PUBLISHER’S LETTER

As

a child, my father would take our family to Northpark Mall and I still remember being amazed at the giant, modern, moving sculptures that were just outside of Neiman Marcus. Towering over us, they hammered away in the air while shoppers dashed about their business. “True prosperity is impossible without a thriving arts community.” This is what I heard my father’s friend, Ray Nasher, say when addressing a roomful of some of the most powerful businessmen in Dallas. I found it profound that Ray, who founded Northpark Mall - at the time the world’s largest indoor climate controlled building, was a champion for improving the culture of his home community. Not satisfied with the lifestyle his success afforded him, Ray and his wife Patsy amassed an enormous modern sculpture collection and led the charge to transform the arts district in downtown Dallas. Art is at the core of what makes us human. We all have an inherent sense of balance, harmony and rhythm. We express and appreciate this instinct with the Performing, Visual, Applied & Epicurean arts. Although birds do sing, you will never find an animal writing a song, creating a sculpture, decorating a house or cooking a meal! Southlake and "the bubble" around it have experienced extraordinary growth in the past 20 years. Having gone to Carroll High School, I can still remember when 1709 was two lanes, Norah Jones was singing in the FUMC Grapevine choir and Town Square was just a pasture with cattle where we’d run and jump over the hay stacks. Southlake has grown and it is time now to take action to improve the artistic culture within our bubble. Southlake Arts is an effort to give a platform to our truly gifted students, teachers, professionals and amateurs living within and just outside of our city limits. While rounding up the arts community, I have had the good pleasure of personally meeting so many of these talented people within our community, and the experience has been overwhelming. Our mission is quite simple: to educate, entertain and inspire you with beautiful images and interesting stories on the arts from each of their unique fields. As you read and become more aware of the talent and beauty in our city, you will become more involved. As you become more involved, our city will transform into something even more incredible than it already is!

H

ow many of us bought tiny speakers to channel Eine Kleine Nachtmusik directly to the womb, spent hundreds of dollars on Baby Mozart videos and interactive toys, and spent hours shaking the parachute at toddler music classes?

We are all familiar with the stats on the benefits of classical music and stress levels: • Listening to classical music has been found to help reduce pain and anxiety during medical procedures, resulting in lower spikes in diastolic blood pressure and less pain reported. (Duke Cancer Institute) • Systolic blood pressure was lower in study participants who listened to classical music as compared to those who were assigned other types of music or none at all. (University of San Diego) • Russian scientists found children who were exposed to classical music in a passive listening environment showed frequency changes in their brainwaves, indicating greater relaxation. and the evidence of the connection between music and academic performance: • Preschoolers who received piano training performed 34% better on test measuring spatial-temporal ability than those who did not. (Neurological Research, February 1997) • Students who studied music scored significantly higher on both verbal and math sections of the SAT than students who did not. • 66% of music majors applying to medical school were admitted, the highest acceptance rate of any group

story by Barbara Milhizer We bought wholeheartedly into the evidence of the benefits of classical music for our babies, but we seem to have left it at the Kindergarten door. What’s Plano got that Southlake doesn’t? An orchestra program. So does Arlington, Allen, Hurst-Euless-Bedford, Flower Mound, Frisco, McKinney, Highland Park, Rockwall, so on and so forth. Heck, you’ve probably seen the YouTube video with the Bolivian children’s orchestra playing instruments fashioned from trash scavenged at their local landfill. I agree; we have a stellar, award-winning marching band. But what happens to the violinist, or the bassoonist, the kid who prefers Stravinsky to Sousa, or the one who can’t pull off the plumed hat look? Southlake has a lot to offer and is sought out as the premier community for relocating families. But those transferring from school districts with orchestra programs express disappointment in the availability of such programming in Southlake. Hannah Xu, a 7th grader at Dawson Middle School, drives to Fort Worth to play cello with the Fort Worth Youth Symphony. According to her mother Kathy, the quality of a fine arts education reflects the quality of the district: “It’s like a cake without the icing.” Not having an orchestra is a southlake ARTS

education that meets the students where they are, creates lifelong learners and responsible, global citizens. And a critical piece is missing.

When did we decide that the benefits no longer applied, or were they just not worth it in terms of financial priorities?

PURSE STRINGS FOR STRINGS

I know what you’re thinking: Do we really need another activity — especially one that is certainly enriching but probably won’t land my kid at Carnegie Hall? (Because that would look really good on the college application.) I think of the activities that my children participate in, and many of them are geared for young bodies with boundless energy and original knee parts. Besides being a cognitive workout, playing music is a life skill, one that will serve them for the rest of their lives.

I really think we can do better. Yes, it’s about money. It’s always about money. But it’s one of the best investments that we can make in terms of resources and time and the return on that investment.

