Every time I think I’m finished with this month’s Fellows Notes page, it expands, as if creative atoms are supercolliding to create an ever-expanding art universe!
Or something like that. Anyway, it’s great to know our contemporary art scene is more Big Bang than Big Crunch. Here are some of the recent additions:
Tonight (Fri. 9/12), Scott Wheeler (Music Composition Fellow ’05) is among the performers participating in National Anthem, a classical music concert to benefit one of the presidential candidates (you can probably guess which; you know, the artier one). Speaking of Scott, later this month, he’ll conduct Dinosaur Annex for the Boston premiere of his piece The Gold Standard, as part of the Ditson Festival of Contemporary Music, Sept 18-21. Richard Cornell’s (Music Composition Fellow ’07) Tracer, a collaboration with visual artist Deborah Cornell, will also be performed at the festival, by Boston Musica Viva.
This weekend, Ariel Gonzalez Cohen and Kellie Ann Lynch (Choreography Fellows ’08) aka slippery fish dance will develop/present The 24 Hour Dance at the Northampton Center for the Arts. Next weekend (Sept. 20), Nell Breyer (Choreography Fellow ’06) and Alissa Cardone, Lorraine Chapman, and Bronwen MacArthur (Choreography Finalists ’08) will present A Media/Movement Collaboration at the Baryshnikov Arts Center in New York City.
Just as an exhibition of drawings by Colleen Kiely (Painting Fellow ’98) is finishing up (Sept. 28) at the Museum of Fine Arts, Florida State University at Tallahassee, Lydia Kann Nettler’s (Drawing Finalist ’00) Circling: An Environmental Exhibition will be newly on display (opens Sept. 22) at the Wheelock College Towne Art Gallery. Meanwhile, Nina Wishnok (Drawing Fellow ’06) exhibits in Field Report, a members’ exhibition of the Boston Printmakers at Brickbottom Gallery in Somerville, through October 18.
