PUBLISHER’S LETTER

New Girl in Town, 1962 - Velox Ward

People come from all over the world to live in our bubble, and now masterpieces of art are coming from all over the world as well. It was such a thrill to see and touch Michelangelo’s Pieta at the Foundry in Grapevine! The detail, balance and beauty of the sculpture is mindblowing and the techniques involved are above my level of expertise to comprehend. Luckily, we have in our community a Sculptor, Painter and Poet who studied art at the Louvre to eloquently explain the beauty of it to us, Shereen Miller, Ph.D! You may notice that the magazine is thicker now and the publisher’s letter is taking up less room. This is because we have so many rich stories to share with you we had no choice but to grow! Important events that require your action to attend! - Naturally Sweet, November 1st, Bob Jones Nature Center - Buy your ticket now, they will sell out. - The Happening, October 16th - il Calabrese, RSVP to david@southlakearts.com, space is limited.

ABOUT THE CENTER: The Bob Jones Nature Center, located at 355 E. Bob Jones Rd. in Southlake covers over 700 acres of forest, wetlands and prairie in which over 300 species of birds and wildlife make their home. The Nature Center offers preschool classes, classes for homeschool families, and Girl Scout and Boy Scout programs and summer camp for ages 5 – 11. There are photography classes and periodic classes offered by area experts that appeal to all ages. Star Gazing is also available provided by the Fort Worth Astronomical Society. The Nature Center has bird walks scheduled during most months of the year. There are trails to hike. The old red barn at the Nature Center is also a popular place for family photographs. The Nature Center is named after John Dolford "Bob" Jones, a former slave. The story of the man behind the name Bob Jones is an important part of the Nature Center’s story and a testament to the American spirit. Bob was a sheepherder on his father's farm. After the Civil War, Bob was set free and given 60 acres of land by his father. That 60 acres is preserved today on the grounds of the Bob Jones Nature Center. Over time, Bob and his wife, Almeada Chisum, and their ten children expanded the farm until they owned almost 2,000 acres in the area we now know as Southlake. Bob Jones left behind a legacy with this wonderful property that continues to serve as a place of learning and a home for wildlife.

CHRISTOPHER H. MARTIN

CONTROLLED SPILL 20 YEARS OF PAINT

lass, water, heat, paint – add to those the alchemy of vision and persistence and twenty years later an ancient art is permanently elevated to a modern expression. Celebrating two decades of painting, artist Christopher H. Martin unveils a reception titled “Controlled Spill” in his eponymous Dallas gallery on Saturday, November 8 from 7 to 10 p.m. Self taught in the medium of reverse glass painting, Martin began his career at the age of 25. (A young entrepreneur, Martin owned a tropical fish store while in college in his home state of Florida. Painting reef scenes on the glass of the store led Martin to experiment with expressing himself through painting). Leaning hard into the field of abstraction, Martin has continued the dialog of paint and acrylic and often paint on canvas for 20 years.

tropical fish, the movement of ski tracks in the snow, or the flight patterns of birds have inspired entire series of work. The past five years have seen Martin tackle ever larger works culminating in 2012, when Christopher was commissioned to create a 120-foot painting inspired by Formula One racing for the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas.

Guiding pigment and water across the slick surface of clear acrylic, Martin is essentially painting his works blind and backwards, as the pieces do not tolerate peeking during their creation. Composed of sheer layers of metallic paint and water the pieces are created in his studio at the base of Highlands Ski Resort in Aspen, Colorado. Taking cues from nature, his paintings bear the organic stamp of this inspiration: the palette and markings of

The Christopher Martin Gallery at 1533 Dragon Street in Dallas will fete a celebration of appreciation showing a selection of 20 editioned prints showcasing his evolving style over the years, and large-scale new works will be exhibited on November 8, 2014. A retrospective book will be released in time for the holidays.

Kidz Creations, a charity project Martin launched in 2001 that involves painting with hundreds of children over the past 13 years, will exceed the $500,000 benchmark this year. From his first gallery opened in 1995 to his recent inclusion in “Personal Structures” of the 2013 Venice Biennale, Martin has shown extensively across the nation and internationally.

