We gave thought to titling this issue ‘The Love’ issue, but we felt the cover made it self-evident. Thank you so much to those of you in the bubble that have given us back so much LOVE! Your phone calls, e-mails and hand-written letters that are so complimentary are just so encouraging and help to remind us the reason why we are creating an arts magazine for our happy little bubble. It’s because we truly LOVE this area and want to see it grow culturally. Thank you so much for taking the time to appreciate all of the talent and interesting stories that we continue to share with you. I am quick to correct anyone that tries to give me too much credit for how this beautiful magazine has turned out. We have an incredible team here that is not only talented but also, like me, LOVEs our bubble and wants to see it grow. We all owe a big thank-you to Jesika Cook (designing beautiful layouts and ads), Barbara Milhizer (writing and re-creating stories in record time), Lamberto Alvarez (artistic vision and illustrations), Brian Guilliaux (incredible photography), Wendy O’Hearn (dotting our i’s and crossing our t’s) and Nick Schaider (pulling it all together and making it a reality).

Event Pick Philip Glass has been described as one the most important living composers. On February 24th, Glass brings his gnawingly insistent arpeggios and floating melodies to Dallas for a rare performance at the AT&T Performing Arts Center. Joining Glass is violinist Tim Fain, one of the few soloists for whom Glass has composed material. Why? “Because he’s that good,” replies Glass. So, that makes two of them.

Muller Entertainment Opens Doors in Southlake Regional Film and TV production house to leverage DFW Northwest expansion to bring new entertainment projects to area. Muller Entertainment, formerly at the Studios at Las Colinas, has completed relocation of its corporate offices to Southlake, to continue its ongoing projects and pursue new opportunities tied to area’s economic growth and to position Southlake as an important hub for entertainment project development. Muller Entertainment recently oversaw the sale of The Studios at Las Colinas to Mercury Radio Arts, and has invested proceeds of sale in researching and selecting Southlake for its vibrant economic activity and unique location. Muller Entertainment oversaw the most productive period in the history of the Studios at Las Colinas, managing projects, including
the 4-year run of the internationally acclaimed 20th productions Prison Break, The Deep End and Lonesome Dove, and bringing new productions to the DFW metroplex, such as La Ley del Silencio, Eric Clapton’s Sessions for Robert J. and Saving Jessica Lynch. New projects in Muller Entertainment’s immediate horizon span include film production development, a reality TV series, artist and producer publicity services, and educational workshops for local area residents, under the auspices of its non-profit organization, the Muller Film & Television Education Foundation. Longer term projects include the launching of new international film and family entertainment festival in Southlake. “We have been overwhelmed by the positive reception and encouragement of all
local elected officials and executives we’ve met to help us produce an event that will position Southlake as a must-visit destination in Texas,” added Muller. “This, above all is the project that we are most excited about.” southlake ARTS

LOVE YOUR PIANO by Dave Conte, RPT, CCT
OWNING A PIANO IS MUCH LIKE OWNING A FINE CAR. CAREFUL, DILIGENT MAINTENANCE WILL ENSURE THAT EITHER ONE WILL PERFORM AT ITS BEST AND LAST LONGER.
Illustration by Lamberto™
HERE ARE SOME GUIDELINES to help you keep your piano healthy, so it can be enjoyed now and kept in good condition for future generations: REGULAR MAINTENANCE Tuning on a regular basis is the first step. Avoid the panic of finding a good technician on short notice (the best technicians stay booked well in advance), so your piano will always be at the ready for the unexpected presence of a player among your guests. Regular tuning also allows your technician the opportunity to see the piano consistently and detect small problems before they become big and costly. Top manufacturers officially recommend that a new piano be tuned four times in the first year and twice a year thereafter. Here in North Central Texas, this is very good advice. Consider that we have two extreme seasons here – sauna and dry tundra. In the summers,
with high humidity, pitch rises. The opposite is true in winter when we draw already dry air into our homes and dry it out even more through the furnace, causing the piano to dry out and drop in pitch. REGULATION OF PARTS Regulation of the action, dampers and pedals are also critical points of maintenance, but, most often, they are not taken seriously. The fact is that many piano owners believe that if the piano still makes a sound when the key is pressed, it is fine. If your piano has an inability to play softly, loss of tone or sounds less beautiful than it once did, regulation is the culprit. By this time, the function of the action parts is already out of operating specification, and wear and tear is increasing. The vitally important process of regulation compensates for the effects of settling, aging and use of the moving parts. This is akin to a
car needing periodic tune-ups, filter changes, new brakes, tires, shocks, and alignment. No sensible motorist would drive a car that was in so poor a state of maintenance as is often seen in pianos. Make sure you have a good technician that will keep you informed of the piano’s condition (some don’t). Ignoring problems does not make them not exist. Remember, pianos are not only a financial investment but an investment in the future - for both owner and music student - which, with proper care, may outlast even your home. REMEMBER, pianos are not only a financial investment but an investment in the future for both owner and music student - which, with proper care, may outlast even your home.
Dave Conte, RPT, CCT has a Piano Technology degree from the University of North Texas College of Music, certifications from various piano manufactures, and teaches at many institutes and seminars as well as Piano Technology at Tarrant County College, NE Campus. Dave Conte Piano Service provides Certified Concert and Artist piano tuning and preparation, recording/studio piano work, comprehensive action work and piano rebuilding services, and more.

