Update:  Statement from the University of Tulsa School of Art, Design, and Art History

The gallery is open to TU Students, Faculty, and Staff Only and is Not Open to the Public.

While we are not open to the public, please join us Thursdays in September at the University of Tulsa School of Art, Design, and Art History Facebook and Instagram pages for special virtual programs and highlights.  

Our guest is Sarah Ahmad, a visual artist who received her MFA from the Memphis College of Art, her MA in Education from Union University in Jackson, Tennessee, and her BA in Fine Arts from the National College of Arts in Lahore, Pakistan. Now based here in our community, Ahmad is a Tulsa Artist Fellow. Her newest exhibit, which she tells us about on StudioTulsa, is now on view at the Hogue Gallery on the TU campus. It's called "Cosmic Veils." As Ahmad notes of this striking show on her own website: "A site-specific installation inspired by the Western Veil of the Veil Nebula -- a glowing haze comprising remnants of the violent death of a star twenty times larger than the sun -- Cosmic Veils invites us to consider that the aftermath of the massive destruction can offer something beautiful and unique.... Cosmic Veils seeks to recreate an otherworldly space, one where time stands still and the viewer is bathed in patterns of light and immersed in rhythms of creation."

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.