MUSIC

almost hate to tell you about how incredible this concert was since you've already missed it. I first encountered Youssou N'Dour in a textbook for beginning French. Wanting to learn more, I checked out his documentary I Bring What I Love. What I heard from this musician and his band was pure passion, intense faith, mesmerizing vocals and killer percussion. I immediately added seeing Youssou N'Dour to my bucket list, knowing that his U.S. appearances were few. Years later while scrolling through the great options at the ATTPAC, I couldn't believe it when I saw Youssou and his band, the Super Etoile de Dakar, would be performing in Dallas the following month. Charles Santos of TITAS, a man to whom I will forever be grateful, was responsible for bringing the brilliance of this man and his band to Dallas. Youssou is the heart of his country. As a pioneer, composer, singer, producer, and bandleader, he’s been mixing traditional

mbalax rhythms with Afro­Cuban pop sounds for decades. Named in TIME magazine’s annual list of “the hundred men and women whose power, talent or moral example is transforming the world,” Youssou is also the Minister of Culture and Tourism of Senegal, has collaborated with Peter Gabriel, Bono and others to raise awareness of a myriad of global issues, and led a campaign to free Nelson Mandela. In other words, he’s the most famous person you’ve likely never heard of...until now. On September 19, the audience in the ATTPAC was immediately transported to the sights and sounds of West Africa. Some felt more at home at this concert than anywhere else outside of Senegal, while others were hearing and seeing it for the first time. Within minutes of the show beginning, a hundred

people had swarmed to the front of the orchestra seats, dancing and singing along. The infectious beats even had those in the balconies on their feet, hips swaying, hands clapping and smiles a mile wide. Youssou’s distinct voice took a magical hold and the impeccable band never backed down. What emerged musically from the stage was an intoxicating barrage of polyrhythms by multiple percussionists, funky beats from bass and guitar, saxophone, backup vocalists and more. The band were mostly wearing traditional boubous (long, patterned robes) and there was a dedicated dancer whose fast dancing, flips and multiple costume changes kept the crowd visually stimulated. This concert meant a lot to the audience for different reasons, and not one of them left unaffected by the flawless musicianship and pure, raw joy of the performance. southlake ARTS

Saturday, September 20, walkers of all types gathered on Main Street in Southlake Town Square to take a stand against PKD and possibly win a cool playhouse for the family.

According to the Walk for PKD’s webpage, the coordinators have reached $51,486 of their $80,000 goal; but supporters are prepared to continue their fight.

For those unaware, PKD, or Polycystic Kidney Disease, is a disorder that “The event hopefully raises awareness of this horrible disease,” Moore plagues its victim with cysts that form on the kidneys. Commonly, this said. “Southlake and the surrounding areas are very community-oriented problem contributes to complications like high blood pressure, and and are great at supporting each other for worthy causes. Statistically, kidney failure. According to the Mayo Clinic, PKD is an inherited disease we all know someone who has PKD and getting everyone involved to that is spread through a person’s genes. help find a cure is very important.” This information may seem grim, but county-wide PKD Foundation chapters can see the light at the end of this dark tunnel. The Walk For PKD on September 20 was a 5k aimed to help raise funds to find a cure for the disease. Prizes for donations included several electronics, clothing items, and other fun selections. The big prize that was set to go home with one lucky winner was a playhouse designed by local sponsors in the vein of Disney’s animated film Frozen. Wynne Moore, Vice President of the Wynne Moore Group, was a sponsor of the event and had a hand in building the playhouse. “My husband, Perry Moore, drew the plan for the house and helped put many of the finishing touches on it. We helped advertise the sale of the tickets for it, as well,” Moore said.