Let’s Hear it for the Boy! D
FW Performing Arts Conservatory (PAC) presents Footloose at the MCL Grand Theater in Lewisville on February 16th at 2:00 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. A tale of teenage rebellion and redemption, this production features intensive choreography and vocal performances showcasing the hard work and immense talent of the student cast. When teenager Ren McCormack (played by Pierce Bailey) and his mother (played by Erica Harkins) move from the big city of Chicago to a small Midwestern town, he’s in for severe culture shock. Though he tries hard to fit in, the streetwise Ren can’t quite believe he’s living in a place where rock music and dancing are illegal, thanks to the Bible-thumping minister (played by Nathan Johnson). Ren falls for Ariel Moore (played by Suni Petty), a troubled but lovely female with a jealous boyfriend (played by Mason Dupuis). Ariel also happens to be the Reverend’s daughter. Not content to remain quiet, Ren and his classmates wage a battle to abolish the ban on dancing and rock music in order to host the senior prom. The Footloose creative team brings a trifecta of talent together. Director and native New Yorker Joe Trifiletti has been a professional actor and educator for over two decades. Recording artist and producer Stefani Little leads as Musical Director, lending her credibility as the foremost vocal instructor in the DFW area. Add to that the award-winning choreography of the much-sought-after Lisa Daly and the show will surely have you “cutting footloose”. Footloose will be performed at the MCL Grand Theater at 100 N. Charles Street in Lewisville on February 16th at 2:00 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. Tickets are $12 and can be purchased online at www.DFWPAC.com. southlake ARTS

Pieter Andries JEWELRY DESIGNER
IT’S FITTING that this issue, the “Love Issue”, has Pieter Andries for Arts Chat. Pieter’s love for this community rivals, if not surpasses, our own. He breaks the modern mold of doing business (which utilizes outsourcing and cheap labor) and brings us back to the old way - which is a vertical integrated system. That is to say everything is handmade one by one in his workshop off of 1709. Pieter travels the globe visiting South Africa, the Middle East, South America and Antwerp, Belgium to find the best loose diamonds and gemstones that are used in his creations at Pieter Andries, Creators of Fine Jewelry. The result is a superior product in fine jewelry that is unique and personal, something that you’ll treasure forever and pass on to your children. It was necessary for us at the magazine to break our typical interview mold for Pieter and go a little more in-depth, because he is so fun to talk to.

