PUBLISHER’S LETTER It’s August and it’s time for the kids to go back to school! As you can clearly see on the previous page, arts education is for all kids, not just those that want to pursue a career in it. Isn’t it interesting that someone who had such an impact on the world (Einstein) spoke so highly of the importance of the arts to his work (music)?

Our new mayor, Laura Hill, with her company, Downey Publishing, has raised over $715,000 for rural schools and communities in the Southwest; David Gappa has a beautiful new piece; and, from the design district, Kenneth Crain has a massive custom bed created with custom steel, New Orleans shutters and reclaimed wood.

For our “young Einstein’s” that play stringed instruments, some exciting new developments are coming about thanks to Southlake resident Tom Stephen (Burger Shack, Starwood). An after school string program will be holding auditions in late August and the Burger Shack will be hosting an Open Mic!

Enjoy the Issue!

Some noteworthy events coming up: The Apex Season is kicking off September 10th with historical photos of Southlake (catering by the Feedstore!), The FWSO is having a musical festival at the end of August, and all the way from Scotland at the Kimbell is ‘Botticelli to Braque’.

HAPPENINGS

There will be an Open Mic night star ting in September on Tuesday nights from 6-8 pm at the Burger Shack right at the entrance to Bicentennial Park off of 1709. You might be asking yourself, “What is an open mic and why is it important?� Glad you asked! An open mic is a place where students, amateurs and professional musicians, comedians, actors and poets gather to informally share their material for each other. The purpose of the gatherings are for the creative types to forget friendships and gain experience and feedback through performing for their peers. The open mic is organized by a host and there is a sign up sheet. Everyone that would like to perform signs the sheet and waits their turn to perform. Each performer generally goes up to the stage, does one piece and then returns to being a member of the audience. This is an especially exciting and important event for our young creative t ypes who need to net work with each other (IRL not on FB) and gain important performance experience!

ART for EDUCATION

For the past 25 years, Mayor Laura Hill and her family’s company, Downey Publishing, has been promoting culture in a wonderful way in the southwest. Downey Publishing publishes telephone directories in print, online and for mobile in 42 rural markets in Oklahoma, Arkansas and Texas for over 12,000 customers. Through their ‘Art for

Education’ program they have donated $715,000 to local students and schools. Hill says, “Most of our clients are small mom-and-pop businesses, the backbone of our American economy. Our directories are part of the community they serve. Small town rural residents tend to shop local and many of

the businesses have operated for generations. Our customers are the heart and soul of their communities.” It’s hard to imagine in 2015 but much of the country is still that, country. In these counties (such as Clarksville, Russellville, Muskogee, Wagoner & Texarkana), most of the businesses

Starting in 2005, Downey Publishing began cover art contests for students in each of those counties.

They receive thousands of aspiring artists’ “work” every year. Their only request is that the art have some significance to their community. Not only do the students win but also the art program at their school.

The Art for Education contest is held annually in each market and is in its 8th year. The art work that does not win is used throughout the directory in different spots. Local newspapers publish the winner, and it’s a source of community pride. You can see all of the current winning covers and a full list of the directories they publish at www.downeypublishing.com.

“The Antonius” Violin

southlake ARTS


MUSIC

Chamber Class This (left) is a Stradivarius violin, a priceless instrument made by Antonio Stradivari during his “Golden Period”. Andrés Segovia called the violin the “King” of the string family, and unfortunately most of our school districts don’t include that family into their program yet. But they are working on it. Budgets, facilities and salaries all create barriers to integrating the string family into the public school system. So if your young Einstein loves to play a string instrument (piano and guitar are also ‘stringed’ instruments), where can you get ensemble experience? While we wait for an appropriate venue, I propose an after school Chamber Class for young string players! There will be two groups divided by age K-6 and 7-12. Arrangements will be modified to fit the instrumentation of the class. Score selections will be standard classical repertoire as well as contemporary, pop, film and even video game scores. Hall Music Productions is taking it upon themselves to organize an after school Chamber Class to be hosted at the Starwood Studios at 630 E Southlake Blvd. Auditions will be held in late August for Violin, Viola, Cello, Guitar, Bass, Piano, Woodwinds, and Brass. Contact david@southlakearts.com for more details.

