COMMUNITY Read Music. Will Play. Mr. Oglesby got the word out in whatever way he could – working to identify incoming students, calling parents of rumored musicians, and sending out emails to band students, asking them to spread the word. The entrance criteria were 1) ability to read music and 2) a sense of adventure. Over the summer a rag tag group of 14 takers assembled, including some very nontraditional instruments for a jazz ensemble: tuba, cello, and bassoon.
Story by Barbara Milhizer What do you get when you combine a bassoon, a tuba, a cello, a handful of 13- and 14-year olds, with a band director whose motto is, “why not?” A jazz band, of course!
Photography by Carolyn Taluja
Serendipity smiled on Carroll ISD when Director Michael Oglesby came to Durham Intermediate and Carroll Middle Schools as a band director 6 years ago. Mr. Oglesby has a brass background and has always led after-school jazz programs, but a shift in scheduling last spring left him with an opening in his school day. Rather than let that go to waste, Mr. Oglesby proposed an idea – a jazz band to match the one Dawson Middle School has been able to field for a few years. The benefit would be an earlier introduction to jazz and a deeper bench in support of the award winning Carroll Senior High School Jazz Band, under the direction of David Lown. It would also be able to serve musicians who don't fit in the traditional big band setting. After a whirlwind proposal and approval process, Mr. Oglesby had his band, at least on paper. The wrinkle being that it was late May and students had already chosen electives for the upcoming school year.
“I spent all summer trying to wrap my head around what I was getting,” says Oglesby. “I heard a lot about what I couldn’t do from other musicians. I had to think nontraditionally.” The school’s entire music library wasn’t suitable, so Mr. Oglesby kept looking. Eventually he found some music that worked, made some adjustments, and assigned parts.
as Mr. Oglesby is concerned: the more the merrier, and the stranger the instrument combinations the more interesting the music. Stepping out of the traditional mold is exciting, and the group shows no hesitation. The band is already committed to a jazz contest in May and is experimenting with live streaming of its concerts. With the success of the Carroll Senior High School program, it shouldn’t take long for interest to filter to down to the next generation, the word to get out, and the CMS Jazz Band to grow quickly. For the moment though, Mr. Oglesby is content with his close-knit group. Says Oglesby, “I get to end everyday with jazz. What more could one want?” For more information on the Carroll Middle School Jazz Band, contact michael.oglesby@ southlakecarroll.edu
Going Solo For Oglesby, “every kid who wants a solo gets one.” Instead of the traditional big band sound, Mr. Oglesby’s goal is for these kids to learn style and technique. Improvisational skills are a priority. At their winter concert, 4 months after first coming together, the CMS Jazz Band played 10 selections with each solo improvised on the spot. It’s not unusual to transition from a trumpet to a bassoon solo in Mr. Oglesby’s arrangements. Working closely with Mr. Lown at the high school level, Mr. Oglesby can identify the types of skills to develop in beginning jazz musicians – skills that will serve them well in high school and beyond.
Making it Big The long-term goal is to get bigger and better. Mr. Oglesby is adding 2 more members in January, a violin and a bari sax, and he’s recruiting for next year. As far southlake ARTS
Do you want to learn how to sculpt bronze sculptures? You do? Then join the David Lemon Workshop January 30th - February 1st at the Grapevine Foundry and learn how! David Lemon’s bronzes are collected around the world. He started sculpting as a senior in high school and was offered scholarships but never thought that he’d be an artist, so he joined the Navy in 1965 for 4 years. He studied at the University of Utah but is mostly self taught and was a member of the American Indian and Cowboy Artists in the early 90s until they disbanded. He’s had one-man shows all over the West and beyond. In 1991, his one-man show was in Jakarta, Indonesia, and they bought a lot of his work. In fact, the artist to the Royal Family of Thailand bought a Bronc Buster Bronze of artist at the show. Lemon brings a personal history for his inspiration of these characters. One day in the 1950s, a young David was visiting his grandmother. They all lived in a cabin in the high Uinta Mountains in a meadow. His grandmother, in her old light blue flowered dress, with her apron on, and her hair in a tight bun on the back of her head took him to a window in the cabin. He can still remember the smell of damp dirt, old rotting logs, the roof still had sod on it, cool inside and dark but for the window. She took him to that window. She pointed and told him that when she was a little girl, in the late 1800s, she remembered watching the Ute Indians as they walked through the woods at the edge of the forest on their hunting parties. They'd come to the cabin and ask for food, and they were never turned away without food. It was that moment that sparked his intense desire to create Indians in his art. Join David Lemon January 30th at the Grapevine Foundry!

