5x5x5 Art Show

The 5x5x5 Show

River Oaks' small art spectacle returns for 2021. The 6th Annual 5x5x5 features a remarkably fascinating showing of miniature works from artists across the U.S., coinciding with the gift giving season. Guest Juror for the 2021 feature is Haley Prestifilippo. River Oaks is inviting all visual artists to participate in this annual miniature feature . The 5x5x5 Show is an annual, signature exhibition allowing patrons to purchase unique, original works of art for holiday gift giving or as additions to their expanding collections.

Guest Juror -Haley Prestifilippo.


Haley Prestifilippo is a studio artist who focuses primarily on drawing. Haley’s detailed graphite works explore the symbiotic nature of creation and deterioration, and how this relationship underscores the intricacy of human experience. She is fascinated by the similar dichotomy found within the symbolic imagery of the vanitas, where vibrant beauty and the pall of mortality subtly inhabit the same aesthetic space. In her work, she draws upon the imagery of those still lives, recasting the familiar animals and natural elements into ambiguous narratives, offering a contemporary meditation on the complexity of existence.

Originally from Augusta, GA, she moved to Norman in 2011 and has since worked as an artist and educator. She has previously taught drawing in the OU School of Visual Arts, and has worked with the Firehouse Art Center in Norman for several years. Haley has been the recipient of numerous grants and awards through the Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition, of which she is a member and avid supporter. She has also been invited to participate in several events and shows with the Norman Arts Council, including Norman Open Studios in 2016. Haley enjoys being involved with various grassroots art groups in Norman and Oklahoma City, while also exhibiting her work regionally and nationally. As an artist, she strives to foster her students’ creative visions while providing them with a strong formal training in the traditional methods of drawing and sketching.