So how do we get this done? The same way everything gets done in this community, by mobilizing its results-oriented, A-type citizenry to raise the money to hire orchestra directors and purchase sets of instruments. We could call it Checks for Cellos. Let’s harness the creative problem solving that brought us things like lacrosse practice fields, Town Square, and Bicentennial Park to elevate Southlake schools to another level. All it takes is a vision and a committed community. And that, Southlake has in spades. Who’s with me? For more information on how to get involved, contact: David@SouthlakeArts.com

Though we likely won’t be fostering the next Itzhak Perlman, that shouldn’t be the measure of success. Very few kids go on to play professional football, but that certainly doesn’t dampen our Friday night enthusiasm and hunger for vanity license plates. (Go Dragons!)

Haul Out the Holly Sure, wreaths and ornaments have been up in craft stores since the Fourth of July, but now it’s high time to get our Norman Rockwall on as only Southlake can. Nothing is better for merriment and holiday cheer than Town Square. “Home for the Holidays” kicks off in grand style with the Tree Lighting ceremony on Saturday, November 23 from 5:30 to 8:30. The activities begin with The Southlake Community Band striking a festive mood. At 6:30, Mayor John Terrell will light the tree alongside a certain jolly guest of honor. Rounding out the evening, the Carroll ISD choirs and White's Chapel United Methodist Church hand bell choir will perform selections guaranteed to please the hearts and ears of all in attendance. Join us to celebrate the season with carriage rides, photos with Santa, snow tubing, holiday crafts and more.

The company will perform a full evening of dance accompanied by live chamber music. The program opens with Katie Puder’s light and classic *Italian Suite* with music by Igor Stravinsky. Featured will be a world premiere ballet accompanied by David Cooper, principal French horn of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra. Also on the program, ballerina Yulia Ilina in the famous *Dying Swan* solo by Mikhail Fokine. Tickets are $20 for adults and $15 for students, seniors and Apex members.

Deanna Kienast SOUTHLAKE VISUAL ARTIST

hen most people think of Southlake, they don’t think of a classy, driven, successful Abstract Artist who has created over 600 Texas-sized pieces in the past eight years. But that is exactly who you will find at the serene Brownstone home where Deanna lives and creates. “I am living out a fantasy!” she exclaims as I admired her lush, immense abstracts. After her son graduated from Carroll, she took it upon herself to create the balance and color that she couldn’t find for her home. Since then she has been selling her beautiful creations, most recently eight large pieces for an exclusive hotel in Manhattan. “This is just the beginning,” she says. “There is so much more to paint.” For more information about Deanna Kienast’s work, visit deannakienast.com

11 QUESTIONS FOR DEANNA Who is your favorite living artist?

What piece of art would you like to own the most?

Where do you get your inspiration?

Chuck Close. I met him at the Guggenheim several years ago. He’s a portrait photographer/painter who became paralyzed in 1988 and continued to paint.

A second Picasso. (Deanna purchased her first in 1976.)

Music, major construction, traffic and my clients.

Dance

is both an Art & a Sport story by Dana Bailey & Cortney Palomo

D

ance is a very unique activity because it can be classified as both a sport and an art. That is why many love and are passionate about dance. Being able to express yourself artistically while getting great exercise and keeping your body physically fit has the makings of a very fulfilling career. To be able to dance well, one needs to be flexible, strong, have stamina, have endurance and most importantly have a love for what they do. In any sport you need to work hard, and that is exactly what dancers do. For example, most dancers practice between five to thirty five hours a week. Dance is not only physically exhausting but also mentally exhausting. First, there is the pressure to perform. Then, in order to improve, a dancer must constantly be working on his/her technique so that everything is perfectly on point or better yet, “en pointe.� As you can see, dance has all the characteristics - and is just as demanding - as any sport.

DANCE Dance is also an art, because, with dance, you are able to tell a story by using only your body. Through choreography and facial expressions you are able to completely change yourself into another character. Through dance you are able to express emotions, relieve stress and be yourself. Many dancers and choreographers have been known for incredible emotions and stage presence. An example is George Balanchine, a famous choreographer, who continues to be known for his musicality and expression of emotions. Another is Alvin Ailey who founded the American Dance Theater in 1958. Ailey was famous for bringing modern dance to New York, and later, to the world. Fred Astaire and his style of tap dancing spanned nearly 70 years in film and on stage. These are just a few from the long list of virtuosic contributors to dance. From full length ballets to national and international dance competitions to ice dancing, which is currently part of the Olympics, there are a lot of dancing opportunities for athletes and artists with the right mix of stamina and style. Many people do not realize dance can be

than using your lower extremities to create height and distance through extreme movements, the goal is to generate percussive sounds and complex rhythms with your feet. As a result, the landing forces are similar to low-impact aerobic dancing and small dance jumps. Still, while tapping may be easier on the muscles and joints over time, the emphasis on ankle movements does put you at risk for sprains; hence, the need for injury prevention. All dancers can prolong their careers by attending to problems before they become serious and incorporating physical therapy exercises into their daily regimens.” “Old dancers never die, they just shuffle off.” Perhaps they sustain a career-ending injury. Maybe the paychecks just aren’t cutting it, or maybe traveling and touring becomes too exhausting. Not every dancer wants to continue on teaching or choreographing, and dancers possess a long list of qualities many outside the field may not. Trained dancers are more than capable of adapting to a very wide array of professions. They are focused, reliable, disciplined and willing to take direction. They are resilient and purposeful, creative and honorable. These

