T1-1.jpgMary Barr Rhodes
Blissful Mozart  

Multimedia on violin  
23”H x 8¼”W x 9”D

Inspiration Concert:
Mozart, Clarinet Concerto in A Major, K. 622
Julian Bliss, clarinet
Karen May, bagpipes
Tomas Lozano, Hurdy Gurdy


This concert puts Mozart’s music in context with his time and peers—both friends and rivals. The gallery thought this concert conjured up a splintered or fractured feeling, which brought to mind Mary’s multimedia work premised on the wabi-sabi philosophy of acknowledging breakage and transience as part of a greater beauty.
Mary immediately fastened on the word “tension” and pointed out it is the tension between dark and light, colors and textures that makes art, just as the tension between the composers of Mozart’s time were part of the environment that bore his greatness.
Mary’s piece manifests contrast and tension through her use of strong elements on the delicate violin that she visually divided into light and dark halves. She includes her signature medium of broken glass along with a wire and metal sculptural element evoking Mozart’s whimsical and wild persona in the fray of contrasts. A clarinet emerges from the creative struggle, signifying its “blissful” resolution.


Mary’s established career has journeyed from realism to her renowned dimensional abstractions extravagantly incorporating brilliant metal, glass and resin media in soulfully messaged works all based upon the unification of fractured and disparate media that summates a more beautiful reality. Mary immediately fastened on the spirit of this concert, identifying the “tension” between fracture and unification as elemental to the continuum of creativity.

T2-1.jpgCarin and Robert Hebenstreit
Fanny and Felix

Oil and acrylic medium transfer on assemblage of violins
22”H x 11½”W x 5”D


Inspiration Concert:
Hidden Genius
August 10
Featuring
Fanny Mendelsshon Hensel, Overture in C Major
Felix Mendelsshon, “Italian” Symphony
Silver-Garburg Piano Duo



Carin and Bob and their children, sculptor John and painter Marlena, have influenced each other and our city to great effect. John’s work includes the “Black Brigade” in Smale Park and he currently is finishing a sculpture of Ezzard Charles as the centerpiece to Laurel Park. Marlena just completed a twelve-part series on the spiritual world of Martin Luther King, Jr. and is currently working on a children’s book. Bob has been a beloved teacher of art and its fundamentals for decades and is one of the region’s most esteemed plein air painters. Carin is a sought-after portraitist: two of her well-known works are on permanent display at Music Hall—Max Rudolph and Paavo Jarvi.
With such genius (thankfully not hidden) in their own family, we knew Carin and Bob were the match for this concert. Carin’s portraiture is known for revealing the subjects’ relationships, and here she masterfully juxtaposes Felix’s engaging gaze with Fanny’s demurrer so that, despite her averted eyes and placement under Felix, Fanny somehow commands our attention. A true lover of classical music, Bob researched the composers and sourced antique Mendelssohn sheet music to reproduce and transfer on the smaller violin.
The assemblage of these two violins of course repeats the theme of familial influence, individuality and unity.


Carin’s renowned commission work includes the portraits of Paavo Jarvi and Max Rudolf at Music Hall and Bob is one of our region’s “Deans” of plein air painting. In addition to their art, they created a family of artists: son John is the sculptor commissioned for the bronze statue of Ezzard Charles, the centerpiece of its namesake’s west-end park; and, daughter Marlena is a frequently exhibited artist who recently completed a series on the life of Martin Luther King Jr.

T3-1.jpgEvan Hildebrandt
Visions of da Vinci

Multimedia on cello
37”H x 15”W x 5”D


Inspiration Concert:
Visions of da Vinci
August 3
Featuring
Zivkovic, da Vinci’s Hidden music in “The Last Supper”
Nebojsa Jovan Zivkovic, percussion and composition
Liquid Video Solutions, visual artists


