Movement Within. Oklahoma painter Kristal Tomshany is inspired by the constant movement of life, right down to the very atoms, in her exhibition Form in Flux at the Tulsa Artists Coalition Gallery, 9 E. Brady St. "I have always believed inanimate objects to have their own 'aliveness' on an unseen level," Tomshany said. "Everything we perceive then, is in constant flux." Having grown up in the high plains of the panhandle, Tomshany tries to mimic the broad expanses and wind swept surroundings of where she grew up. Exhibition continues through Jan. 30. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Friday 11 am-2pm and Thursday-Saturday 6-9pm. For more information visit HYPERLINK "http://www.tacgallery.org"; www.tacgallery.org or call 592-0041.
A Day in the Life. Colin Firth stars in A Single Man, a Tom Ford directed period piece set in 1960s Los Angeles premiering on the 15th at the Circle Cinema, 12 S. Lewis. The film takes place over one day in the life of George Falconer (Firth), gay middle-aged British professor who is floating through life in a search for meaning after the death of his longtime partner Jim. The film was not even slated for a wide run of the United States, however very warm receptions at the International Venice Film Festival and a Golden Globe nod for Firth for Best Actor changed that. Tickets are $8.25 for adults, $7 for students and seniors. For more information visit HYPERLINK "http://www.circlecinema.com"; www.circlecinema.com or call 592-3456 for showtimes.

The Dream Lives On. Every year, Americans gather together in remembrance of famous Civil Rights advocate and leader, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. That sentiment does not change along the Oklahoma border line. Every year, the Martin Luther King Parade takes place along Pine Street and Greenwood Avenue. Groups and individuals alike walk the parade route to honor the man who had a dream and inspired us to band together and not drift apart. A candlelight commemoration and interfaith service take place in his honor the day before. Following the parade, there will be awards given out at Oklahoma State University-Tulsa's Main Hall, 700 N. Greenwood. The parade begins at 10am. For more information on the parade or to participate, contact HYPERLINK "mailto:Debby@okeq.org" Debby@okeq.org.
Statuary for Succor. For more than 13 years artist Whitney Forsyth and her husband have traveled to Romania to volunteer at orphanages in need. Her sculpture installation Mixed Blessings at Living Arts Gallery, 307 E. Brady St., hopes to bring to light the plight of orphans in Romania as they are forgotten or ignored by their government. "As I have watched my life change through travel to Romania, my art work has also changed," Forsyth said in her biography. "My hope is that "Mixed Blessings" will be another attempt to speak about the turmoil surrounding the child welfare system in Romania today." The exhibit runs through Jan. 28. Gallery hours are Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday 1-5pm and Thursday and Friday 1-9pm. For more information visit HYPERLINK "http://www.livingarts.org"; www.livingarts.org.
