Live!  At the Electric Lime Gala artists Matt Moffett, Toni Perry, Katherine Droz will be painting on our rooftop capturing the beautiful Tulsa views!  Each artist will have their own unique production ready for you to hang in your home and commemorate Discovery Lab’s opening year!  Must be present to bid!

Live painting is not included in 'Best of Live' 

Toni Perry 

Toni Perry is an abstract expressionist whose  paintings adorn the walls of businesses and homes across the country.  Primarily her works are multimedia using inks and heavy acrylics, often layered with a thick coat of epoxy resin for brilliant dimension.  Toni is especially excited to create a cityscape for the Electric Lime Gala. Her painting represents the cityscape through the eyes of a child, with  a collage of layers of acrylic paints between 2 glass like coats of resin on a 36×48×1.5 wood panel. 

Other examples of Toni's bright and bold,  dark and moody  works can be seen around town on a very large scale at the Artery, PLNK Tulsa  and J Cole shoes.


Matt Moffett

Matt Moffett has been creating art for 26 years.  Matt specializes in pet and human portraits and bright colored cityscapes.  His art style is known  as “Loose Magical Realism”, usually using symbolism to denote a fantasy or sense of magic.  “I create in a loose painterly manner, I prefer to use lots of color and create pieces that will be on display for generations to come.” Matt has artwork in 17 countries and also works with metal, clay and mosaics. “Picasso is an icon to me. He works in 12 different art mediums and reached international notoriety during his lifetime. I lived in Spain, in the city of Málaga, where he was born and I studied his work extensively over the years.” Matt taught art in Tulsa Public Schools and co-founded and ran The Tulsa Girls Art School for ten years. “The world is chaotic and intense. I create artwork that I hope brings a meditative moment or smile to the viewer. I like to play with the spectrum to make the piece catch your eye and draw you in.” Matt’s work can be seen on his website or on his Instagram page @m2art.  His studio is located in Downtown Tulsa.
