PASSAGES, A BIBLE STORY
Ancient manuscript experts from around the world are coming to Oklahoma to examine a massive collection of artifacts, items that are being gathered by an Oklahoma City businessman to tell the story of the Bible. The “Passages” exhibit at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art is made up of 300 pieces from a newly acquired collection of some very old works. It all started with Hobby Lobby President, Steve Green tried to buy one particular Bible from a Family in Turkey. Less than two years later The Green Collection has more than 40,000 ancient items of religious significance include portions of the Dead Sea Scroll, Torah Scrolls that survived the inquisition, ancient passages of Samuel found in a mummy’s wrappings written in Jesus’ home language within 2 generations of His lifetime. The second earliest text of the Gospel of John, First Edition King James Bibles, one of only 8 so called, “Wicked Bibles” in the world, and the writings and signatures of Martin Luther.

GREG BURNS “DRAWN IN DETAIL”
Detailed ink drawings provide the foundation for a Greg Burns painting and the power of the places he paints, from Meers Burger Stand to an expanse of African plain, gives his art a heart beat that resonates with those who see it. Burns is best known in Oklahoma for capturing landmarks around the state, the well known and the mundane, passed by every day rendered in near photographic still life. Technique and subject matter alone made Burns’ work a favorite for Oklahomans and others around the nation, but it is the story of the man himself that makes Greg Burns a favorite son and an inspiration.
Rocking Horse Dreams
Remember when you were kid and you got your first rocking horse? Remember climbing on and suddenly the walls and floors of your home melted away and you were in the wild west, a cowboy or cowgirl, galloping across the plain to whatever adventure awaited you? Rocking horses seem almost forgotten in this age of computers and video games, but one Oklahoma artist is keeping the day dream alive. Jackie Wilson grew up with a love for horses and a talent for wood work and as luck would have it, her inner child put those grown up skills to work. Today, Jackie carves rocking horses of every size…yes, even rocking horses large enough for grown ups to ride…if they want to…and if no one’s looking. Hop up in the saddle and hit the trail with Gallery as we travel to Edmond to meet Jackie Wilson, the keeper of “Rocking Horse Dreams”.

Oklahoma born artist Paul Medina has perfected the art of…mixing his art. With a focus on mixed media, Medina creates collages that explore the human condition, those things that make us more alike than different. He is an artist who sees the intangibles of his heart in each face he sees. His work has evolved over his 40 year career, keeping it fresh as he is constantly trying new materials, experimenting with new techniques and developing innovative ways to express how he feels at the moment. Gallery visits the studio of Paul Medina to looks into the intangible nature of art that keeps this artist...Always Reaching.
NATURAL BEAUTY: The Art of Floral Design
Flowers have been used for centuries as decoration, personal adornment, or for religious significance. Gallery visits some of the best floral designers in the state who show us how they create their masterpieces today. This show is for everyone who thinks arranging flowers is easy. Color, balance, texture, line and most of all, talent, are integral to a finished work that can touch the heart. American botanist Luther Burbank once said, “Flowers always make people better, happier and more helpful; they are sunshine, food and medicine to the soul.” Stop and smell the roses or the Calla Lilies or the Freesia or the Tulips with Gallery in April as we explore Natural Beauty, The Art of Floral Design.

LAEGER THAN LIFE
Her larger than life work graces parks, libraries, hospitals, churches, zoos, businesses and private homes across the country. They grace the Vatican in Rome, and a church in Russia. Rosalind Cook is a noted sculptress with a flair for turning hard bronze into fluid movement and carefully molded faces into soft expressions of joy and peace. The Tulsa artist uses her gift to celebrate the best of the human spirit and whether you know it or not, if you live in Oklahoma, you’ve likely been touched by her work. Cook allowed Gallery cameras into her studio to show us how she creates her giant sculptures and to share her unique perspective on the human condition. You won't believe her Art!
Inspired by comic books, Oklahoma artist Dustin Oswald breathes a new philosophy into his original works. Making a full time go of it, Oswald’s company, Bombs Away Art is rooted in punk rock and a Do It Yourself attitude. The soil that nurtures those roots…a belief in the sacrament and respect of living beings and of humanity. In May, Gallery takes viewers into the heart of one man’s interpretation of violence against nature and self, his view on the fragility of life and his philosophy that we should all engage in every moment that is given to us.

Oklahoma, Music & the Mary Rose She was the flagship of a new warring naval fleet commissioned by King Henry VIII. The Mary Rose, the first ship built that was able to fire broadside, set sail to protect England in 1512. After serving 33 years in several wars against France, Scotland and Brittany she saw her last action on July 19, 1545. While leading an attack on the galleys of a French invasion fleet, The Mary Rose sank, but after four centuries of resting at the bottom of the ocean, on October 11, 1982, she was recovered and returned to her home port. Thirty years later, far across the sea, two American musicians in Oklahoma pay homage to The Mary Rose with a complete symphony to tell her story. The music so captivated the British who worked for decades to reclaim and restore the lost vessel that they took their own voyage across the sea just to hear The Song of The Mary Rose.