MICHELANGELO’S PIETÀ [14 9 8 -14 9 9 ] Master Artist Shereen Miller, Ph.D

20

OCT 2014

southlake ARTS


FINE ART

I

n the summer of 1971, on my first visit to Rome, as a young aspiring artist in search of my own creative truth, I stood in awe in front of Michelangelo’s marble sculpture - the Pietà, positioned to the right at the entrance of St. Peter’s Basilica. The Pietà immediately evoked a deep sense of sadness, and a sudden surge of tears welled unconsciously as I was drawn like a magnet toward the iconic masterpiece.

At the time, I had no idea what a rare privilege it was to caress the marble sculpture with my bare hands while I sensed the creative energy of the Italian Renaissance and felt the electricity of Michelangelo’s fiery passion. Overwhelmed by emotions, I stepped out of St. Peter’s Basilica into the open courtyard with the sounds of Michelangelo’s chisel that echoed deep within. Barely a year later, in the summer of 1972, a deranged geologist, in a fit of religious rage, hammered the beautiful Pietà until pieces of marble flew in all directions. Over the years, I have often wondered if timeless icons of Fine Art endured the same destructive and re-creative patterns of Nature. The reconstructed twentieth-century version of the Pietà was re-positioned in its original place but behind a bulletproof acrylic panel. Today, I view the Pietà from a different perspective as a Fine Artist extruded by Nature’s creative processes, and as I moved through the complex world of creativity within its physical and non-physical dimensions I was able to understand my emotional reaction to Pietà that summer’s day in Rome, in 1971. Michelangelo composed the iconic sculpture in such a way as to evoke strong emotions of Pathos within the viewer and he succeeded. In addition, the Pietà represented Michelangelo’s creative ability to summarize the universal nuances of Pathos into a single pyramidical visual form.

He began work on the Pietà at the age of twenty-three and completed it within a year. Some have perceived Pietà as a narrative work of Art devoid of creative conjecture. Such perceptions are based on a lack of knowledge. Placed within the context of the High Renaissance style, Pietà embraced its harmonious ideals, compositional style, the sheer hard work and dedicated endurance in the minute details that such Renaissance Realistic forms demanded. It must be understood that Realistic works of Fine Art are not devoid of the creative inference in the hands of a “true artist.” The pyramidical or triangular form is know instinctively. It symbolizes the timeless connection between Nature, Humanity and the Universal Creator. Michelangelo’s Pietà is of an equilateral triangular form. In order to achieve this successfully, he had to chisel exaggerated folds in Mary’s garment that flowed lavishly in soft cascades toward a horizontal dimension to determine the base of the triangle.

Many true creators instinctively draw upon the archetypal symbols of the unconscious psyche. The Mother-Child archetype is as old as time and depicts the endless love a mother has for her child and this archetype immediately strikes a resonant chord. In other words, Michelangelo embraced both the physical and non- physical dimensions of Fine Art from different perspectives in his marble sculpture of Pietà which afforded a sense of movement within an inanimate form. Mary’s statuesque composure draped in regal attire and the quiet serenity of her face creates a sharp, diametric contrast to the limp, lifeless figure of her beloved son stripped of his clothing during one of the most violent acts of humanity. These opposite dynamics gives Pietà her strength and beauty. The Pietà clearly defines the Pathos of life from which none of us can escape and it teaches us to remain in serenity within the endless cycles of life that must ebb and flow for the continued preservation of all that exists.

THE TORMENT OF SAINT ANTHONY

FINE ART

[14 8 8] Master Artist Shereen Miller, Ph.D

Skill in any art form can be achieved at a young age as it is an acquired process. Certainly, some have more inherent talent than others, but painterly skill is only a part of the conscious or physical dimension of Fine Art that includes Form, Color, Composition, Perspective and Aesthetic techniques, among other nuances. There is the non-physical dimension of Fine Art but this is rarely addressed because of its elusive qualities, nevertheless it is of equal importance in Fine Art. Likewise, Form and Color are the two main components of the visual vocabulary and must be understood within their physical and psychological context. When Michelangelo [1475-1564] did his first painting at the age of thirteen years, he was under the tutorship of Ghirlandaio [1449-1494] who would have instilled upon his young protege the importance of the creative processes in the field of Fine Art. However, during that period, the engravings of a young German artist, Martin Schongauer, were in wide circulation. southlake ARTS

