"Core Connections: The University of Tulsa Student and Alumni Ceramics Exhibition" at Living Arts

Aired on Tuesday, January 12th.

On this edition of our show, a discussion with Whitney Forsyth, an Associate Professor at the University of Tulsa School of Art. Prof. Forsyth heads up the Ceramics program here at TU, and she's also the curator of a terrific art show on view at the Living Arts of Tulsa gallery called "Core Connections: The University of Tulsa Student and Alumni Ceramics Exhibition, 1999-2016." It's on display through January 28th. For this wide-ranging exhibit, she selected work by her current and former students, all of whom have taken ceramic classes at the University over the past 17 years. As Prof. Forsyth notes of this show at the Living Arts website: "Many levels of work will be exhibited.... Many amazing artists have passed through the TU ceramic studio over the past 17 years. Ceramic studios are special places where meaningful personal and artistic connections are made. I feel very privileged to be part of such an amazing group of artists." The artists with pieces on display in "Core Connections" include Cindy Williams, Cynthia Harris, Joe Blair, Kamal Zeidan, Vanessa Somerville, Ian Coward, Clayton Keyes, Kristen Abramson, Mike Teal, Prof. Forsyth herself, Lee Schultz, Blake Walinder, Jessica Walker, and many more.
