Orchestra of New Spain presents Music for Portrait of Infanta Margarita in Blue Dress

While Diego Velázquez was painting secular subjects for the court, there were musical artists exploring the delights of what we now call secular music, and what in other cultures were called madrigals, chansons and carols (and not just for Christmas!) Tonos humanos of the late Renaissance allowed guitarists and poets of the early 17th c. the liberty of moving beyond traditional references to Mary and Christ in order to express earthly love in and for itself, just as Velazquez had left behind religious painting for courtly and aristocratic subjects. The music for this concert is for five players and singers, intimate music for amorous ends and entertainments: Eric Smith on cello; Gregory Hamilton on theorbo (bass) and guitar; Heidi Klein and Katrina Burggraf-Kledas, sopranos; and Nicolas Garza, male alto. Among the works on the program will be music from Tous les Matins du Monde of Marin Marais.

Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth Presents FRAMING DESIRE: Photography and Video

cropping, framing, and distorted views subtly deconstruct conventional notions of cityscapes, edging peripheral street scenes and grey, winter skies toward the sublime. Icelandic artist Ragnar Kjartansson's video/performance A Lot of Sorrow offers a different approach to Scapes. He arranged for the band The National to play their song "Sorrow" repeatedly and continuously on stage for six hours, creating a work that is repetitive over a long duration, but surprisingly expansive. While the mood of A Lot of Sorrow wanes and swells throughout the performance, the shadowy and atmospheric nocturnal scenes, along with the song, create a beautiful and austere scape to contemplate the emotion of sorrow and harness the artist's desire to work through personal and collective emotion (his, the band's, the crowd's, and the viewer's). Artists engaging in the theme of Scapes include Uta Barth, Bernd and Hilla Becher, Thomas Joshua Cooper, Ragnar Kjartansson, Rosemary Laing, Richard Misrach, Catherine Opie, Melanie Smith, and Frank Thiel.

In telling this important piece of our history, the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum is using baseball-related documents and artifacts from its archives as well as from other presidential libraries.

Presented at the White Rock Lake Museum, located inside the Bath House Cultural Center Dallas artist, Anna Palmer, has been visiting and photographing White Rock Lake for several years and has never ceased to be amazed at the diversity of life that exists in that place. Anna believes that the lake is a popular attraction and destination for a variety of reasons. The artist observes that many people visit the lake to escape the hustle and bustle of the city. The serene setting of the lake offers a tranquil refuge for those who seek a temporary respite from urban stress. Considered a peaceful haven in the middle of the city, White Rock Lake provides a placid atmosphere that appeals to a large number of visitors every day. But Anna points out that the lake also provides the public with a livelier side that comes from the rich ecosystem found in the area. She expresses that the undisturbed nature and untamed wildlife of the lake are as enticing and stimulating as the gentler side of the lake.

Valley House Gallery presents Vera Barnett: The Painted Word

In this body of work, Vera Barnett has turned to the written word—quotes, poetry, literature, sayings—for inspiration. From those words, Barnett derives poignant meaning through compositions she develops. Barnett creates the elements of the composition—by sewing and painting plastic, cardboard, and cloth to create figures and animals; by painting backdrops using cardboard and tape; and by assembling found objects. Once these elements are set up in her studio, Barnett paints her still life arrangement in a trompe l’oeil manner so real as to confound the viewer. Barnett says, “I am drawn to art that explores the emotional relationships between people, their environment and circumstances that they find themselves in. I wish to reconstruct these ideas through my own vision, my life and experiences.” Barnett studied at the prestigious Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia. This is her second solo exhibition at Valley House Gallery. Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches will present a solo exhibition of Barnett’s work in 2016.

Amphibian Stage Productions presents film of A Midsummer Night's Dream

Amphibian Stage Productions will show a film of the Theatre for a New Audience's production of A Midsummer Night's Dream by William Shakespeare. Of all Shakespeare's plays, A Midsummer Night's Dream is the most phantasmagorical, with fairies, spells and hallucinatory lovers. Julie Taymor turns out a production that's visually breathtaking, funny, sexy, and darkly poetic. With cinematography by Rodrigo Prieto (Argo, Frida) and music by Academy Award-winning composer Elliot Goldenthal, this immersive, inventive cinematic experience was filmed last autumn during Taymor's highly acclaimed inaugural stage production of A Midsummer Night's Dream. The feats of visual imagination are ingenious and plentiful, but beating at the centre of the film is an emotionally moving take on the deeper human aspects of this beloved tale.

Imagine shrimp that can break through glass, spider webs that are stronger than steel and sharks that use their snouts to sense the electrical impulses of their prey.

Explore how plants and animals stay in one piece despite the crushing forces of gravity, the pressure of water and wind, and the attacks of predators. Using surprising tactics, creatures endure the planet’s extreme temperatures, find food against fierce competition, and – without metal, motors or electricity – circulate their own life-sustaining fluids. Feel how hard a giraffe’s heart works to pump blood up to its head. Try to “fly” and study the many different ways creatures jump, gallop, slither and swim. And see technological breakthroughs – like Velcro, wind turbines and chainsaws – that were inspired by nature’s ingenuity.

Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth Presents FRAMING DESIRE: Photography and Video

cropping, framing, and distorted views subtly deconstruct conventional notions of cityscapes, edging peripheral street scenes and grey, winter skies toward the sublime. Icelandic artist Ragnar Kjartansson's video/performance A Lot of Sorrow offers a different approach to Scapes. He arranged for the band The National to play their song "Sorrow" repeatedly and continuously on stage for six hours, creating a work that is repetitive over a long duration, but surprisingly expansive. While the mood of A Lot of Sorrow wanes and swells throughout the performance, the shadowy and atmospheric nocturnal scenes, along with the song, create a beautiful and austere scape to contemplate the emotion of sorrow and harness the artist's desire to work through personal and collective emotion (his, the band's, the crowd's, and the viewer's). Artists engaging in the theme of Scapes include Uta Barth, Bernd and Hilla Becher, Thomas Joshua Cooper, Ragnar Kjartansson, Rosemary Laing, Richard Misrach, Catherine Opie, Melanie Smith, and Frank Thiel.

Baseball: America's Presidents, America's Pastime

Baseball: America’s Presidents, America’s Pastime showcases how baseball has mirrored trends in our larger society. At various points, the sport has personified America’s racial, economic, and national struggles. During good times and bad, presidents have connected with this uniquely American sport. Just as George W. Bush attended a World Series game after 9/11, Herbert Hoover attended the World Series in 1929 and 1931 to calm fears during the Great Depression. In telling this important piece of our history, the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum is using baseball-related documents and artifacts from its archives as well as from other presidential libraries. The exhibit also draws from the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown, New York, and other collections.

The serene setting of the lake offers a tranquil refuge for those who seek a temporary respite from urban stress. Considered a peaceful haven in the middle of the city, White Rock Lake provides a placid atmosphere that appeals to a large number of visitors every day. But Anna points out that the lake also provides the public with a livelier side that comes from the rich ecosystem found in the area. She expresses that the undisturbed nature and untamed wildlife of the lake are as enticing and stimulating as the gentler side of the lake.

Valley House Gallery presents Vera Barnett: The Painted Word

In this body of work, Vera Barnett has turned to the written word—quotes, poetry, literature, sayings—for inspiration. From those words, Barnett derives poignant meaning through compositions she develops. Barnett creates the elements of the composition—by sewing and painting plastic, cardboard, and cloth to create figures and animals; by painting backdrops using cardboard and tape; and by assembling found objects. Once these elements are set up in her studio, Barnett paints her still life arrangement in a trompe l’oeil manner so real as to confound the viewer. Barnett says, “I am drawn to art that explores the emotional relationships between people, their environment and circumstances that they find themselves in. I wish to reconstruct these ideas through my own vision, my life and experiences.” Barnett studied at the prestigious Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia. This is her second solo exhibition at Valley House Gallery. Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches will present a solo exhibition of Barnett’s work in 2016.

Imagine shrimp that can break through glass, spider webs that are stronger than steel and sharks that use their snouts to sense the electrical impulses of their prey. From the inside out, every living thing – including humans – is a machine built to survive, move and discover. Explore how plants and animals stay in one piece despite the crushing forces of gravity, the pressure of water and wind, and the attacks of predators. Using surprising tactics, creatures endure the planet’s extreme temperatures, find food against fierce competition, and – without metal, motors or electricity – circulate their own life-sustaining fluids. Feel how hard a giraffe’s heart works to pump blood up to its head. Try to “fly” and study the many different ways creatures jump, gallop, slither and swim. And see technological breakthroughs – like Velcro, wind turbines and chainsaws – that were inspired by nature’s ingenuity.

Many of these works have never been seen in the United States, including Sandro Botticelli’s Virgin Adoring the Sleeping Christ Child (c. 1490), which has not been exhibited outside of Scotland for more than 150 years. Other artists include the Renaissance masters Titian and Paolo Veronese; the 17th-century painters El Greco, Diego Velázquez, Sir Anthony van Dyck, Frans Hals, Jan Lievens, Rembrandt van Rijn and Johannes Vermeer; and such 19th-century figures as Camille Pissarro, Edgar Degas, Claude Monet, John Singer Sargent, Paul Gauguin and Paul Cézanne.

All of the actors in The Kountry Girls play at least one musical instrument and the story unfolds as much in song as it does in dialogue. Written by Ken Murchison, Andrew Clendenen and Sonny Franks, The Kountry Girls is a folk musical following the age-old custom of taking traditional folk songs and modifying the arrangements and lyrics. American Country Music evolved from rural folk songs where this art form was enjoyed in its most basic and spontaneous form. These humble roots are the spirit of The Kountry Girls. The timeless themes of economic hardship, enduring love, redemption and family struggles are the fabric of this sweet story told through adapted folk music.

Orchestra of New Spain presents Music for Portrait of Infanta Margarita in Blue Dress

While Diego Velázquez was painting secular subjects for the court, there were musical artists exploring the delights of what we now call secular music, and what in other cultures were called madrigals, chansons and carols (and not just for Christmas!) Tonos humanos of the late Renaissance allowed guitarists and poets of the early 17th c. the liberty of moving beyond traditional references to Mary and Christ in order to express earthly love in and for itself, just as Velazquez had left behind religious painting for courtly and aristocratic subjects. The music for this concert is for five players and singers, intimate music for amorous ends and entertainments: Eric Smith on cello; Gregory Hamilton on theorbo (bass) and guitar; Heidi Klein and Katrina Burggraf-Kledas, sopranos; and Nicolas Garza, male alto. Among the works on the program will be music from Tous les Matins du Monde of Marin Marais.