Old dancers never die, they just shuffle off. competitive but, actually, one of the most popular dance arenas for young people is dance competition. There are competitions for all ages for males and females, though a team usually consists of both. Former New York City Ballet dancer and current psychologist, Dr. Linda Hamilton, Ph.D., made the following statement in Dance Magazine regarding dance injuries and career spans. “Research shows the most physically strenuous dance techniques weed out performers at an early age. Ballet dancers generally start to lose ground in their 30s, whereas modern dancers can begin to feel adverse effects a decade later. The lifespan of tap dancers may be the greatest in terms of longevity for the simple reason that they have fewer injuries. Rather southlake ARTS

DANCE traits are the very essence of vitality and are treasured by any employer in any field. Dancers see the work ethic they learned in dance as a strength and understand that the skills and passion for excelling that they now have are transferable to many other career fields. It is in their DNA to be driven, determined, multi-tasking team players. They are very fast learners. Dancers are everywhere. Just look around. Those people you see out and about with great posture and turned-out-feet — they are probably dancers. Maybe you’ve not seen them on stage or in film yet, but you’ve probably met one at your favorite restaurants or teaching Pilates at your gym. Whether ballet, jazz, tap, contemporary or modern dancing, dance is both a sport and an art that provides exercise. It requires a lot of physical skill and love for dance to perform with grace and ease. It also requires copious amounts of discipline, determination and coordination set to the rhythm of music. Want to dance? If you have the right amount of talent, confidence, and patience, you can do anything. It doesn’t matter who you are or what kind of background you have. If it calls for you, you should surely answer back. You may not be perfect at it, but if you love it then you will shine, in your heart and on the world’s stage.

This is the Christmas Edition of The Rocky Horror Show and mistletoe abounds alongside all the classic show songs. Patrons are encouraged to come dressed up as their favorite character (Christmas themed, of course!) and to dance along to the Time Warp. OhLook is known for everything from their Summer Morning Family Series with Dora the Explorer to their Late Night Series

recently featuring the Broadway Revival Version of Carrie the Musical, which received rave reviews from area critics. Once a musical from Broadway has been made available, there’s a good chance you’ll be seeing it on the OhLook stage soon thereafter.

rt is a human expression, an expression of balance and beauty. Interior design is one of those expressions. It falls in the category of the Applied Arts, art that serves a specific aesthetic function. That aesthetic function is to balance the color, lighting, patterns, furniture and accessories that we use to make our homes feel personal. Once we have balanced the color palette of our homes and each room feels just the way we like to feel, we come to the crown jewel of interior design: artwork. Visual Artist’s typically create a work with a certain feeling in mind. As we go through life and we experience different art and connect with those feelings, we want to take them with us and surround our home with them. We often do this subconsciously. 34

and interplay between important movements responsible for shaping modern art, the exhibition surveys works from France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Russia, Spain, Switzerland, and Romania. Paintings include important Cubist works by Fernand Léger, Robert Delaunay and Gino Severini, characterized by their deconstructionist three dimensional representations. Rejecting tradition, Expressionist painters in Germany, Lyonel Feininger, Franz Marc, Gabriele Münter, Emil Nolde, and Max Pechstein sought to evoke spiritual meaning in art, through powerful representations of nature.

2012 Chamisal Unoaked Stainless Chardonnay Central Coast        Retail $18 Sale $14.99/btl. Boasts an aromatic mix of lush tropical fruits and ripe red delicious apples, paired with hints of springtime flowers and a clean minerality. The palate belies the Stainless winemaking; rich with ripe pineapple and white peach characters and a long, full mid palate with a clean, lingering acidity. – Chamisal Winemaker

2011 Champ de Rêves Pinot Noir Anderson Valley Retail $45 Sale $34.99/btl. Bright, fresh blueberry, cranberry and rose petal aromas underscored by subtle nuances of anise, toffee, white truffle and wet sand. Flavors of juicy huckleberry, hibiscus and tobacco emerge on the palate. Lively acidity, granite-like minerality and solid tannic backbone – all a testament to high-altitude winegrowing. - Winemaker 40