DEANNA KIENAST IN NEW YORK
THIS IS WHAT THE AMSTERDAM WHITNEY GALLERY IN CHELSEA HAS TO SAY ABOUT DEANNA’S WORK. “CORNUCOPIC EYE-LUMINATIONS” Inspired by Mark Rothko's proclamation that "I'm interested only in expressing basic human emotions," Contemporary Dallas abstract master Deanna Kienast's visceral and emotive canvases are passionate, meaningful and dramatic as she declares: "Happiness is the pulsating passion of my art." Deanna Kienast's non-representational acrylic paintings speak in languages both iconographic and moving, existing in a world far beyond the literal. As symbolic renderings of the human soul and psyche, in all of its prismatic fluctuations, her works straddle many levels and speak in many tongues as she unearths the truth that defines our real selves. Painting with flowing freedom, her nonobjective canvases vibrate with visceral energy, translating visual space where the conscious and subconscious coalesce and integrate. Intellectually and emotionally, the viewer is dynamically intertwined with the canvases, charged by the powerful aesthetics of creation which are synthesized into a visual sensation. Not merely recording the world that Ms. Kienast sees, but rather recreating the emotions she feels, she expertly balances a varied color palette, utilizing color to achieve visual perceptions and emotional responses. By painting color as a sensation, this gifted artist transmits the emotions of life by juxtaposing bright and muted shades to give each image a dynamic flow. Her interest in the unconscious effect of color on mood rings through her work, creating a symphonic feeling of empathy translated into hue. Colors rise and fall and explode with dazzling contrasts as she interplays depth, juxtaposition, and light;
while the materiality of her paint bursts with coloration, achieving powerful three-dimensional tactility. Radiating a sensory cue, Ms. Kienast emphasizes that color is not only about seeing, but it is also about feeling, as she entices cognition to experience the colorful canvas both visually as an external object but also emotionally as an internal object. The depth of her painting, with its clear and popping brushstrokes raising from the canvas, reflects the texture and ever changing emotion that Ms. Kienast seeks to capture in the seemingly static medium of painting. She takes the task of paint and brush and accelerates them, giving her works a motion that is an image of velocity, emotions swimming by at the speed of light. The crescendos and decrescendos of arcing shapes and illuminating colors translate into a carefully created cadence of creative feeling, inspiring joy but allowing the viewer room to see the highs and lows that come with euphoria. Boldly and firmly embracing her individuality as an artist, Deanna Kienast's passionate paintings push the bounds of abstraction, as her oeuvre enters the realms of the extraordinary. Alluring and intoxicating, this masterful artist's artwork is acclaimed throughout Europe and the U.S. and has participated in a lifetime of immersion in the arts, culminating in an outstanding body of work which has catapulted her into a meaningful position in the contemporary art arena. Treasured in both public and private collections in Texas as well as the U.S., the presence of her works in prestigious collections is affirmation of her continually expanding reputation. Amsterdam Whitney Gallery is proud to shine the spotlight on this rising star!

