Brady Craft, Inc. 108|Contemporary
108|Contemporary is a nonprofit community arts organization with a mission to support Oklahoma's contemporary fine craft artists by connecting them to audiences and opportunities through education, recognition and exhibition programming. In 2017, they served nearly 35,000 individuals. 108|Contemporary opened their gallery space in the Tulsa Arts District in March 2013 and they have become admired for the quality of their exhibitions. They have created a craft community that facilitates partnerships with artists, collectors, curators, museums and educators. They present educational opportunities for all ages about contemporary fine craft. Their programs are built around six exhibitions each year that are relevant and informative to local and regional communities. Their programs give audiences the opportunity to directly interact with local and visiting artists. They focus on connecting participants with present-day artists who build upon traditional craftwork in new and informative ways. They have found that special needs groups respond especially well to the intuitive qualities of fine craft. Programs are provided free to social services groups, including seniors, veterans and individuals with challenges.
