Now on View: "Twists and Turns" at the 108 Contemporary Gallery in Downtown Tulsa

Sep 8, 2014

On today's show, we're discussing an interesting new exhibition that recently opened at the 108 Contemporary Gallery in Tulsa's Brady Arts District: "Twists and Turns" will be on display through October 26th. It's a craft exhibit of tapestries and ceramics that pairs -- for the first time ever -- two Israeli artists, Aleksandra Stoyanov and Zemer Peled, and it's actually the first "stop" in what will be a national tour for this show. Our guests today are Peled herself (shown here, with her work) and Jennifer Scanlan, an independent curator who's an expert on (and spokesperson for) the work of Stoyanov. Also on this installment of ST, commentator Barry Friedman offers a sobering if not unsettling or even frightening account -- it also happens to be quite well-written -- that occurs in the moments before a certain unnamed woman in our community undergoes an abortion.
