Nestled in the heart of the historic Paseo arts district, In Your Eye Studio & Gallery is home to a small, distinctive group of artists. Creating art in bold, diverse styles, they exhibit a striking array of two- or three-dimension pieces. The media they use are as diverse as their styles and includes: acrylic, oil, photography, fiber, mixed media, wood, jewelry and basketry.
Besides the ever-changing, compelling artwork in the main gallery, In Your Eye hosts monthly exhibits in the back gallery. These exhibits may debut a new artistic path by one of its member artists, introduce a guest artist, or even host an exhibit by an organization that benefits the Oklahoma City area. Always fresh and ever engaged with the community,
In Your Eye is open Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from noon to 5pm, and for Paseo’s monthly First Friday Gallery Walk from 6 to 10pm.

ArtNow, an annual exhibition and art sale, showcases works from Oklahoma’s top artists. The ArtNow event, held on the final night of the exhibition, helps to raise funds to keep Oklahoma Contemporary exhibitions free of charge to the public throughout the year. The Oklahoma artists featured in the exhibit also attend the party so that guests can learn about the artists’ works and creative process.
The 2017 exhibition will run Jan. 9-20, ending with the "party with a purpose" the night of Jan. 20. Event details, including how to purchase tickets, can be found here.