About “The Antonius” Violin MAKER: Antonio Stradivari (1644–1737) DATE: 1711 GEOGRAPHY: Cremona, Italy CULTURE: Italian (Cremona) MEDIUM: Maple, spruce, ebony DIMENSIONS: Label: 20.3 x 58.4cm (8 x 23in.) CLASSIFICATION: Chordophone-Lute-bowedunfretted CREDIT LINE: Bequest of Annie Bolton Matthews Bryant, 1933 Antonio Stradivari has long been thought to have been an apprentice of Nicolò Amati, but census documents do not list Stradivari as a garzone (shopboy) in the Amati household. Stradivari’s early instruments do show the stylistic influence of the Amati, but as Girolamo II and Nicolò were the principal makers in Cremona during Stradivari’s formative years, it would be natural for Stradivari to have been influenced by their work. Antonio Stradivari worked with two of his sons, Francesco (1671-1743) and Omobono (1679-1742), and today over 600 instruments survive from this prodigious workshop. Stradivari experimented with the shape and arching of the violin. By 1700, he abandoned this pattern and reverted to the broader shape that was typical of his earlier violins. These violins are sometimes referred to as “grand pattern” violins, but he actually made use of several large forms that varied slightly in dimensions and proportions. Stradivari employed flatter arching than his predecessors, and this contributed to the production of a more powerful tone. During the period from about 1700 to 1720, Stradivari produced many of his finest violins and this is known as his “Golden Period.”

BOTTICELLI to

BRAQUE An international loan exhibition from one of the world’s finest collections, “Botticelli to Braque” will showcase 55 paintings ranging in date from the Renaissance to the 20th century.

The Kimbell is hosting the major international loan exhibition Botticelli to Braque: Masterpieces from the National Galleries of Scotland, a selection of 55 paintings from Scotland’s premier art collections - the Scottish National Gallery, the Scottish National Portrait Gallery and the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art. This magnificent combination of masterworks from the three distinct museums is displayed right here in Fort Worth for you to visit. It is a collection of some of the best-known and well-loved European paintings spanning over 400 years, from the Renaissance to the modern age. “The exhibition, drawn from one of the world’s finest collections of European art, will offer visitors the chance to discover new works by painters already represented in the Kimbell’s own collection - artists like El Greco, Watteau and Monet,” said Kimbell director Eric M. Lee. “Equally important is the opportunity to encounter rarely seen masterpieces by Botticelli and Vermeer, among the best-loved painters in history.”

BOTTICELLI to

BRAQUE Botticelli to Braque features a variety of artists, periods and styles, though each work is marked by its exceptional quality. Earliest paintings are of primarily religious and mythological subjects, and the exhibition concludes with works of abstract visual vocabularies from the early 20th century: Piet Mondrian’s Composition with Double Line and Yellow, 1932, and geometrically conceptualized Cubist still lifes by Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso. “The painting that best represents the celebratory spirit of this exhibition is the famous ‘Skating Minister,’” said Kimbell deputy director George Shackelford. “Sir Henry Raeburn, Scotland’s greatest painter, completed the portrait of Reverend Robert Walker Skating on Duddingston Loch at the very end of the 18th century, around 1795. The Reverend is posed in profile - in ‘mid-skate’ and the image of freedom and confidence has come to symbolize the Scottish Enlightenment.”

PAINTING

Among the highlights of the exhibition are several paintings celebrating the Scottish landscape and its great citizens. Raeburn is represented in the exhibition by three portraits; in addition to the Reverend Walker, there are two full-length portraits of tartan-clad Scottish grandees. Among the portraits selected for the exhibition, which come from all the galleries, are many that are linked to British history and culture. The Flemish painter Sir Antony van Dyck, closely allied with King Charles I, painted the monarch’s daughters, who were the greatgranddaughters of Mary, Queen of Scots, as babies in 1637. The three Waldegrave sisters, Lady Charlotte Maria, Lady Elizabeth Laura and Lady Anna Horatia Waldegrave, were painted by the English painter Sir Joshua Reynolds at the request of the young women’s uncle, the

A little more than a century later, the American-born painter John Singer Sargent painted an extraordinary likeness of Gertrude, the wife of Sir Andrew Noel Agnew, 9th Baron of Lochnaw and a lawyer with political ambitions who came from an old Scottish family. Exhibited at the Royal Academy in London, the portrait was much admired; it brought Sargent his reputation for elegant, sophisticated portraiture and established Lady Agnew’s status as a beauty and hostess.

