Modern Masterpieces and Masterful Deception Cross Paths in "The Art Forger" (Encore presentation.)

Aired on Tuesday, March 12th.

(Please note: This program originally aired last year.) On this edition of our show, we speak by phone with the author and writing instructor B. A. Shapiro about her widely praised novel, "The Art Forger." In 1990, more than a dozen works of art (today worth, in sum, $500+ million) were stolen from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston. It remains the largest unsolved art heist in history, but in this equally fascinating and entertaining novel, our heroine --- Claire Roth, a struggling young artist --- learns more about this theft than she ever bargained for.

For Artist James Grashow, Anything Goes (Including Cardboard Sculptures, Woodcuts, LP Covers, Etc.)

Aired on Wednesday, January 23rd.

On this edition of StudioTulsa, we speak with the veteran artist James Grashow, born in Brooklyn in 1942, who's been creating an appealing, wide-ranging body of work since the 1960s. From large-scale environmental installations to album covers for Deep Purple and Jethro Tull to miniature "houseplants" (in which homes and buildings replace flowers and buds in intricately constructed bouquets), Grashow creates works that somehow thrive on both whimsy and decay, both wonder and mortality.
