French Jewelry, Art Exhibits Vist Oklahoma City


Gilmore, Joan, THE JOURNAL RECORD


The exciting atmosphere of Paris will prevail in Oklahoma City next month. (Next month starts Friday. Are you ready?) French "jewelry for the eyes" will be on display Nov. 7 and French art will be featured starting Nov. 11.

The Cartier Jewelry Museum Collection, eye-glass frames of real gold and real gems, will be at Don and Dolly Wilson's Eyes Ltd., 7930 N. May Ave., on Nov. 7. These frames are created like real jewelry and truly are museum quality. The Wilsons offer similar frames, but less expensive, costing only around $1,200 or $1,300 each. Patrons ordering these luxury frames for their glasses consider themselves to be wearing eyewear jewelry, just as one would wear an expensive time piece as wrist jewelry.

An invitational reception _ with French champagne, of course _ is planned that evening from 6:30-8:30 p.m.

More than 400 French contemporary artists are participating in "French Art Now!," an international art exchange and benefit for the Mental Health Association in Oklahoma County. The exhibit will be Nov. 11-17 on the third-level mezzanine at 50 Penn Place. Many of the artworks will be for sale, with a portion of the proceeds going to the association's programs.

The artists, some of whom will be present for the show, are members of the Association pour la Promotion du Patrimoine Artistique Francais, an organization committed to promoting contemporary art, encouraging cross-cultural exchanges of art and identifying emerging talent. The show is organized by the group's international arm, the International Association for Contemporary Art.

"French Art Now!" comes to Oklahoma City after an October exhibition at the French Embassy in Washington, D.C., that involves both the Hirshorn and Corcoran Museums. From here, the show will travel to Osaka, Japan.

This exhibition is open to the public free of charge. . .

How many of you know _ or remember _ that the World Organization of China Painters is headquartered right here in Oklahoma City? The late Pauline Salyer organized the group some years back and settled the organization in a small building at 2641 NW 10th St. In the succeeding years, the headquarters has been like Topsy and just "growed." In addition to class rooms and offices, the building houses a museum of wonderful examples of hand-painted porcelain china. The museum's well worth a visit.

A good time to visit would be Saturday, Nov. 16. From 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

that day, the museum, a non-profit organization, is sponsoring an open house called China Painters Celebration. Open to the public free of charge, the open house will feature the museum's displays and a special group of hand-painted china items for sale.

Visitors from all over the world come to see the world headquarters of this organization. Y'all come, too. . .

Coming to Oklahoma City next week is one of the real heroes of Operation Desert Storm. Capt. Bruce McEwen, former commanding officer of the USS Tripoli (LPH 10) and a highly decorated Vietnam War veteran, has been invited here by the Naval Reserve Association as guest of honor for its annual Navy Birthday Dinner on Saturday, Nov. 9. Notable guests at the dinner will include Rear Adms. Lester Smith, Robert Smith III and Ray Ackerman.

Early in the morning of Feb. 18, the 18,000-ton amphibious assault ship Tripoli struck a submerged Iraqi mine, making a 20-foot-by-30-foot hole on the starboard side of the ship, approximately seven to 10 feet below water line. Under McEwen's direction and leadership, the crew rushed to the damaged area to isolate and shore the weakened hull. The Tripoli continued her mission of mine clearing for the battleships USS Missouri (BB 63) and the USS Wisconsin (BB 64) to allow naval gunfire support for the ground war.

Dr. Tamara Melia of the U.S. Navy Historical Center wrote to the Tripoli crew to tell them: "You are safe to say that (Tripoli) is the first U. …
