Don Thompson photography exhibition: "Flora in black and white"

Artist Don Thompson in his own words: "To me photographing flowers in black and white provides the most sensual and elegant representation of flowers. It reveals the delicate geometric texturing and shapes of flowers. The eye is drawn to the dramatic balancing of light and shadow. Photographing flowers in black and white in its simplistic form gives me an opportunity to intimately explore deeply the beauty that nature continuously provides us."

I meet with the Association of Fundraising Professionals every month at OSU-Tulsa. The room we use has the most captivating permanent exhibition of Don Thompson's photographs, "Black Settlers in Tulsa." Every month, they preoccupy at least the first ten minutes after I arrive and before I leave. Before I can shake a hand or say hello, my eyes become fixed on his work. They are simple portraits lining the walls, emanating the personalities of fellow Tulsans. They are beautiful. What a joy to meet with them on a regular basis. And so, let me recommend that you put his upcoming show on your calendars.
