Warhol exhibition to feature artist’s famous ‘Silver Clouds’

An exhibition of works by the late Andy Warhol will open with a reception from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 26, in The Cole Art Center @ The Old Opera House in downtown Nacogdoches.

The exhibition – Andy Warhol: Art Is Anything You Can Get Away With – will feature a small slice of the artist’s enormous oeuvre, in particular, his “Silver Clouds” – helium-filled silver clouds that drift in the air, according to John Handley, director of galleries at Stephen F. Austin State University.

According to information found at www.warhol.org, “‘Silver Clouds’ continually surprises viewers’ expectations and is the result of a collaboration between artist Andy Warhol and engineer Billy Klüver. Exhibited in 1966 at the Leo Castelli Gallery, ‘Silver Clouds’ created an ethereal, joyful atmosphere, and challenged traditional expectations of art by mingling with and touching the viewer. Klüver’s knowledge of technology helped bring Warhol’s vision to life. The engineer recalls that their original plan was to somehow make floating light bulbs, but that when his research group at Bell Labs showed Warhol a sample of the material scotchpak – a metalized plastic film made by 3M that could be heat-sealed – he is reported to have said, ‘Let’s make clouds.’ The clouds, filled with helium and oxygen, floated through the gallery on air currents, bumping into each other and into viewers in the space.”

“The premiere of ‘Silver Clouds’ at the Castelli Gallery was accompanied by Warhol’s now iconic wallpaper, in this case, his silkscreen pink cow heads on yellow background,” Handley said. “For the exhibition at the Cole, a portion of this original presentation will be recreated.”

The exhibition will also include three of his large screen prints and several of his Polaroid photos.

An American artist who was a leading figure in the pop art movement, Warhol’s works explore the relationship between artistic expression, celebrity culture and advertisement that flourished by the 1960s.

“To this day, Warhol’s influence on American art is studied and analyzed by art historians,” Handley said.

Warhol first worked as a commercial illustrator for magazine and other publications. He later became a renowned, often misunderstood and sometimes controversial artist, Handley said. He worked in many types of media, including drawing, painting, printmaking, photography, silkscreen, sculpture, film and music.

“His studio, know as The Factory, was a well-known gathering place that attracted both distinguished intellectuals and those on the fringe of society,” Handley explained.

This exhibition is made possible by the The Andy Warhol Museum, The Andy Warhol Foundation and Texas Christian University. It is sponsored in part by the SFA Friends of the Visual Arts, Nacogdoches Junior Forum and the Texas Commission on the Arts, which is the state affiliate the National Endowment of the Arts.

The Cole Art Center, SFA’s historic gallery, is located at 329 E. Main St. For more information, call (936) 468-1131.

SFA theatre students, faculty to participate in national Ghostlight Project

BE+A+LIGHTThe School of Theatre at Stephen F. Austin State University will join hundreds of other theatre communities across the nation – from Broadway to regional theaters to high schools and colleges and community theaters – on Thursday, Jan. 19, by participating in The Ghostlight Project.

Inspired by the tradition of leaving a “ghost light” on in a darkened theatre, artists and communities will make or renew a pledge to stand for and protect the values of inclusion, participation and compassion for everyone – regardless of race, class, religion, country of origin, immigration status, (dis)ability, gender identity or sexual orientation, according to information at theghostlightproject.com.

Gathering at 5:30 p.m. on and around the veranda of Griffith Fine Arts Building on the SFA campus, participants will join in a collective, simultaneous action, literally and figuratively bringing light to the darkness, according to Dr. Rick Jones, professor of theatre and interim director of the SFA School of Theatre.

Jones explains that, “This is about respecting and valuing those who are different from us in terms of demographic profile, but it’s also about extending that same concern for those who disagree with us philosophically or politically.

“As theatre people, we understand that you don’t have to be a monarchist to appreciate Racine, or a Communist to appreciate Brecht, or a Hindu to appreciate Kalidasa,” he said. “But sometimes it’s harder to translate that into our everyday lives.”

The public, especially but not exclusively members of the arts community, is invited to attend. Attendees should bring a light that can be readily turned on and off – a cell phone flashlight, regular flashlight, glow stick, etc. Promptly at 5:30, all will light their lights together in a show of solidarity, Jones said.

As of Jan. 13, 42 states had indicated on the project’s Facebook page that theatre communities within those states had partner groups planning to participate.

The national project aims to create brave spaces that will serve as lights in the coming years, and to activate a network of people across the country working to support vulnerable communities.

Visit theghostlightproject.com for more information. Locally, contact the School of Theatre at (936) 468-4003.

University Series performances offer world-class concert experiences

SeraphBrass3_Phtoto_Credit_Hali_RoseTwo back-to-back University Series performances at Stephen F. Austin State University will bring world-class professional brass and vocal ensembles to campus.

The College of Fine Arts presents the Seraph Brass Quintet on Tuesday, Jan. 24, followed by Olga Vocal Ensemble on Thursday, Feb. 2. Both performances are at 7:30 p.m. in W.M. Turner Auditorium on the SFA campus.

“Both of these groups will captivate audiences with their blend of classical and contemporary music,” said Scott Shattuck, associate dean of the College of Fine Arts and director of the University Series.

Seraph Brass presents a diverse body of work that includes original transcriptions, newly commissioned works and well-known classics. Members have performed with such acclaimed ensembles as the New York Philharmonic, San Francisco Symphony, the Philadelphia Orchestra, the National Symphony and the Royal Scottish National Orchestra. The performance is sponsored in part by Cataract, Glaucoma and Retina Specialists of East Texas/Benchmark Optical and Medical Arts Surgery Center.

Olga combines enthusiasm, humor and drama with genuine vocal clarity in their a cappella singing to captivate both young and old. The group’s repertoire covers more than five centuries of musical joy. The ensemble is known for its unique programs, in which moving classical music comes together with popular songs. The characteristic Olga sound blends the full range of this music into a compelling whole. This performance is sponsored in part by BancorpSouth.

Advertisements for the concerts currently running in The Daily Sentinel offer buy-one, get-one of equal value coupons, which makes an already reasonably priced concert experience even more affordable, Shattuck said.

“Take advantage of these coupons and bring along a friend to either concert, or both,” Shattuck suggested. “Each of these performances will feel like a warm embrace a cold winter night.”

Both groups will present master classes for SFA music students while they are on campus.

Prior to each performance, a member of the SFA School of Music faculty will present an informative talk about the music style at 7 p.m. in Griffith Gallery. The gallery is located across the hall from Turner Auditorium in the Griffith Fine Arts Building, 2222 Alumni Drive. The audience is invited back to the gallery for a post-performance reception to meet the performers and to honor the event’s corporate sponsor.

Single event ticket prices are $25 for adults, $20 for seniors and $10 for non-SFA students/youth. Tickets for SFA students are $3.

For tickets or more information, visit finearts.sfasu.edu, stop by the Box Office in Room 211 of the Griffith Fine Arts Building, or call (936) 468-6407 or (888) 240-ARTS.
