Art Exhibition & Mural Reveal Experience: Mural of Space & Time

TULSA, Okla. - Nov. 5, 2020 - PRLog -- In remembrance of the fourth anniversary of Leon Russell's passing, The Church Studio will host a celebration honoring the legacy of Grammy award-winning, Rock & Roll Hall of Famer, Leon Russell.  In 2019, The Church Studio Music Foundation commissioned eight Leon Russell inspired oil paintings, by internationally renowned artist, P. S. (Patrick) Gordon.  The Foundation enlisted muralist Brian Lewis to duplicate the paintings in a massive replica entitled Mural of Space & Time.   The name Mural of Space and Time is a nod to Russell's 70's moniker:  Master of Space and Time.

On November 13th, the 8 original pieces will be on display at the Harwelden Mansion, 2210 South Main Street from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.   Artist P. S. (Patrick) Gordon and Muralist Brian Lewis will meet guests.  Pianist Spencer Sutton will entertain performing Leon's music.

At 4 p.m. the breathtaking, 140-foot mural by North Carolina artist Brian Lewis will be unveiled at 304 South Trenton Avenue.  Lewis will recreate Gordon's eight botanical oil paintings on a grand scale on the building across from The Church Studio.  Lewis', also known as JEKS, spray-painted murals can be seen on the sides of buildings from Greensboro to Los Angeles.

"The beautiful mural will showcase the magnificent work of Pat (P.S.) Gordon while honoring the life and legacy of Leon Russell," said The Church Studio owner Teresa Knox. "The mural will be loved by locals and tourists for years to come, including those traveling on Route 66."

The Grace Methodist Episcopal Church at 3rd & Trenton was built in 1915 and was purchased and remodeled becoming a recording studio, home of Shelter Records, in 1972 by Leon Russell.  The stone structure served as a creative workshop for songwriters, musicians, engineers and singers to collaborate, learn and inspire.  Artists that recorded or spent time there with Leon include The Gap Band, Willie Nelson, Tom Petty, Eric Clapton, Bonnie Raitt, Kansas, Stevie Wonder, Freddie King, George Harrison, Bob Dylan and so many more.

In first quarter 2021, after a three-year restoration and rehabilitation, The Church Studio will once again become a recording studio, and contain a community space, audio engineering school, museum, entertainment network and be home to The Church Studio Archive, a 5,000-piece memorabilia collection.  The Church Studio is on the National Register of Historic Places.

Social Distancing and CDC guidelines will be followed.  Tickets are $50, tax deductible and strictly limited.  You can learn more about the event at:
