|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 begins 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. Then moving to my response to the Vietnam war. Then my inspiration for the Andrew Wyeth series. Then leading to my own art style as what I do now. My private collection of work is a reflection of my commitment to art,” Lorenzo said.|
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.
