An exhibit inspired by the documentary “Earth Chronicles Project, The Artist’s Process: Oklahoma” is set to open at 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 14 at the Mabee-Gerrer Museum of Art.

The documentary premiered at the MGMoA in March 2012 and centers on diverse artists who share a passionate relationship to their cultures and the environment, according to a news release.

The film airs at 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 13 and 5 a.m. Friday, Sept. 14 on OETA, and includes 14 segments related to the meshing of art, environmental sustainability and cultural preservation in Oklahoma.

Artwork by the documentary producer, environmental artist and curator of the exhibition, Fran Hardy is among the pieces included in the exhibit. Her featured art was inspired by her travels around the state while filming the documentary.

Works by Oklahoma artists Katherine Liontas-Warren, Jack Bryan, Grace Grothaus, Kim Baker, Dr. Ian Thompson, Sue Folsom, and Jeri Redcorn are also included in the “Earth Chronicles Project, The Artist’s Process: Oklahoma” exhibit.