OCT 2014

23


MICHELANGELO Martin Schongauer, a German engraver of Fine Art [1448-1491] chose a circular form for his composition of the Trial of Saint Anthony. The circular form is the oldest archetypal symbol of the unconscious human psyche. It symbolizes the Wholeness and Unity of life. What Schongauer communicated through his engraving of the Trial of Saint Anthony is that both positive and negative forces co-exist within life to create the necessary tension for individual evolutionary progress. Although the fledgling Michelangelo copied the circular format and visual content of Schongauer’s engraving, the Trial of Saint Anthony, it is hardly possible to expect the young protege to grasp the subtle nuances, balance and counter-balance of Color and Form that emerges through years of experience or the harmonious ideals of the Renaissance period in which he eventually played a significant role. However, the dark, vivid foreground in contrast to the soft aerial perspective of the background gives Michelangelo’s first painting, The Torment of Saint Anthony, an interesting appeal. The masterful renovations of Michelangelo’s first painting by New York's Metropolitan Museum’s Conservationist Michael Gallagher shows a sophisticated understanding in Fine Art restoration. The countless hours of dedicated patience in the delicate removal of the congested layers of varnish to reveal a painting executed over five centuries ago, is worthy of praise, and without which Michelangelo’s first painting might still have remained in obscurity. In the final analysis, what makes a work of Fine Art truly valuable is its ability to communicate to the viewer the silent language of the universal soul resonant within every human being.

DALLAS - The Belo Collection of Texas Art - a thoughtfully curated selection of 300 lots of artwork and photography, including David Bates' seminal The Blue Heron - will appear at Heritage Auctions on October 18 as part of a day-long presentation of Texas artists at auction. Heritage's Texas Art Signature Auction will take place earlier the same day. The Belo Collection represents some of the best contemporary art produced in Texas over the last 60 years, as well as works by well-known national artists, and will be presented at a special auction beginning at 1 p.m. in Heritage's Design District Annex at 1518 Slocum Street in Dallas. “These are the artists who are building Texas' future art legacy,” said Brian Roughton, Managing Director of Fine Arts at Heritage.


FINE ART

Lush Gardens, 1997 - Bob “Daddy-O” Wade

“With Post-War and Contemporary Art taking top-lot honors and more interest surging into collecting regional art, the Belo Collection will appeal to both dedicated Texas art collectors as well as those looking to begin a collection.” The Belo company began in the newspaper publishing business in 1842 and is the oldest continually operating business in Texas. As the publisher of The Dallas Morning News, the company became a corporation consisting of printing and publishing enterprises, broadcasting stations and an online publishing company. Belo has been a strong patron of the arts, particularly works by women and minority artists. Under the stewardship of Judith Segura starting in 1986, the Belo Collection became the perfect platform to support local artists and galleries engaged in the thriving Texas contemporary art scene. The

earliest works in the collection include regional artists active in the 1940s and expanded into household names like Rauschenberg, Judd and Lichtenstein. The auction proceeds will be donated to The Belo Foundation, which supports college-level journalism education and the development of urban parks in Dallas. Interestingly, rather than presenting the works with estimates, the Belo Collection will be presented with an “opening bid,” Roughton said. Auction estimates are most often established on secondary market results for similar works in size, subject, condition, and period in the artist's career. In the case of the Belo Collection, many of the works by artists in the collection have not previously sold at auction. “It was agreed a very enticing opening bid - regardless of the current value or gallery price - gives everyone a good chance of placing a bid before the hammer falls!” Roughton said.