DH: How long have you been in Southlake? PA (with a Belgian accent): 31 years. So, but I started as a manufacturer selling to wholesaler and chain stores, but I decided to sell directly to the end consumer. That gives me more joy for many reasons. The joy is that I have the freedom to do creations that are unique. I have the joy to deliver to the customer where I do not only get a check but I also get a hug and a kiss! DH: Indeed! PA: It’s all about the customer, all about a relationship. Jewelry is something that will come in your lifetime. where it becomes important to treasure forever and to pass on to the next generation. And, therefore, the importance of it is to reflect your own personality, who you are. We have to respect that. Jewelry is not for everybody. There are plenty of people who will make it a priority to buy a boat, an airplane, five cars etc, etc, but somewhere, somehow in a lifetime, nice jewelry will come in place. Therefore, what I usually say, and I say this respectfully, I have patience, the reason why is that sooner or later, everyone wants jewelry! DH: (laughing) The truth is delightful! PA: Well it’s important for you to have something truthful for southlake ARTS
the article, isn’t it? And I’m saying things the way they are. Because you also have to know that by definition to be happy you don’t need jewelry. You don’t need an expensive timepiece, but thanks God! Everybody wants to have nice clothing, car, home, furniture, nice vacation - an expression of who you are. So jewelry, diamonds and gemstones are the beautiful expression of who you are and therefore jewelry should never be cheap. That doesn’t mean that we are expensive. That means we are not making cheap jewelry, but it is still attainable with certain levels of price that everybody can afford. But by definition it isn’t for everybody. But in a lifetime, not when you are born, you don’t need a 5-carat diamond when you are born. There’s a time and a lifespan. The beauty of being serious and doing this kind of business that I’m enjoying, which is why I’ll never retire, they’ll have to dig a hole for me to fall in one day. DH: A personalized expression? PA: Always focused on you, you the consumer, your personality. Ego and pride. Don’t forget there are a lot of men out there who still have to learn that their wife loves to have beautiful jewelry. But the wife has to understand that the jewelry is the extension of the pride of the man. You have to connect both. If you connect both, everyone wins. That’s why I often say there are only two requirements to come in my store. Number one, is love; number two, the ability to write a check, it’s that simple. The past is what has shaped me today, and who I am tomorrow is what I’m doing today but I’m enjoying sleeping well. I can go anywhere in Southlake or surrounding area with my super staff and I’ll have a customer incognito brings a bottle of wine, or dessert, and I have to say it’s a wonderful feeling. So, in a way, I have to start being more hidden, more low key. But if you’re there, you’re there, that’s another reason we have to do everything right. But it’s all about beauty, it’s all about right, it’s all about value lasting and
it’s love. In short, it’s love. It’s something you don’t need, but it’s something you want, and if it’s something you want, it better be good! (bold quote box) DH: Now, we get to the fun questions. PA: Go for it. DH: Who is your favorite jeweler in the entire world? PA: Who would be someone that I look upon? DH: Yes. PA: Hans Stern from Rio de Janeiro. He has been a mentor to me. They are still one of the largest independent jewelry stores in the world. They own about 175 stores worldwide and use the same vertical integrated system that we do. They have their own mines in Brazil, factories, manufacturing. They sell directly to the customer like we do. DH: If you weren’t a jeweler, what would you be? PA: An architect. DH: Favorite architect? PA: Frank Lloyd Wright. DH: What is your favorite detail about jewelry. The gems? Colors? Design? PA: Creating the perfect optical illusion by using the proper proportions of all the different components you use.
existence was in the Belgian Congo, a colony. As a child, we enjoyed making our own toys. There were no stores there. From childhood, I think I can say I always had an interest in creating things handson. I enjoy the intellectual values. I’m a blessed man. DH: Where do you get your inspiration? PA: Nature. I look outside here, at the tree there, and it is crooked as can be. And when you start pulling the different parts, it is a piece of art. Absolutely nature. One can never fool nature. Nature is always balanced; that’s why it’s beautiful. We don’t realize it but that’s the truth. Incorporate nature - say a man, a woman, a tree, the ocean, the mountains. But we, we are also nature. You have to be able to look through people. What I enjoy the most is reading people, if they don’t know what they want, I’m able to supply or give them on a plate and say, I think you will feel whole if you would wear this piece of jewelry. And 99%, if not 100%, I’m right, and the reward I get is enormous. But there are stubborn people out there that never want to learn from other people anyways; those are not those that I would spend time with, but that is a different story.
DH: W hat ’s one t hing people don’t k now about you? PA: What people don’t know about me? Oh my goodness. Maybe that I’m passionate about everything I do. I’m a big dreamer and I make things happen. DH: What piece of art would you like to own most? PA: A Frans Hals, Hans Memling or a Dali. I adore Dali. DH: Where are you happiest? PA: At work, here. DH: As a child, what did you want to be? PA: As a child, I was dreaming, since I was born in the first twelve years of my

DH: What is the biggest challenge you’ve overcome? PA: Dealing with people. No one in particular. I’ll tell you two things. When I came to America in 1981, I did visit Disneyland in California. I walked around there, met my wife there and I was in the Abraham Lincoln Auditorium. There were several plaques. One plaque read, ‘What is Freedom?’; the answer: ‘You can have as much freedom as you like in America as long as you don’t take the freedom away from your neighbor’. That comes from Lincoln and made me think. Then in 1982, I went to work for one year for an Entrepreneur Jeweler with about 1,000 employees and I managed the entire store. In his office, there was one plaque, huge office with five doors, always an escape. That one plaque, signed by David Rockefeller, that plaque said, ‘If you can teach me how to deal with people, I will give you my fortune!’
DH: Most beautiful place you’ve visited in the world? PA: Amalfi coast in Italy, Positano. There are so many beautiful places. Vienna is my favorite city. I love Paris. It’s a conjunction of the culture, restaurants, philosophy, nature. It always comes back to nature. DH: What are your travel essentials? What three things do you have to bring? PA: A life experience. That I was able to learn something from someone, and I was able to make a difference in someone’s life. DH: If you could have a meal with anyone, whom would it be with? PA: My wife, Marilyn. DH: Who is your style icon? PA: Hermès
PA: I’m not bringing anything! I was raised in a jungle; I want to be with nature! DH: What do you pray for? PA: Every morning when I swim, I pray directly to God and ask Him to lead me to someone where I can make a difference. Everything that keeps me going is that I can contribute to the well-being of someone else. Because I have everything, I’m there. I feel great! But I need to be content and in order to be content, the only [thing] is love. And love that only exists and maintain if you can give. And giving is the key of love. And a nice piece of jewelry that you don’t need, but because you love someone, you give something extraordinary, and that makes sense. If you see a happy person, you find they stay with nature, beauty and they give. Love, nature, beauty, give.

