Getting to Know the Work of Lindsay Ketterer Gates, a Gifted Fiber Artist Now Showing in Tulsa

Aired on Thursday, June 4th.

On this edition of ST, we speak with Lindsay Ketterer Gates, a Pennsylvania-based fiber artist who creates, as noted at her website, "slightly obsessive mixed-media work [that] springs from a background in and love of fiber techniques combined with a curiosity for all things purchased in bulk. Random industrial materials are combined with tedious hand-manipulated wire looping to mimic, or simply give a nod to, beloved textile accents, patterns, and details." Gates is participating in a two-person show that will open tomorrow at the 108 Contemporary Gallery in the Brady Arts District, in downtown Tulsa; "Overlap: Lindsay Ketterer Gates and Amanda Bradway" will be on view from June 5th through July 26th. Gates tells us about this gorgeous exhibition, and also about the upcoming "FiberWorks 2015" show, which is a juried exhibit organized by Fiber Artists of Oklahoma that likewise opens tomorrow (Friday the 5th). Gates is the Juror for this year's "FiberWorks" show, which we be on view at Living Arts of Tulsa. More about the 108 Contemporary show can be found here, and more about the Livings Arts of Tulsa juried exhibition is at this link.

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.