D F W PA C :

Fame with Family Southlake seems to be a source of nourishment for the modern artist. Hence, it is no surprise to find an entire school dedicated to artistic growth. “It’s kind of like a FAME for Southlake,” owner Dana Bailey said of the DFW Performing Arts Conservatory. Located in the heart of Southlake, the DFW PAC boasts an array of programs that could fit any artistic talent. According to Bailey, the school, now in its sixth year, is built to support the working student in the entertainment industry. “They can literally take their curriculum on-set and work with an on-set teacher,” Bailey said. The school is nationally accredited and an average student’s day is divided into two pieces. The first half of the day uses a homeschool curriculum and certified teachers teach students academics. The second half focuses on the artistic goal that the student desires to achieve. According to the school’s site, the PAC dedicates approximately 24 hours a week to academia, and 26 hours a week to the arts.

“It really is like a family. You bring all of these kids together that have the same passion about the arts and they literally feed off of one another.” According to Bailey, artistic goals are met through the variety of programs that DFW PAC offers. Students can choose between film and television acting, musical theater acting, improvisation, dance, instrumental music, and vocals. In addition, a course teaches the value of marketing oneself through website design. Boasting a varied and highly credible staff on both ends of the school’s spectrums, it is clear that Bailey and her spouse, co-owner Scott Bailey have got a plan for success based around the lives of these students.

Bailey said the school also caters to the student’s religious desires as well as their educational needs. Scott Bailey, the school’s headmaster and owner, hosts a non-mandatory Bible study for students once every Thursday. Bailey said that the school even extends out of its walls to get help for its students. Hall Music Productions and Dallas Summer Musicals assist in the training of the young artists. Recently, DFW PAC did extensive work with Disney Channel On-set Coach Wendy Faraone. Faraone has been a Disney coach for the last

ten years and has had the pleasure of working on Disney staples like Hannah Montana and Wizards of Waverly Place. The group working with Faraone had traveled to Los Angeles last May to begin coaching which concluded in Southlake last month with an energetic performance of skits for parents. The performance consisted of short, fiveminute skits from the numerous Disney shows that Faraone has worked on. It was clear that these students were young professionals who were taking advantage of every minute they had with Faraone.

Reviews on the school have been nothing short of rave, based on the school’s web site. The PAC has been labeled as a “good investment” for the future, an “incredible” influence on artistic talent, and comes highly recommended for kids pursuing the arts. The DFW PAC is open year-round for auditions and targets students between 3rd and 12th grade. Bailey said the only real requirement aside from meeting the age limit is that the applicant be passionate about at least one aspect of the arts. Bailey said that usually, she will meet a student with a specific desire and talent, but by the end of their education, their talent has expanded to include numerous aspects of the arts. “They know how to sing, dance, act, and play an instrument,” Bailey said with obvious pride. Bailey said the school likes to keep the attendance small between 15 and 30 students. This creates an intimacy and the ability to further open artistic doors in their talents. “It really is like a family. You bring all of these kids together that have the same passion about the arts and they literally feed off of one another,” she said. The school also comes with a history of past successes in the field of show business. According to Bailey, DFW PAC has had students go on to dance in music videos, book pilots for T.V. shows, act in commercials, and even taste national fame. “I think we’ve had one to go on to audition for The Voice and also American Idol,” Bailey said, adding that she has also taught a finalist for Disney’s Next Big Thing. Tuition for the DFW PAC ranges from 9,000 to 13,000 a year which is a competitive price range when compared to other local college-type school programs. One must remember that the entertainment industry is a very lucrative business, and to break into that would make any amount of tuition live up to its value in a child’s life.

Information on audition requirements and applications can be found at the school’s website, www.DFWPAC.com and Dana Bailey can be directly contacted for auditions at artisticdir@dfwpac.com.

Summer came and brought with it family gatherings, plenty of sun, and lots of laughs. As the heat begins to dwindle and random clouds form in the evenings, a slight chill may be felt when the sun goes down at this time of year. Yes, October is here, and although trick-or-treats and bobbing for apples are classic traditions, several members of the Dallas Metroplex are ready to unleash havoc on the masses this year with the opening of their elaborate haunted attractions. Never fear! Southlake Arts Magazine has compiled a list of the top five haunted attractions in the area, along with a “scare ranking” to determine which members of the family should attend the event. Halloween is here. Time to take a closer look at the “haunt,” a new American classic. HANGMAN’ HOUSE OF HORRORS Starting this list with the most familyfriendly haunts, the spotlight shines first on Fort Worth favorite Hangman’s House of Horrors. This haunt had been a landmark off of the 30 West for 25 years. Although the legendary Hangman edifice is now vacant (the old warehouse it once called home), the Hangman still thrives. For the haunt’s 26th year in the business, the fear has moved to a new location on Blue Mound Road in Fort Worth. Yes, the name is intimidating to the average reader; however, Hangman’s House of Horrors is not a gore fest and is a great trip for families with children ages ten and older to attend. In the past, Hangman’s

