Feb. 13--NORMAN -- A closing reception for "Three Artists All Over the Place" and a performance by singer/songwriter John Calvin will be featured Friday at the Santa Fe Depot as part of the Second Friday Circuit of Art.

The paintings of Heidi James, Sylvia Miller and Patricia Foster have been on display at the depot gallery at 200 S Jones Ave. for the past month. The exhibit ends Friday, with a reception for the three artists and performances by Calvin between 7 and 9 p.m.

"Selfie: An Exploration on Identity" is on display at Mainsite Contemporary Art, 122 E Main St., featuring local and national artists who have created introspective works born out of their backgrounds, cultures and life experiences.

Also featured at Mainsite is "Buddha Tuesdays," a collection of work from Linda Lou Warren, Kay Hoke-Evans, Charlotte Gibbens and Lacy Leverett-Saak. Small Buddha sculptures, corpse drawings, painted clay canvases and a variety of other items are part of the exhibit.

Stash at 412 E Main will host a benefit to raise funds for the Norman Animal Shelter. "Share the Love, Save the Fluff" will begin at 6 p.m. To raise awareness for all dogs and cats, Stash is featuring an art show with live music, a silent auction and food trucks.

Dreamer Concepts, 324 E Main, will host a reception for students from Woodrow Wilson Elementary School, who recently completed an art education project based on the paintings of the Australian Aboriginal people.

Dreamer Concepts, which sponsors the project annually, said it plans to expand it next year to other elementary schools.
