Opens Friday, Sept. 5
When Tulsa gallery 108 Contemporary opened its doors in the Brady Arts District in the fall of 2012, spectators to the months of construction on the old Mathews Warehouse and several other properties surrounding wondered what the finished products would have to offer. Today, we have the Guthrie Green, the Woody Guthrie Center, the Hardesty Arts Center, the Zarrow Center for Art and Education and the gallery that has brought one fascinating exhibit after another to this arena of creativity. Formerly the Brady Craft Alliance, 108 Contemporary continues that cycle of provocative works with the world premiere exhibition Twists and Turns, a joint show of works by Israeli artists Aleksandra Stoyanov and Zemer Peled. Stoyanov weaves in the complex life of Israel, creating striking and contemplative tapestries. Peled’s figure-like ceramics invite hours of study and focus to decipher not only its process but its intention. Twists and Turns, which opens Sept 5. at 108 E. Brady St. in Tulsa, is sponsored in part by the Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation. After it closes on Oct. 26, the show will go on tour nationally.
