Tulsa Architecture - Art Deco captured in paintings, brick by brick

A Tulsa artist and blogger you must meet is Celeste Vaught. She is painting highlights of the heritage of Tulsa Architecture, and you can follow her work on her blog, Tulsa, Brick x Brick. Tulsa Architecture: Downtown Tulsa's Atlas Life Building

A short drive through downtown Tulsa will quickly explain her fascination with the art deco architecture - and Celeste is doing an amazing job of capturing the beauty of the elegant buildings for which many of us share fond memories.

Buildings she has painted thus far include:

  1. Atlas Life Sign
  2. Claud's Hamburgers
  3. Phoenix Cleaners
  4. Fairgrounds Pavilion
  5. Guaranty Laundry Building (Page Moving and Storage)
  6. Boulder on the Park
  7. Bill White Chevrolet (4th and Elgin)
  8. 320 South Boston Building
  9. Philtower Entrance
  10. Tulsa Monument Company Building (Benchmark Monument Company)
  11. Will Rogers High School
  12. The Brook
  13. City Veterinary Hospital
  14. Warehouse Market Building

Celeste came up with an idea to further enhance the interest of the "Tulsa Brick x Brick" series by inviting others to share their memories and experiences involving Tulsa places. If you're fond of a particular building or place in Tulsa, have a story to share or just want to say what the building/place means to you and why you like it, drop by Celeste’s blog and write a note. Tulsa Architecture: The Brook

My favorite painting by far is the one of the Atlas Life Building, which is where I worked in the early 1980s after college graduation. I am trying to decide if I should share the story of sneaking to the building’s rooftop where my boyfriend and I would spend romantic moments while viewing the downtown lights. It was a special and magical place.

New pieces from Celeste Vaught's "Tulsa Brick x Brick" series are on display at Pearl Gallery at 1201 East 3rd Street, Tulsa, Oklahoma and can be seen Tuesday through Friday 11-5, Thursdays til 7 and other times by appointment.

For those of you who love Tulsa architecture and our historical buildings in downtown and midtown Tulsa, do visit Celeste’s blog to see her awesome paintings. Oh, and I’ve included her painting of the Brook on Peoria Avenue - aren’t the colors brilliant?
