Now Showing in The Depot Gallery - Don Holladay - "Resistance"

Through February 24, 2019 @ The Depot

Don Holladay Art

Norman artist Don Holladay tells us that “Paul Tillich once wrote about the danger of modern man losing his humanity and becoming a thing amongst the things he produces. Creating art using non-traditional materials—burlap, string, house paint, joint compound, sand, collaged photographs, gravel and the like-- gives me a sense of resisting such fate.” Don Holladay has been painting since 1973. In the early 1990’s he studied printmaking at the University of Oklahoma under Dan Kiacz. His studio includes an etching press and many of his images originate from the printmaking process. His pieces are found in university, private and corporate collections.

Winter Wind Concert - Seth Glier

Sunday, February 24, 2019, 7:00pm @ The Depot

buy tickets 

Seth Glier’s fifth album, Birds, is the latest entry in a burgeoning career that has included a Grammy nomination and a pair of Independent Music Awards while touring with artists including Ani DiFranco and Ryan Adams. The songs on Birds range from personal to political, and are bound together by the awareness that our world is a fragile place that is all the more magical for it. Glier (pronounced “Gleer”) recorded Birds in an airy loft in western Massachusetts outfitted with a grand piano and floor-to-ceiling windows. Birds roosting just outside those windows, became his sympathetic audience while Glier made the album. “I felt a tremendous amount of comfort talking to the Birds,” he says “I’d check in with them regularly to see how they thought things were going so far.” Seth Glier was selected as the Member’s Choice Concert for Winter Wind by vote of Depot Members.

Winter Wind Concert - The Brother Brothers

Sunday, March 10, 2019, 7:00pm @ The Depot

buy tickets 

“The Brother Brothers have been in this together for life, and their familial connection comes through in the music, harkening back to some of the greatest family harmonies ever made. They tour as an acoustic duo: David on cello and guitar, and Adam on the 5-string fiddle. With individual storied music careers under their belts, the brothers have finally teamed up to bring their experiences together. They approach their poignant and often charming songs with an almost startling sense of ease, and the tight harmonies are enough to send shivers down anyone’s spine. Often leaning towards the darker, moody elements of Appalachian folk, and bluegrass traditions, their songs are laden with near perfect sibling harmonies or unison singing, compelling writing, and imaginative arrangements.
