Artist to host socials
Oklahoma City University's artist in residence Mike Wimmer will host art socials in the university's studios each month through April. The events are free to the public and are appropriate for all ages and artistic skill levels.
The drawing and painting socials will be from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Jan. 28, Feb. 25, March 25 and April 29 in the Norick Art Center at NW 26 Street and Blackwelder Avenue. Participants should bring their own art supplies.
ABC's new cooking competition series, “The Taste,” featuring Anthony Bourdain, British food star Nigella Lawson, expert chef/author Ludo Lefebvre and chef/restaurateur Brian Malarkey premieres with a two-hour episode starting at 7 p.m. Tuesday.
“The Taste” puts 16 culinary competitors — pro chefs to home cooks — to the test as notable food masters will judge their creations based on a blind taste test. Each of the four culinary superstars and “Taste” mentors — Bourdain, Lawson, Lefebvre and Malarkey — will coach a team of four competing pro and amateur cooks chosen from a nationwide casting call.
‘Runway' star to visit OKC
Bridal season is well under way and this weekend, brides (and debutantes)-to-be have a chance to meet and shop the bridal fashions of Austin Scarlett, a New York designer recognized for his personally glamorous style almost as much as the fashions he creates. Scarlett is known for his appearances on the first season of “Project Runway.”
Scarlett will debut his first collection of wedding gowns and debutante fashions in a trunk show at JJ Kelly Bridal Salon, 12325 N May, Friday and Saturday. For reservations, call 752-0029.
