Indoor Galleries

Mayfest’s Invitational Gallery showcases art from over 100 of Tulsa’s finest artists in oil, metal, photography, and many other specialties. Every item in the invitational gallery is also available for sale. The Invitational Gallery is also where you can see the annual official Mayfest poster art. The Invitational Gallery will be open Thursday 11:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m., Friday 11:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m., Saturday 11:00 a.m. -6:00 p.m., Sunday 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. and is sponsored by Williams Center Towers I & II and The Gelvin Foundation. If you would like to meet some of these great local artists displaying in the Invitational Gallery, many of them will be volunteering during the festival. You can check out their schedule here.

Every year, Mayfest’s Youth Art Gallery displays a wide variety of art from the younger generations with awards for the best budding artists. The Youth Art Gallery will be open Thursday-Saturday 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m. – 3 p.m.

New in 2016 is the Pop Art Music Gallery. Tulsa International Mayfest, in partnership with WPX Energy and the Arts & Humanities Council of Tulsa, offered an after-school art program to all fifth and sixth graders at Hawthorne Elementary School. Lauren Lunsford, the Artist in Residence at the Arts & Humanities Council of Tulsa, instructed the students over a five-week period creating the art on display in this gallery. The theme of the classes revolved around music and pop art, and the students studied artists like Andy Warhol. These students, who have no art program at their school, received instruction in various mediums and types of art.

This is the fourth year that Mayfest and WPX Energy have worked with children at Hawthorne to create art for their education and enjoyment, as well as for the festival. Currently at Hawthorne, no art programs are offered. It’s exciting to see what children can create when given the opportunity.

The Pop Art Music Gallery will be open in the Downtown YMCA at 418 S. Main St. May 13th-22nd. Hours for May 3rd – May 14th are 5 a.m. – 8 p.m. Monday – Friday, 7 a.m. – 2 p.m. Saturday and 1 p.m. – 5 p.m. Sunday. During Mayfest, the hours will be 11 a.m. – 8 p.m. Thursday – Friday, 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. Saturday and 1 p.m. – 5 p.m. Sunday and is sponsored by WPX Energy.
