Photography exhibit featuring images by Doug Hoke on view at the PhotoArt Gallery
By Rick Rogers
| Published: February 6, 2013
The PhotoArt Gallery, 1738 NW 16, will feature the photography of Doug Hoke in an exhibit opening Thursday with a 5:30 to 8 p.m. reception. Titled “The Metro: Through the Eyes of Doug Hoke,” the exhibit will showcase 40 color and black-and-white images taken throughout central Oklahoma. Hoke's subjects include macro, rural and urban scenes and automobiles.
“I've lived in the Oklahoma City metro my entire life, most of that with a camera in tow,” said Hoke, director of photography at The Oklahoman. “As a photographer for almost 40 years, looking, watching, observing and taking notice of what is special or different is second nature to me.
“What makes something special to me? It may be the way the light hits an object that catches my eye, or an unusual interaction between subjects. In my eye, tiny details or the blurring of color can transform the ordinary into something new and abstract. Through these photographs I hope to make visible what you may have overlooked.”
“The Metro” will remain on view through March 4. For more information, call 557-0924.
