Contemporary art and dance interact at the University of Tulsa
"Recently at the Alexandre Hogue Gallery was an exhibition by Cathy Breslaw, "Material Visions" a mixed media installation. During this exhibition the Advanced Dance Repertory Class came to the gallery and were so moved by the exhibition that each performer chose a piece of Cathy's work that inspired them and they choreographed their own portion of the dance as well as choreographing it together as a group dance. The group came to the gallery and performed their dance and we were lucky enough to have been able to film their performance. We would like to thank Cathy Breslaw for her beautiful art that inspired these young performers. We would also like to thank Professor Jessica Vokoun from the Theater Department for guiding these students in their journey of being inspired by art. We would like to thank the performers for their hard work, imagination, and creativity: Harley Dixon, Sara Drost, Maggie O'Gara, Lizzy Rainey, Jillian Schlecht, and John Yuan."

"I was so touched that my work inspired feelings in others, and to see this played out in the form of 'dance' is a blessing and a gift."
More of my work can be seen at my next exhibition 'Imaginings' which will be held at the beautiful contemporary art gallery Rose Gallery, on the campus of Francis Parker School, San Diego California. I am planning a large central installation called 'Dream Scape'.
The show opens with a reception on Thursday, April 2nd from 4:00 - 6:00 pm. The public is welcome and the show will be on view through May 7th.
