February is the month we focus on artistry including making, collecting, admiring and learning. We love art because it gives us a glimpse into someone’s heart, the part of them we don’t see on the surface. We are all drawn to art in different ways. We like to look at and listen to art that makes us feel something, art that resonates with us. Through art, we learn about ourselves. 

As you read about the local artists in our community and their stories of passion and self-expression, we hope that you too are inspired to pursue what you love. After all, February is the month of love.

So, Tulsa, while you fill your home with chocolate truffles and roses this month, remember to fill your heart too. Find what makes you feel alive and share it with us. 

With affection,