SCREAM HALLOWEEN THEME PARK has had fun themes like a haunted library, spooky drive-in theaters, and scary fairy tales. Some scenes could frighten younger audiences, but the frights in this haunt are actually quite friendly. Aside from the main haunt, the creators also have three other attractions for guests to experience. If that’s not enough incentive, the net proceeds from this year’s haunt are being donated to American Cancer Society, a Wish With Wings, Cenikor, Victory Therapy Center, and Safe Haven. www.HANGMANS.com

If the family is looking to make an entire evening of their haunt experience, visit Screams Halloween Theme Park. Located on the grounds of Scarborough Fair in Waxahachie, this haunt is worth the trek, especially for large families. When it comes to a full experience, Screams goes beyond the average haunt. The event features five haunted attractions, live entertainment, seasonal vendors, games, food and drink. The haunt sections of the park may be extreme for some of the younger audiences, but Screams management encourages all ages with its abundance of fall fun. www.SCREAMSPARK.com

DARK HOUR

MOXLEY MANOR

The newest addition to the Metroplex haunt family is Plano’s Dark Hour. Although it first opened its doors during the 2013 Halloween season, its staff has been dedicated to making the community scream most of the off season. From December to July, Dark Hour offers a themed experience that is much different from their October show. This October, visitors find themselves caught in the middle of a feuding witch coven and the local Voodoo tribe. According to the haunt’s website, the goal of the production is to be “the highest quality haunt experience available”. With its dedication to the craft, cinematic set pieces, high-energy talent, atmospheric lighting and a strong sound system, Dark Hour has proved itself a “must-see” attraction for the 2014 Halloween season. For those with ailments and cold feet, be warned that this haunt contains several strobe lights, fog machines, and bloody set pieces.

The final fright is Colleyville favorite Moxley Manor. This haunt was created by haunt aficionado Richard Alvarez, who is also big on charity with his scares. According to the Manor’s page, proceeds from the 2014 event will benefit The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and the fight against blood cancer. This charity is appropriate considering the amounts of red found on both the house’s set pieces and its maniacal crew. This community haunt is not for the faint of heart and has been known to send even the bravest guests screaming out the exit...all the way to their cars. This haunt has all of the fears covered from clowns to fear of the dark; they are all there waiting for the next brave visitor. www.MOXLEYMANOR.com

ZOMBIE MANOR Zombies are all the hype and Arlington haunt Zombie Manor has enough corpses in it to fill a season of The Walking Dead. Here, guests traverse through an old plantation, where they literally come face to face with hordes of the undead. If visiting this haunt, be prepared for a high-octane experience, realistic zombie effects, and intense actors that will literally scare you from every corner of the haunt. Haunted Attraction Magazine selected Zombie Manor as one of the must-see haunts of 2013.

UP AND COMING

Santana is a 4th grader at The Clariden School in Southlake who recently debuted in her first acting role playing the character of Little Tituba in the television series, Salem. Santana has a great passion for life and brings the greatest energy and enthusiasm to not only her acting but to school. Santana, although only 9 years of age, contributes positively and shows great leadership in her school work and with her peers. You can tell by her responses to the questions below that family is significantly important to her and something she treasures. I also don’t know too many students who say that there is “nothing” that they don’t like about school. Santana continues to enjoy her passion for school, horses, family and acting. I’m sure we’ll see more of her in years to come. Santana works with The Clutts agency out of Dallas. Acting Roles and Appearances: Played child witch in television show Salem. Appeared on Good Morning Dallas where she modeled a tankini for Gymboree. Best part about doing role in Salem: I loved seeing all the characters in makeup and without their make-up. The demon (Michael) had black contacts so that was a bit creepy. It was also really amazing how they make movies. They do scenes and then put the scenes together. It was great being a part of a set. We went to Louisiana and I had my own trailer. It said “Little Tituba”.

