Texas-Based Artist Offers "Emblems from the Margin" at TU's Hogue Gallery

On this edition of ST, we speak with James Pace, an Oklahoma-born, Texas-based artist who has an exhibit on view at the University of Tulsa's Alexandre Hogue Gallery through September 20th. The show is called "Emblems from the Margin" --- and it includes mixed-media pieces as well as prints depicting various icons and recurring images. A professor of Visual Art at the University of Texas at Tyler since 1985, Pace is an artist who seems to emphasize symbolism, tactility, the American wilderness, and the narrative process itself in his work. He's been exhibiting artworks nationally and internationally since 1976. Pace will deliver a free-to-the-public "artist's lecture" tomorrow, Thursday the 30th, in the Jerri Jones Lecture Hall (in Phillips Hall; on the TU campus) at 4pm. After this lecture, you can meet the artist at the opening reception for "Emblems from the Margin," which runs from 5pm till 7pm in the Hogue Gallery. (For more information on this exhibit, and on these exhibit-related activities, please call 918-631-2739.) Also on today's show, our commentator Connie Cronley tells us why one of the best books she read over the summer was about --- of all things --- the Statue of Liberty.

Rich Fisher passed through KWGS about thirty years ago, and just never left. Today, he is the general manager of Public Radio Tulsa, and the host of KWGS’s public affairs program, StudioTulsa, which celebrated its twentieth anniversary in August 2012 . As host of StudioTulsa, Rich has conducted roughly four thousand long-form interviews with local, national, and international figures in the arts, humanities, sciences, and government. Very few interviews have gone smoothly. Despite this, he has been honored for his work by several organizations including the Governor's Arts Award for Media by the State Arts Council, a Harwelden Award from the Arts & Humanities Council of Tulsa, and was named one of the “99 Great Things About Oklahoma” in 2000 by Oklahoma Today magazine.