MUSIC

Classical Masters Festival The Music of Beethoven, Haydn and Mozart

In the first of a three-year cycle, Music Director Miguel Harth-Bedoya and the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra celebrate three titans of symphonic repertoire exploring compositions by Ludwig van Beethoven, Joseph Haydn, and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. “In Beethoven, Mozart, and Haydn we have the trifecta of classical composers who gave us the great music of their time,” states Harth-Bedoya. “A three-year cycle allows us the opportunity to dive into works both familiar and less-familiar. For 2015, we wanted to program some works that we could explore newly together as orchestra and audience, such as Haydn’s ‘Deserted Island’ Overture and the Oxford Symphony, while also revisiting some gems of the symphonic form.”

AUGUST 29, 2015 Violinist David Coucheron makes his FWSO debut performing Mozart’s “Turkish” Violin Concerto. Beethoven’s Symphony No. 2 and Haydn’s impassioned Overture to L’isola disabitata are also on the program. Steven Lin will give a short recital performance starting at 6:30 PM.

The Festival Concerts:

AUGUST 30, 2015 Beethoven’s ever-popular Leonore Overture No. 3 opens the final concert, followed by Gustavo Miranda-Bernales performing Haydn’s Piano Concerto No. 11. Mozart’s brilliant “Jupiter” Symphony closes the Festival. David Coucheron will give a short recital performance starting at 1:00 PM.

AUGUST 28, 2015 2013 Cliburn competitor Steven Lin returns to Fort Worth to perform Beethoven’s Piano Concer to No. 1. Also on the program are Mozar t’s Over ture to The Magic Flute and Haydn’s “Oxford” Symphony. Pianist Gustavo Miranda-Bernales will give a short recital performance starting at 6:30 PM.

Performances are Friday, August 28, 2015 and Saturday, August 29, 2015 at 7:30 PM, and Sunday, August 30, 2015 at 2:00 PM. All concerts take place at Bass Performance Hall.

David Gappa’s Crystal Mist is a new commissioned piece that was created to transform what could be seen as a typical commercial lobby into a reflective space that allows visitors to appreciate glass art in a whole new light. With each intricate detail that comes to life in this chandelier, it shows Gappa and his team’s commitment to the piece. He and his team spent two months bringing this masterpiece to fruition. It is composed of a total of 245 spheres, 230 spires and 65 bowls and weighs in at 600 pounds! The 6-foot-in-diameter-by-14-foot-tall chandelier is featured in the Condo Lobby of Tapestry at Brentwood Town Center in Brentwood, Tennessee. The chandelier cascades from the ceiling and is the ultimate feature piece for the modern space. “A special thanks to Interior Designer, Stephanie Moore Hager, for working hand-in-hand with me to create this incredible sea of cascading glass.” - David Gappa

”...when Modern sleeps with Industrial and they fall in love.”

he piece started with Kenneth Crain’s trip to Griffin Trading in the design distric t. Operated by Stephen Hansrote, Griffin is a great place to find things you never knew you were looking for. Stephen had just acquired the shutters from a dealer in the south, who in the years following Hurricane Katrina, had discovered some interesting finds sifting through salvaged architecturals. Kenneth says, “Stephen called me one day and said ‘Kenneth, you have to see these things, they are huge! I have no idea what to do with them, but they are right up your alley.’ I seem to have built a reputation here in the Design District for working with oversized stuff. The shutters sat in my studio for almost a year before I decided to make them into a

propositions. Given the weight, I designed 6-foot-tall steel supports with an elegant sweep toward the back, cut out of half-inch steel plate. I then carried the same radius to a gentle sweep on the side rails to give it some continuity. The bed itself is rectangular steel, capped on both sides with reclaimed beams. Much attention was given to the footboard, a solid 16-inch 150-year-old reclaimed timber from an historic building in the stockyards of Fort Worth, Texas. The finished headboard is 112 inches wide and stands 86 inches tall. The bed extends 106 inches from the wall, and the 16-inch beam at the foot of the bed is 90 inches long. Together, the bed weighs approximately 1,300 lbs.”

