---The Sculptures of Rosalind Cook
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.

ON POINTE IN OKC
The opportunity to do a show about the Oklahoma City Ballet was an unexpected surprise. I met the company’s executive director, John Krasno, while covering the Worldwide Creativity Forum in downtown Oklahoma City. When John told me what he did I shared with him the fact that Gallery had always wanted to get behind the scenes at the Oklahoma City Ballet for it’s viewers. John, relatively new leadership at the ballet, immediately gave us a green light.
For a span of two months we had access to the company’s leaders, rehearsals, dancers, even getting to talk with them in their dressing rooms prior to performances at the Civic Center Auditorium. Our cameras were even allowed backstage during one of the company’s most popular productions, “The Nutcracker”. We ended up with some of the most beautiful High Definition footage we’ve ever shot for a Gallery program and we can’t wait to share it with all of you. This is going to be one of my favorite shows. Join us February 10th at 7:30pm for a front row seat to find out what it takes to stay “On Pointe in OKC”.
