Shout Out to Okla­homa award-win­ning artist Frank Loren­zo who had a selec­tion of his art col­lec­tion on dis­play at the Price Tow­er Arts Cen­ter in Bartlesville. The show, ele­gant­ly labeled ‘A ret­ro­spec­tive of a Life Inspired,’ show­cas­es sev­er­al of Lorenzo’s paint­ings and sculp­tures from through­out his career. 

In addi­tion, these pieces were also avail­able for pur­chase. The show is part of the Arkansas Ter­ri­to­ry Col­lec­tion, which was com­prised of 80 works of art by artists from nine states. Each piece rep­re­sent­ed a point in time dur­ing the his­to­ry of the Arkansas Ter­ri­to­ry that cov­ered a vast his­to­ry of two cen­turies. For Loren­zo, though, it was about much more than just a peri­od of his­to­ry; it was about life.“The show at Price Tow­er cov­ers the life sto­ry of my art. 

It began in 1956 with win­ning an art home course and the start of my art car­ri­er. Then moves to my stud­ies and inspi­ra­tion of Picas­so and a series of art. I was then mov­ing to my response to the Viet­nam war. Then my inspi­ra­tion for the Andrew Wyeth series. I was then lead­ing to my art style as what I do now. My pri­vate col­lec­tion of work is a reflec­tion of my com­mit­ment to art,” Loren­zo said.

Frank Lorenzo’s art was dis­played at the Arts Cen­ter through Jan­u­ary 3, and admis­sion to the gallery is free. The gallery is open Mon­day-Sun­day from 10 am‑8 pm and is locat­ed at 510 Dewey Avenue in Bartlesville.

Unique Quote

Be free of expectation in heart and mind. Have faith in what is possible and confidence in that faith which makes all things possible. Life’s value is not a measure of met or unrealized expectations, but a review of how yesterday’s faith brought about today’s opportunity to believe less in what we expect and further into the miracle of new possibilities. - C.L.
