Aired Thursday, December 5, 2019

On this edition of StudioTulsa, we speak with two Tulsa art icons, painter P.S. "Pat" Gordon, and ceramic artist, curator, and arts advocate Steve Liggett. These two artists have been fixtures in the visual arts community for over forty years, and describe their shared history. The two are now collaborating on a project of ceramic objects featuring Gordon's trademark floral botanic designs on Liggett's pottery. "Botanica-Patrick (P.S.) Gordon and Steve Liggett, A Collaboration" is currently on display through December 21st at the Liggett Studio at 314 S Kenosha Ave. in downtown Tulsa. 

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.