This concert commemorates the 500th anniversary of innovator and artist Leonardo da Vinci’s life and death. Eckart fittingly has curated a concert that includes cutting-edge immersive visual technology and a bold contemporary composition decoding The Last Supper painting in sound.
Evan’s art shares this innovative duality of unconventionality grounded in wisdom. Evan uses artmaking as a means by which to understand the world. He attacks a topic with research and thought, then uses diverse and unexpected media to create his conclusions. The gallery was aware of Evan’s previous exploration of da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man and immediately saw a pairing with this concert.
Here, Evan incorporates literal “visions” of da Vinci, embedding passages from the master’s sketchbooks in Evan’s signature resin layers and organic forms.
The centerpieces front and back refer to da Vinci’s famous squaring-of-the-circle algorithm based on Euclidian geometry and the golden ratio, which he found repeated in the proportions of the human body—shown in the Vitruvian Man diagram on the cello’s front. And another variation of this golden ratio is the “sacred geometry” of infinitely converging circles overlapping at their center points, which pattern and proportions occur repeatedly in nature—called the Vesica Piscis, da Vinci’s diagram of this pattern is on the cello’s back.


Evan Hildebrandt was paired with this concert because his work explores the science of the natural world through dramatic abstracts. Evan is also known for his use of contemporary media, ranging from repurposed construction products to rare imported pigments. Evan’s fine art is not limited to traditional grounds, rather he pulls it off the wall onto furniture and other practical applications in the interest of creating an environment.

T4-1.jpgLarry Brown / Tina Gutierrez
Fandango

Archival pigment print collage on classical guitar
20½”H x 14½”W x 2”D

Inspiration Concert:
España
August 17
Featuring
Celedonio Romero, Concierto de Málaga
Pepe Romero, guitar
Arleen Hurtado, flamenco dancer
Gabriel Osuna, palmas


This star-crossed artist/concert match was hampered only by the logistics of incorporating a violin, as initially assumed. That’s where luthier Larry Brown’s expertise came in. Larry pointed out that the classical guitar’s construction ironically featured a surface and detail appropriate to ground the intended photography. Larry painstakingly deconstructed a classical guitar and prepared the interior to frame Tina’s work. The guitar’s interior detail became an inspiration: Tina sliced and reassembled the image to repeat the toothed structural support. Larry encased the final photographic collage in protective acrylic.
In this image, Tina positioned Cincinnati Ballet’s principal ballerina, Melissa Gelfin, to enliven the shimmering pleated fabric and capture the ecstasy of motion, of dance, of a fandango with crackling castanets and frenetic strings, like the compositions of one of the concert’s featured composers, Luigi Boccherini.

Tina’s impeccable fine art studio and underwater photography combines her study of classical art with an immediate relevance that pulls the viewer into a timeless experience. She has an innate understanding of the human form, its movement and how to express it through photographic composition. She is a favorite commercial photographer among performing artists; you no doubt have seen headshots and promos that she has photographed. In addition to her visual artistry, Tina is degreed in classical guitar and is a well-known lutenist. Larry is a master luthier, known internationally for his early music reproductions, frequently relying on period artworks to design instruments otherwise lost to time.

T5-1.jpgAlison Shepard
Summermusik 

Oil on violin
23”H x 8¼”W x 1½”D


Inspiration Concert:
The Summermusik Festival
“The known, the unknown and the unexpected”
– Eckart Preu, Music Director


Alison’s violin evokes idyllic summers, with nature and music coming together in the symbolic Hummingbird, roses and golden embellishment. The Hummingbird is a totem of joy…and hums! The roses are symbolic of beauty, balance and associated with godliness and high endeavors…and are traditionally given or thrown in response to superlative performances. 
Alison is well-known for her soulful realism, particularly her oil paintings of flowers and birds.
In making this piece she channeled Klimt’s style of mixing less formed and gaudy passages with tight, realistic passages; thus, a vining silhouette of rose leaves and scatterings of metallic gold suggestive of sunbeams bind the realistic elements together into a harmonious piece both familiar and exotic, earthy and luxurious—like Summermusik!


Alison is known for her figurative work, bold florals and delicate wildlife depictions. Alison’s creations are keyed to an appreciation of natural cycles exemplified both in the exuberant beauty of her summer flowers and in her inspired embrace of the Shackleton Antarctic exploration, reckoning with the perils and possibilities of extreme winter.
