Elements of the canvasses further come to life through a series of sculptures tying into the paintings and the essence that each embodies.
Rodney’s work will be on display at the Living ArtSpace from April 25 through April 29. All the work displayed will be available for purchase. The opening of this exhibit will be held Sunday, April 25, 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. Join the artist for champagne and chocolates at the opening by rsvping at email@example.com. The Living ArtSpace is located at 307 E. Brady, in downtown Tulsa. The exhibit will be open to the public Tuesday and Wednesday 1-5 p.m., and Thursday 1-9 p.m.