A close friend of mine who has traveled throughout the world once told me: “You know, if someone ever took everything I own, one thing they could not take away from me are my memories.” I’ve never forgotten those words, and because of that, I perhaps now enjoy every moment more than ever — every day, in any way possible. Because, after all, every day leaves behind many memories.
You see, José’s mother suffered from Alzheimer’s Disease in her later years, and what that disease does is rob people of their memory: the memories of their life, the ability to recognize people and things. I felt compelled to title the painting as such because the “moment” that I immortalized on

On Dec. 3, I had the joy of presenting former Texas Rangers pitcher José Guzman with a painting I had created some time ago — a painting of José with his mother, Maria Teresa. The painting is titled, “Memorias con Mamá,” or “Memories with Mom.”
canvas was a happy memory in their lives. It was a time when José’s mother was happy and healthy. It still is a warm memory for José and represents a moment dear to his heart. I wanted José to own the painting because it also represents a cause he is very serious about — helping people afflicted with Alzheimer’s. José also is a longtime supporter of the food pantry at Evergreen at Keller Senior Living and has steadily been providing food to that senior community to the delight of its residents. Dianne Gonzalez, Community Director for Evergreen at Keller and a longtime friend, helped to arrange the art presentation, which we decided to make part of their 1st Annual “Parade of Trees Celebration.” Beautifully ornate trees, wreaths and Christmas decorations were displayed and auctioned during the evening to benefit Metroport Meals on Wheels and José’s Guzman 23 Foundation, which aids Alzheimer’s patients. This wonderful event also honored Nansii Downer, who is Metroport’s Volunteer Services Director. The evening turned magical — hearts were warmed, tears were shared, and laughter became contagious. By the end of the evening, there seemed to be this great sense of camaraderie, friendship, love and understanding. It was a heartfelt celebratory night, and I hope everyone who was there will treasure and cherish the memory of it for a long time. - Lamberto™ southlake ARTS

- Vincent Van Gogh to his brother Theo The Musée d’Orsay exhibit is nearly at an end at the Kimbell, but you still have time to see it if you haven’t. In that exhibit is a self-portrait by Vincent Van Gogh which also is the cover of his pseudo-autobiography ‘Dear Theo’. Van Gogh didn’t start painting until his late 20s; he sketched up to that point. Initially, he wanted to go into the clergy but was drawn toward art. Before modern luxuries like electricity, the telephone and email, Vincent was in the most part supported by his brother Theo. Theo's unfailing financial and emotional support allowed his brother to devote himself entirely to painting. During this time, almost every day, Vincent would take out a pen (and ink) and paper and then proceed to pour out his heart to his brother. These letters were originally in French but have been translated into english. This is a revealing autobiography from a personal point of view of one of the world’s greatest artists. The perspective that you can gain from reading this book is priceless. Whether you are a patron of the arts, artist, musician, actor, or decorator, you owe it to yourself to read Vincent’s letters to his brother Theo. Theo’s love for his brother kept Vincent going for his short 37 years. When Vincent passed, Theo did as well six months later. The cause of death was listed as dementia paralytica caused by "heredity, chronic disease, overwork, sadness". In 1914, Theo's body was exhumed and reburied with his brother at Auvers-sur-Oise. southlake ARTS
An overachieving red. Orin Swift has been making quite the impact on the wine world. Certainly most of you have seen the labels with the big letters, standing for different locations.

A continuation of an original concept to seek out particular vineyards and make an eclectic blend, we have discovered new sites to advance our original purpose. Super-concentrated fruit from old vines with low yields are accented with a judicious oak program for a balanced and distinctive wine.”
THE SENSES: “An alluring cast of blooming crimson and deep red shades are immediately present in the glass. Complimenting the appearance is an impressive intensity on the nose with elevated dark cherry and exotic spice notes. The entry is rich with youthful berry compote, floral, and plum flavors, complemented with bright acidity. The finish is expansive and pleasing with a persistent mocha tinge and silky tannins.”
“The E-2 is a new compilation from the Iberian Peninsula, hence ‘E-2’. Very bold character varietals used - Grenache, Tempranillo, Monastrell and Carignan make this blend powerful and rich but well balanced.“
-Rex Gourley, Bear Creek Spirits & Wine
“E-2 is part of the location series from Dave Phinney. The fruit is sourced from several regions across the Iberian Peninsula. The blend is mostly Grenache and Tempranillo. Darker fruits and a bit of a floral/spice note.”
