No Parking Studios and the Ah Haa School for the Arts collide in Telluride, on March 2nd, the start of a month-long exhibition blurring the lines between Pop, contemporary sculpture and wearable art, first presented on the runway of the TAB fashion gala February 23rd through 25th.

The No Parking Studios exhibition, “Fabrics From the Distant Sun,” features work by NOPS members Antonio Andrews, Tyler James, Cruz Thompson, and Deren Walker. Along with 2D and sculptural works, NOPS artists have created wearable art pieces – handcrafted artistic expressions that sit at the crossroads of visual art and fashion. Jumpsuits featured on the Telluride Aids Benefit Fashion runway were hand-painted by NOPS artist Tyler James. Those one-of-a-kind pieces reflect James’s creative voice and reference his 2D works.

“We’re excited and honored to be the upcoming visiting artists at Telluride’s Ah Haa School for the Arts,” said Antonio Andrews, founder and artist of No Parking Studios. “We’ve been hard at work preparing new pieces for this exhibition premiere. In addition to collaborating with Ah Haa and TAB, we’re looking forward to engaging with the community in Telluride and hosting a class focused on unconventional art making on March 3.

NOPS comes to Telluride on the heels of a successful exhibition at Art Basel in Miami, in partnership with the Ah Haa School for the Arts, where their new show, “Fabrics From The Distant Sun” opens March 2nd.

“Fabrics” imagines the NOPS artists as intergalactic ambassadors, bringing artifacts from the Universe of Tulsa to Telluride. Paintings, sculptures, and one-of-a-kind hand-printed wearable art will fill the Ah Haa gallery in an explosion of color and cool.

About No Parking Studios:

Based in Tulsa, Oklahoma, No Parking Studios (NOPS) launched in 2016 with a community-centered and history-rich focus.

NOPS believes in pushing the envelope and capturing the distinct culture of the underrepresented North Tulsa/Greenwood community that was once known as Black Wall Street.

With the history of the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre and the burning of Black Wall Street, NOPS is committed to honoring the past, as well as being a part of building the community to be more prosperous, vocal, and celebrated than it ever was before. This overarching mission is manifested through fine, physical art and deeply rooted through the beats and sound waves produced.
