The M.A. Doran Gallery, 3509 S. Peoria Ave., will host one opening reception from 5 to 8 p.m. Thursday for two shows by three artists.
One exhibit is a collaboration between two of Tulsa's best-known artists - wood artist Ron Fleming and painter Linda Stilley. Simply titled "A Collaboration," the show brings together some of Fleming's turned-wood creations that Stilley has augmented with various media, as well as individual works by both artists.
Also opening at the Doran gallery will be a show of new works by Wendy Matson, featuring the artist's unique approach to still-life paintings. Both shows continue through July 21.
Philip Geurin turns his memories as a counselor at a summer camp into the one-man show "Camp is Not Sexy," 7 p.m. Thursday in the PAC's Norman Theatre. Geurin's show - part stand-up, part cabaret - is about what happens when a teenage camp counselor discovers that life amongst 8-year-old unhappy campers isn't anything like the movies. Tickets are $5. 918-596-7111, tulsaworld.com/mytix
Congregation B'Nai Emunah's annual communal folk singing event, "Rise Up Singing," will focus primarily on the music of Oklahoma native son Woody Guthrie, honoring the Okemah native who was born 100 years ago.
This year's event - with local musicians leading the audience in folk songs of all sorts - will be Sunday at the synagogue, 1719 S. Owasso Ave. An optional dinner at 5:45 p.m. is $15; admission to the singing at 7 p.m., is free. 918-583-7121, tulsaworld.com/tulsagogue
