    Hello Anke,
    I found your work and contact information through the Tulsa Artist Guild website. I’m interested in talking with you about showing your work here at Phillips Seminary. We’d like to have a rotating exhibit of local artist’s work.

    Let me know if you’d be interested in showing here. We have a lovely space (and an amazing library).

    Thank you,
    Adam Miller
    Phillips Seminary
