Eleanor Spiess-Ferris:

The Lady Is Not for Burning


The exhibit is a cultural event and historical survey by the Chicago Blues Museum that traces the Chicago Music scene of the 1950s through 1970s, its ties to Detroit’s Motown Records and the company’s early beginnings in Chicago’s Bronzeville neighborhood and Gary’s Vee-Jay Records.

Rare photographic images focusing on homegrown Chicago musicians, entertainers and performers are featured as well as music, movie footage, artifacts and memorabilia.

Outstanding Midwest Artist Series

Eleanor Spiess-Ferris: The Lady Is Not for Burning South Shore Arts is pleased to present the sixth in its Outstanding Midwest Artist Series, Eleanor Spiess-Ferris: The Lady Is Not for Burning. Trees, birds, poisonous plants, mythological symbols, the female form, and, especially, water gather to make up a symbolic stew of expressive elements in Spiess- Ferris work. The artist states, “My work reflects a deep involvement with my native New Mexico—not as much visually as spiritually. My childhood was a melting pot of surreal attitudes surrounded by such diversities as the Spanish Penitentes, early Catholic retablos, and American Indian artifacts. All were woven among family tales and myths. My ancestors were among the first Spanish settlers of Northern New Mexico. “I spent most of my time as a child in a wild apple/plum orchard that grew on our small farm. It was there that I discovered an imaginary world beyond the real. “I enjoy juxtaposing the frightening with the beautiful, the comic with the tragic, the real with the unreal.

“My adult self, my schooled self, my Chicago self have embraced such western artists as Hieronymus Bosch, James Ensor, Paul Delvaux and, certainly not least, the Mexican masters as well. These two worlds have informed my art and given voice to my vision.” In a February, 2009 exhibit catalogue essay by James Yood, the critic notes, “You can’t teach imagination, and for an artist such as Eleanor Spiess-Ferris that stunning ability to leap from here and now toward what and if is a central strength, the platform from which all else exudes. That’s the overwhelming impressions you receive in an encounter with the work of Spiess-Ferris, the shift we undergo from our world to her world, the immersion into some parallel universe when nature, animals, and humans all exist, just as we think we know them, but now functioning as integers in surprising and evocative narratives of mystery and wonder, subjected to her changeling fantasy and transformative reconsideration. From small suggestive and ambiguous playlets to larger charged and complex psychodramas, Spiess-Ferris transports us to her imaginative realm where issues of the greatest importance play themselves out, where her ruminations on all the possibilities within the human comedy find a kind of poignant pictorial voice. She’s a purveyor of vision, and leads us on a merry chase after, well, ourselves.” Spiess-Ferris has been featured in numerous solo exhibits over the past four decades, most recently at Printworks and Packer Schopf galleries in Chicago, the Hyde Park Art Center and Benedictine College. She has participated in group shows at the Illinois State Museum, Prairie State College, the Indianapolis Art Center, the Johnson Art Gallery at Carthage College, Kenosha, Wisconsin, and numerous institutions throughout the Midwest and beyond. Her work is included in the collections of the Block Museum at Northwestern University, Elmhurst College, the DePaul Art Museum and the James R. Thompson Center in Chicago, and the Illinois State Museum in Springfield. With work dating from the 1970s to the present, Eleanor Spiess-Ferris: The Lady Is Not for Burning will run February 12 through April 12, 2017, with a reception for the artist on Sunday, March 12, from 1-3pm.

Symphony Kicks Off 75th Anniversary Season! The Northwest Indiana Symphony Orchestra opened its 75th Anniversary Season on Friday, September 30, with “Celebrate 75,” an Opening Concert and Gala at the Radisson Hotel and Star Plaza Theatre. Special thanks to Melissa Neff and Dr. Michael Luongo, Co-Chairs of the Symphony’s 75th Anniversary Committee. Over 350 guests enjoyed dinner, drinks and a silent auction at the pre-concert Gala, then joined concertgoers at the theatre. The evening showcased the talents of Symphony musicians under the direction of Maestro Kirk Muspratt with a program featuring fan favorites from stage, screen and radio from throughout the Symphony’s 75-year history.

