Oklahoma Contemporary Arts Center, 3000 General Pershing Blvd., is celebrating its summer exhibition “Sojourning,” showcasing the fiber art of Chiyoko Myose, Saturday with a musical performance and family-friendly activities.

“Sojourning” is a solo exhibition of fiber installations by Myose, a Japanese artist who has been living in Wichita, Kansas, for the past 20 years. With her works, Myose expresses her experiences of living in a foreign country; she considers herself as a sojourner, a person who stays in one place temporarily, like a traveler.

The exhibit includes her installation “A Thread X (Meets) A Thread,” to which gallery visitors can tie their own provided own threads.

Oklahoma Contemporary will be offering additional hands-on Make +Take activities for children Saturday, according to a news release. A family-friendly gallery talk in the exhibit is planned at 2 p.m.

Saturday’s festivities also will feature a performance of “Sojourning Threads,” a chamber music piece in response to Myose’s installations composed by Daniel Racer, a composer and professor at Friends University in Wichita. Visitors can watch Racer, Cindy Thompson and Kay Buskirk take part in open rehearsals from 10 a.m. to noon, followed by the performance at 3 p.m.

Oklahoma Contemporary is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday. For more information, go to oklahomacontemporary.org or call 951-0000.
