Paseo FEAST (Funding Emerging Art with Sustainable Tactics), the unique micro-funding program for artists of all disciplines, proudly announces the artists for its next event: The Garden Project, Ghostlight Theater Club, Hartel Dance Studio, Erin Latham, and Rhia Winkleman. At each FEAST event, five artists are selected to present a project to a group of diners who each have a ballot. The artist with the most votes earns a grant based on the evening’s ticket sales. Previous grant amounts have ranged from $800-$1900 per event. Our next event will take place on October 15, 2013, 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. at the Old Farmers Market, 300 S. Klein, Oklahoma City. Tickets are $10 or $35 and can be purchased through

GHOSTLIGHT Ghostlight Theatre Club hopes to launch a fourth annual run of its popular irreverent holiday tradtion, Screw the Eggnog, Pass the Rum. Ghostlight describes the play as a hilarious annual holiday revue consisting of original sketch comedy and live music. This play is written and performed entirely by Oklahoma artists, the only holiday theatrical event of its kind in the city.

Hartel Dance presents their multidisciplinary dance performance “What’s Love Got to Do With It?” As Artistic Director Austin Hartel describes, this work will explore “the many facets of relationship, connection, networks, and rituals that define our lives,” This performance will be a part of Hartel Dance Group’s 4th Season of performances in Oklahoma City, and this group is proud to continually present cutting edge, collaborative dance pieces to the Oklahoma City community. FEAST funds would go towards production costs, costumes and set construction.

Erin LathamErin Latham, visual artist, presents work that introduces Oklahomans to the Scottish law known as “Right to Roam.”  According to this law, the public has the right to travel freely about the countryside regardless of who owns the land, as long as they follow three basic guidelines: respect the interests and privacy of landowners, care for the environment, take responsibility for your own actions.” Latham plans, if chosen for the FEAST grant, to present an exhibition in Oklahoma encouraging the public to roam and learn more about the land around us.

The artists of The Garden Project- Adrienne Wright and Lisa McIlroy- seek to create a constructed landscape meant for public interaction. The artists describe the project in their proposal: “The purpose of The Garden Project is.. to create a space that the public can experience and enjoy [and] to help raise awareness of the positive impact that a beautiful, functional space can have on a community.”

Balance: Art + Design proposes a curated group art exhibition titled “Balance: Art + Design,” to open at Norman’s Mainsite Gallery in early 2014. This exhibition would focus solely on artists who are also graphic designers. As Winkelman describes, “Behind Oklahoma’s rising fame is its interconnected graphic design community, because we use it… to communicate a social message, to tell the story about ourselves, or to promote Oklahoma.”

If you’d like to hear more from any of these artists, please make plans to attend FEAST on October 15! For more information, please call Jennifer at 405-525-2688.