MUSIC

aurice Sendak’s timeless tale Where the Wild Things Are has graced glossy pages, playhouses, and most recently, the silver screen. Now, thanks to the Dallas Symphony Orchestra and renowned composer Geoffrey Gordon, the ears of the Metroplex can experience a wild rumpus of their own. The exciting world premiere concert will be at Morton H. Myerson Symphony Center on Sunday, October 26. Gordon’s composition has the purpose of putting the audience in Max (the main character of the book)’s shoes. Guests will be able to hear the journey of Max and his adventures with his friends, the “Wild Things”. Gordon has composed pieces of music that have been performed across the span of three continents. He has been highly praised by numerous critical outlets as a “brilliant,” “haunting,” wonderfully idiomatic” composer.

This praise alone should be reason enough for the family to hop in the car and make the trip to Dallas for a grand piece of culture. The performance is a part of the 2014/15 Family Concert Series. According to the DSO website, the concerts in this series are meant to open the eyes of children and expose them to the art of the symphony. There are three concerts in the series. Aside from Wild Things, December offers “DSO Family Christmas”, and May will host a rendition of Peter and the Wolf. “These concerts have become family traditions at the DSO and in North Texas,” DSO President and CEO Jonathan Martin said in a promotion on the organization’s website. Family subscriptions for the three concerts or the single Wild Things event can be purchased at DALLASSYMPHONY.com or by calling (214) 692-0203.

FOOD

New Jersey is home to the Sloppy Joe Sandwich. Most people think of loose ground beef in tomato sauce on a toasted hamburger bun. Not in New Jersey. In the Garden State, it is a sandwich which has dressing, filling, slaw, and bread. The most popular is a three-layer sandwich with turkey, ham, swiss and cole slaw with Russian dressing on rye. But there are many variations of the sandwich throughout the Turnpike. (Which exit are ya’?). In 1978, an elderly gentleman came into my family’s store and started to talk about a sandwich he had had when he was a young man in New Jersey. The sandwich was the signature sandwich at a deli called the Lustig. I told him I would be happy to help recreate the sandwich, so we began. It is a variation of the Sloppy Joe so popular there. Of course we Weinberger-ized it just a touch. But I can assure you the old gentleman was very pleased with the finished product. First we take a pumpernickel roll and toast it to caramelize the bread, to bring out that chocolate-coffee flavor that is so distinct to that style of bread. While the bread is hot, we put slices of a tart baby Swiss cheese to adhere to the top and bottom pieces of the bread. On the bottom, we put a generous layer of creamy,sweet Kentucky-style cole slaw for texture. On top of that, a delicious mound of warm, thin slices of a peppery-smoked Romanian-style pastrami. To accent the peppery meat, a drizzle of sweet, creamy Russian Style dressing. and nothing like cold hickory-smoked turkey breast to give it another dimension of flavor. Cover with the top slice of the roll and you have the famous Lustig of old. Come and try one!


BEER/WINE/CHEESE

DELIRIUM TREMENS ”TREMBLING MADNESS” According to the Huyghe brewery in Belgium, “First you see pink elephants, then crocodiles, then dragons and then finally Alfred Hitchcock’s birds. We are sure that your favorite part will be the pink elephants!” Delirium tremens is Latin for “trembling madness”, commonly nicknamed “the DTs”, indicating a violent sickness induced by withdrawal after alcohol abuse. Although it is commonly thought that sufferers hallucinate pink elephants, which may explain their use on the beer's label, the most common animals seen in delirium tremens hallucinations are cats, dogs, and snakes. A tasty blonde, a spicy scent and a round flavor that warms the palate.