The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth and the Nasher Sculpture Center present David Bates

allas and Fort Worth come together to present a joint exhibition of the work of renowned local artist David Bates. The exhibition features a retrospective of Bates’ work, focusing on his sculpture and works on paper and will be installed in both locations. For more than 40 years, Bates has combined exquisite technique with American modernist traditions, resulting in a body of work that is at once sophisticated, soulful, and accessible. From his lush early paintings of the Arkansas nature conservancy Grassy Lake and the Texas Gulf Coast, to his reliefs, sculptures, and assemblages created in a variety of materials, to his most recent paintings depicting survivors of Hurricane Katrina, self-portraits and a return to still life, this exhibition provides an in-depth look at
the work of a unique and significant American artist. This exhibition includes approximately 45 paintings on view in Fort Worth, and 45 sculptures and 20 related paintings and drawings on view in Dallas. Although mostly known for his paintings, Bates’ achievement in sculpture are equally significant. Carved, assembled, modeled, or cast, painted or patinated, Bates’ sculptures range from rough-hewn to smoothly formed, powerfully muscular to fragile and dainty. Bates was born in 1952 in Dallas, Texas, where he lives and works today. He studied art at Southern Methodist University and participated in the Independent Study Program sponsored by the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, where he experimented with a wide range of styles.
He has been the focus of many solo museum and gallery exhibitions and numerous group exhibitions across the United States. His work is prominently collected by museums and individuals including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art, and Whitney Museum of American Art - New York, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, The Museum of Fine Arts - Houston, the Dallas Museum of Art, and The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. The exhibition runs February 9th through May 11th. More information can be found by visiting: www.THEMODERN.org www.NASHERSCULPTURECENTER.org southlake ARTS

Fearsome warriors clad head-to-toe in highlydecorated armor, samurai of 12th- through 19th-century Japan symbolized the power, honor and valor of the country’s military elite. Led by omnipotent warlords, called shoguns, samurai have long fascinated the public. To provide insight into their military prowess and lifestyle, as well as the artistry of their elaborate armor, helmets and accoutrements of warfare, the Kimbell Art Museum will host Samurai: Armor from the Ann and Gabriel Barbier-Mueller Collection. The exhibition showcases more than 140 works from The Ann & Gabriel Barbier-Mueller Museum: The Samurai Collection of Dallas, Texas, one of the finest private holdings of samurai armor in the world. Among the works featured will be 18 full suits of armor, including one formerly owned by the Yoshiki branch of the Mori ˉ clan, a prominent family whose origins date to the 12th century. Special highlights of the exhibition will include three life-size horses clad in armor, illustrating the pageantry of samurai and their mounts in battle or procession, and an impressive array of beautifully detailed helmets and masks. It will be the first traveling exhibition displayed in the Kimbell’s new Renzo Piano Pavilion, and admission is free on February 16th, opening day. “This stunning display of exquisitely ornate and wonderfully forbidding armor re-creates the world of the samurai and brings the viewer face-to-face with the legendary warriors,” commented Eric M. Lee, director of the Kimbell Art Museum. “This is the first traveling exhibition to be showcased in the Museum’s new Renzo Piano-designed galleries, and it will be perfectly complemented by the Kimbell’s own renowned collection of Asian art in the pavilion’s west gallery, located adjacent to the special-exhibition space.”

What’s Going to be Hot in 2014? “The return of inexpensive, high quality French wine to the American market. France has made fantastic wine for centuries but prices have recently sky-rocketed due to Asian markets buying it up. That has cooled off a bit and now you are seeing great French wines and approachable prices making their way back to the USA. That’s excellent news, only the Asian markets now have their eyes firmly set on Napa Valley.... Try our wine pick of the month in place of your heavier Pinot Noir pairings. Great with steak, pork, veal and even poultry with a heavier sauce. Salud, Gerald Morgan Jr. Sommelier www.BVTEXAS.com

Prost! Es ist gut! Julius Echter Hefe-Weissbier Würzburger Hofbräu
A German Hefeweizen beer by Würzburger Hofbräu - a brewery in Würzburg, Bavaria. The brewery was founded in the year 1643 and is therefore the oldest business still in existence in Würzburg today. Its medium body has tastes of good dry wheat, fruity yeast with notes of banana, dry spice, and a hint of barley grain. The hops add a light bitterness and some dryness to the rather snappy finish. This is defiantly a very solid and refreshing Hefeweizen! Find at -
