Jun 29, 2021

On this edition of ST, we learn about a soon-to-open exhibition at 108 Contemporary Gallery in downtown Tulsa; "A Luthier's Tale: The Craft of Stringed Instruments" will be on view from July 2nd through September 19th. Our guest is Benjamin Liggett, a luthier (i.e., a maker of stringed instruments) based here in Tulsa who's also the guest curator for this show. Per the 108 Contemporary website, this exhibit is "dedicated to the art, craft, and design of stringed instruments. Following his training at the Roberto-Venn School of Luthiery in Phoenix, Arizona, Liggett became a full-time luthier at Bishline Banjos. Liggett conveys his passion for creating instruments in this exhibition, which is a survey of stringed instruments from a variety of luthiers that represent the culture and craftsmanship of our region. With a documentary of the making process, a wide range of educational programs, and a multitude of performances, this show shines a light on this incredible craft."
