both-sides-now-108-show.jpg
Aired on Friday, August 4th.

On this edition of StudioTulsa, we learn about a new exhibition (which opens this evening, the 4th) at the 108 Contemporary Gallery in downtown Tulsa. "Both Sides Now: Joyce J. Scott & Sonya Clark" will be on view through September 24th. Scott is our guest on the program today. And the exhibit in which she's co-featured is thus described at the 108 website: "Through the use of glass, beadwork, and fiber, 2016 MacArthur Fellow Joyce J. Scott and Sonya Clark highlight, challenge, and uncover racial representation and injustice. This exhibition weaves together the voices of these two internationally acclaimed artists and conveys a path towards understanding."

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.
