Over the years, I’ve had the honor of exhibiting at a variety of progressive, non-profit galleries and arts centers nationwide, yet my experience at Hardesty Arts Center in Tulsa, OK was truly exceptional. The Hardesty, which houses the Arts & Humanities Council of Tulsa, is a remarkable facility that blends galleries with studios that exceed facilities at many universities, plus thriving educational outreach and artist-in-residence programs.

What impressed me most about the Hardesty was the interdisciplinary engagement amongst the arts, modeled by the collaboration between Arrangement for a Silent Orchestra and the Tulsa Symphony Orchestra, with a quartet from TSO playing throughout the opening reception, and performing the orchestral accompaniment for my solo performance of Beethoven’s Romance for Violin. The Hardesty genuinely supported the full scope of the project, thanks to an outstanding staff and the generous support of local contributors to the arts.
