Widely Acclaimed Local Artist P.S. Gordon Has Two New Art Exhibits on View in Tulsa

Aired on Friday, April 1st.

On this edition of ST, we are pleased to speak once again with the artist P.S. Gordon (born in 1953 in Claremore, Oklahoma). Gordon is an artist mainly known for his rich, vividly precise watercolors of flowers -- and, per his website, he "gained national attention with a series of solo exhibitions, beginning in 1982, at the Fischbach Gallery in New York City, and Joseph Gierek Fine Art in his then-adopted hometown of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Since then, he has continually exhibited at numerous, prominent galleries around the country, been featured in notable museum shows and competitions, and his works can be found in important private, corporate, and museum collections throughout the United States." Gordon joins us to talk about two new shows that he has on view here in Tulsa, both of which will open this evening (Friday the 1st) as part of the First Friday Art Crawl in downtown Tulsa's Brady Arts District. "Recent Works: Patrick (P.S.) Gordon" will be shown at AHHA's Hardesty Arts Center through May 22nd, while "Mrs. Lennox and the Gift of Falling Snow" will be shown at the Living Arts of Tulsa space through April 28th. Also on our show, we remember the visionary and award-winning architect Zaha Hadid, who died recently at age 65; Hadid appeared on StudioTulsa back in 2003.

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.
