Artists Jamie Pettis and Jack Fowler Team Up for "Love Is OK" in Phoenix

Phoenix resident and Oklahoma City native Jamie Pettis brings her portrait-centric collection of vibrantly colored art to Grand Avenue's {9} The Gallery for an opening First Friday, February 7, from 7 to 11 p.m. She brings with her longtime OKC friend and fellow artist, Jack Fowler, whose work ranges from portraits to landscapes to sculptures, and basically anything else he feels like experimenting with. The show, "Love Is OK," will remain on view for a month.

Pettis and Fowler talked to Jackalope Ranch about what inspires them, why they love the Oklahoma art scene and are excited about Phoenix's, and how they know making art is their true calling.
