Jim Cobb Painting

The Depot Gallery will open “Variations on Themes,” an exhibit of paintings by Dr. Jim Cobb, with a reception from 6 to 9 pm in conjunction with the July 14th, 2017 2nd Friday Art Walk and The Depot's “Back on Track” Celebration. The exhibit, in the newly restored Santa Fe Depot at 200 S. Jones, continues through August 27.

“There are so many subjects from which to choose” Dr. Cobb says. “This is true every day when I arrive at the studio. My aim, as an artist, and for this show at The Depot, is to select a variety of themes to make it interesting and to try to convince the viewer (as well as myself) that I am reasonably capable of painting all of them.”

Summer Breeze Concert - The Cave Singers

Sunday, July 23, 2017, 7:30pm @ Lions Park

free 

Former Pretty Girls Make Graves member Derek Fudesco teamed up with Pete Quirk (of Hint Hint) and Marty Lund (of Cobra High) and began playing in the Seattle area as The Cave Singers. Given the rising popularity of meditative, folky indie acts in the early 2000s, forming a twangy, rootsy folk trio was probably the least surprising move Derek Fudesco could have made. Following the band's first full-length LP, Invitation Songs, the band was joined by former Blood Brothers bassist Morgan Henderson. The Cave Singers released their crowd funded fifth album, Banshee, in February 2016.

Summer Breeze Concert - John Fullbright

Sunday, August 20, 2017, 7:30pm @ Lions Park

free 

Okemah native John Fullbright's 2012 debut release, From the Ground Up, propelled him to the musical forefront. "... a killer debut, pairing sharply worded stories that resonate with confident performances that pop." said The Washington Times. The album peaked at #10 on the Billboard Top Folk Albums chart and was nominated for a Grammy Award in the category Best Americana Album. The Wall Street Journal review of Songs, Fulbright’s 2014 release, says “Songs is a warm, winning and plainspoken Americana album that builds on the authority and charm of From The Ground Up by its clarity and simmering intensity.” Fullbright was selected by members of The Depot as the “Members Choice” Concert for 2017.