The concert opened with The Star-Spangled Banner, as did the Symphony’s very first concert at Seaman Hall in Gary on Pearl Harbor Day, December 7, 1941. Concert Master Michele Lekas wowed the crowd with The Theme from II Postino. Indiana University Northwest was once again the evening’s Presenting Sponsor. The auction and raffle were highlighted by a private wine room dinner for eight at Gamba Ristorante, “on the glass” Blackhawks seats and a $500 cash prize. Sue and Andy Arnold capped off the evening’s festivities by hosting the post-concert dessert and champagne reception for Gala attendees, orchestra members, guest artists and Maestro Muspratt. The Gala raises money every year to benefit the music and education programs of the Symphony, Youth Orchestra and Symphony Chorus. Special thanks to the entire 75th Anniversary Committee, Symphony and South Shore Arts boards, the Women’s Association and the Symphony and South Shore Arts staff for a wonderful evening and a great start to the season!

A Tribute to Our Symphony Musicians! The Northwest Indiana Symphony Orchestra held its first concert in Gary, Indiana, on December 7, 1941. In September of that year, Arthur Zack, a cello teacher from Chicago, had relocated to Gary in order to organize an orchestra. The first concert was scheduled for 8:30pm, on the evening of what we now call Pearl Harbor Day, at Seaman Hall, a theatre that was part of City Methodist Church at Washington Street and 6th Avenue. Word of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor was received just before the concert started, and this influenced Zack to begin with The Star-Spangled Banner for an audience recovering from the day’s events. According to cellist Violet Hayes Wray, “It was the most emotional rendition of the national anthem in which I had ever taken part.” Fortunately, the concert was very successful and proved that Gary and its surrounding communities could support a civic orchestra. Jennie Gaudio (Wilkinson) was concert mistress. The program included the Corelli Christmas Concerto Grosso, a symphony by Haydn, an overture by Boieldieu, Strauss’ Emperor Waltzes and Three Dances from Smetana’s The Bartered Bride. The Symphony’s beginnings were humble—somewhat “grassroots”—with the orchestra comprised of high school students and adults from many walks of life, including a dentist, a funeral director, a printer, college professors, teachers, secretaries and homemakers. In the 1960s, they rehearsed every Tuesday evening for two hours at Indiana University Northwest.

For the past several decades, the Symphony has been graced by the talents of professional musicians who make a living by playing, not only with the Northwest Indiana Symphony, but many other orchestras and ensembles throughout the greater Chicago metropolitan area and beyond, including the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Lyric Opera, the Chicago Sinfonietta, the South Bend Symphony, the Elgin Symphony, the Lake Forest Symphony, the Southwest Michigan Symphony, and the Illinois Philharmonic Orchestra. They serve on the faculty of prestigious music programs such as Northwestern University, Valparaiso University, VanderCook College of Music, and Saint Xavier University. Over the past 75 years, our Symphony musicians have performed under the direction of many celebrated conductors, beginning, of course, with Arthur Zack, in 1941, followed by Rudolph Reiners, Irwin Fischer, Désiré Defauw (the former Music Director and Conductor of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra), Leo Krakow, Tibor Kozma, Robert Vodnoy and Maestro Kirk Muspratt. Many well-known musicians and entertainers have performed with the Orchestra, including Benny Goodman, Van Cliburn, André Watts, Gary native James McCracken, Dizzy Gillespie, Itzhak Perlman, Rudolph Nureyev, Marvin Hamlisch, Boston Pops conductor Arthur Fiedler, Rachel Barton Pine, Shirley Jones and others. As we celebrate 75 years of live symphonic musical performances in this special season, it is time to say thank you to the talented musicians who bring the music to life!
