Friday, July 3 – Saturday, July 25 –
Born and raised in Tulsa, ElQuan Okonjo, also known as ElQuan Delanoe, is an artist of multiple media, including photography, oils and acrylics and mixed media. In his latest exhibit, Con-va-les-cence, he used art to explore his struggles with mental illness. “This body of work deals with my own coming to terms with the realities of having a mental illness,” he said in his artist statement. “I found being myself was hard to accept. Making art has helped guide me through the difficult processes of transformation, of psychological healing and of mental regeneration.” Displayed at TAC Gallery through Saturday, July 25, Con-va-les-cence welcomes onlookers with an opening reception on Friday, July 3 from 6 to 9 p.m., as part of The Brady Arts District First Friday Art Crawl. TAC Gallery is open from 6 to 9 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday by appointment, or at another time by emailing [email protected]. For more information, visit www.tacgallery.org.