Arco Verdes by Nelly Cuanalo

southlake ARTS


Beautiful Cit� Since starting Southlake Arts almost 2 years ago, I’ve been surrounded by some very talented photographers - Brian Guilliaux, Bruce Rosenstiel, Carolyn Taluja, and Jesika Cook, to name a few - and now Nelly Cuanalo. Through knowing these folks I’ve come to appreciate how you frame a photograph, to create a composition with its placement and vantage point, and that you create a rhythm and beauty to a photograph. So I had a fun idea to challenge photographers to capture different parts of the city and surrounding area in a beautiful way, and I’m happy to say we’ve begun the project! For example if you were to just look at the power lines on 1709 limiting the growth of the trees and blocking our view of the sky it might not be such a pretty view, but with the right angle and concept you can create something really special!

ALL OF US ARE PROUD TO BE CELEBRATING OUR FIRST 125 YEARS.

Take this month’s photo, Arco Verdes (Green Arches). There is a lot happening in this photo that Nelly created by finding just the right angle. She is shooting from under the walkway and framing the distance with a pretty arch and the photo feels deep because of the perspective created by the lampposts. Also, there is a beautiful rhythm that she captured. Beat 1 - The arch from the sky Beat 2 - The two windows on the left Beat 3 - The three windows on the right Then there is a faint echo of 1, 2, 3 with the yellow and red lines. Beautiful!

The Bauru sandwich originated in Sao Paulo, Brazil 80-some-odd years ago. And when I say simple I mean simple: meat, cheese, pickle, and tomato on a roll. Of course we put our own spin on it! We take a french baguette and gut the crumb. The bread is toasted with an aioli. For filling we use either a roast pork loin or pulled pork

depending on our mood. (The filling can change from vendor to vendor in Brazil.) We melt a healthy layer of creamy mozzarella over the filling. The cheese is lathered in olive oil and Italian seasonings. Over the oil go slices of kosher dill pickle and beefsteak tomato. We also add a side of Giardiniera pepper relish to give the sandwich a kick! Biting into the sandwich with the crusted bread, the creamy cheese, and the savory filling, the simple sandwich explodes with flavor. Come get the Bauru at Weinberger’s Deli.

ANAKOTA

​ 010 Helena Montana Vineyard 2 Cabernet Sauvignon COMPOSITION: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon APPELLATION: Knights Valley ELEVATION: 950 feet ALCOHOL: 14.2% AGING: 15 months, French oak barrels Montana is a “noble red” from Knights Valley in rural Sonoma County, which is located in an ancient volcanic zone, a relatively untouched and unknown place that offers incredibly unique and diverse soils with the perfect climate for Bordeaux varietals. The juice is sourced from an estate-owned vineyard, and Anakota wines are a collection of single vineyard, single varietals created by Pierre Seillan. After moving to California in 1998 and working the vineyards of Sonoma County, Pierre saw something unique and special in Knights Valley. He became inspired and had a vision to craft a single expression of Cabernet Sauvignon from this single appellation. The Montana Cabernet hails from the Helena Montana Vineyard which runs northeast to southwest on the eastern side of scenic Highway 128. The vineyard offers ever-changing topography, including rolling hills and steep benches. A pure mountain stream and rocky ridge separate this vineyard from another Anakota vineyard, Helena Dakota. Rated a 95 by Robert Parker, this cab has flavors of dark fruit, candied cherries, smoke, spice and muscular tannins. Both the wine and the vineyard should be on your list when you visit Bob’s or Kirby’s, or when you visit the valley!
