The Four Hornsmen of the Apocalypse to perform at SFA

The Stephen F. Austin State University College of Fine Arts and School of Music will present The Four Hornsmen of the Apocalypse in concert at 2:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 6, in Cole Concert Hall on the SFA campus.

For more than 15 years, The Four Hornsmen of the Apocalypse have captivated and excited audiences with their musicianship, technique and comical repartee, according to Charles Gavin, professor of horn and chamber music at SFA. Over the years, The Hornsmen have performed throughout the United States for audiences at the symphony, college campuses, horn workshops, churches, arts festivals, public schools and other venues.

The Hornsmen not only entertain, but also educate. They have been called upon to teach masterclasses to students of all ages, present educational outreach programs in schools, and perform side-by-side with students and other world class performers across the country, Gavin said.

“They pride themselves in their ability to connect with the audience and break the traditional barrier between the musicians and the listener,” he said.

The Four Hornsmen of the Apocalypse will perform at 2:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 6, in Cole Concert Hall on the SFA campus.

The group features Paul Blackstone, who is pursuing a Doctorate of Musical Arts degree in horn from the University of Texas; Audrey Good, second horn of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra; Tony Licata, a founding member of the Four Hornsmen and stationed at Fort Hood, Texas, where he performs with 1st Cavalry Division Band; and Gerald “Gerry” Wood, a freelance musician and private instructor in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

Cole Concert Hall is located in the Tom and Peggy Wright Music Building, 2210 Alumni Drive.

Eugenia Zukerman & Friends to open upcoming University Series at SFA

The Stephen F. Austin State University College of Fine Arts’ 2014-2014 University Series “Connect” opens with a performance by Eugenia Zukerman & Friends at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 11, in W.M. Turner Auditorium on the SFA campus.

Join flutist Eugenia Zukerman & Friends for a night of enchanting chamber music at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 11, in W.M. Turner Auditorium on the SFA campus in the opening performance of the College of Fine Arts’ 2014-2015 University Series, “Connect.”

“This is our first show of the new season,” said John W. Goodall, associate dean of the College of Fine Arts, “and we think it is a great way to begin what promises to be another exciting and diverse series of quality fine arts performances.”

Joining renowned flutist Zukerman are friends and fellow musicians Milana Strezeva on piano, Sophie Shao on cello and Hye-Jin Kim on violin in a new collaborative performance.

Often described as a Renaissance woman, Zukerman not only maintains an international concert calendar with more than 30 performances annually, her multi-faceted career also includes distinguished work as an arts administrator, author, educator, Internet entrepreneur and journalist, according to Goodall.

“She has performed as soloist with many of the world’s finest orchestras,” he said.

Zukerman’s numerous guest appearances have included engagements with the Tokyo Philharmonic, the Royal Philharmonic, the China Philharmonic and the Israel, Moscow, Prague and Scottish chamber orchestras, among others. Among the more than 80 orchestras in North America with which she has performed are the Los Angeles Philharmonic, National Symphony in Washington, D.C., the Montreal and Vancouver symphonies and the National Symphony Orchestra of Mexico.

Recognized with an Emmy nomination as an important broadcast journalist, Zukerman interviewed and created more than 300 portraits as an arts correspondent for CBS Sunday Morning. The author of the New York Public Library’s Award-winning non-fiction book “In My Mother’s Closet,” and also “Coping with Prednisone” (which she co-authored with her sister, Dr. Julie R. Ingelfinger), she has enjoyed success in the humanities as well as the arts. She is an adjunct faculty member at New York University’s Steinhardt School of Music and a frequent guest teacher at conservatories nationwide.

Moldovan-American pianist Strezeva is a founding member of the Manhattan Piano Trio. She is the daughter of renowned soprano Svetlana Strezeva, and the two have given recitals across the U.S., Europe and Asia.

Cellist Shao, a Houston native, has performed with orchestras across the nation and is a frequent guest at leading music festivals. She is on the faculty of Vassar College and the Bard Conservatory of Music.

Violinist Kim, winner of the 2009 Concert Artists Guild International Competition, has appeared in major venues across North America, Europe and Asia and performed at the U.N. Headquarters in both Geneva and New York.

Prior to the concert, there will be a 7 p.m. informative talk about the artists and their music to be presented by Dr. Christina Guenther, associate professor of flute at SFA, in Griffith Gallery located across the hall from Turner Auditorium. 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, Cataract, Glaucoma & Retina Consultants of East Texas/Benchmark Optical.

Griffith Gallery and Turner Auditorium are located in the Griffith Fine Arts Building, 2222 Alumni Drive.

Tickets range from $20 to $40, with discounts available for seniors, SFA faculty/staff, students and youth. For tickets or more information, visit www.finearts.sfasu.edu or call (936) 468-6406 or (888) 240-ARTS.

Exhibitions to showcase talents of SFA art professors

The installation “Napoleon’s Wallpaper” by SFA School of Art faculty Candace Hicks is like a room-sized book telling a story while presenting a puzzle. This installation along with the “SFA Faculty Exhibition” opens at 6 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 11, at The Cole Art Center @ The Old Opera House in downtown Nacogdoches.

Recently created art in a variety of media will make up the annual “SFA Faculty Exhibition,” which the Stephen F. Austin State University College of Fine Arts and School of Art will open with a reception from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 11, at The Cole Art Center @ The Old Opera House in downtown Nacogdoches.

The annual faculty exhibition in the Ledbetter Gallery will feature photography, paintings, metal work, ceramics and sculpture, according to John Handley, director of galleries at SFA.

“SFA is fortunate to have such a talented group of working artists creating in such a wide array of styles and media,” Handley said. “This exhibition is our annual chance to show off and highlight our talented artists.”

Also opening at the same time is the featured exhibition of Candace Hicks, assistant professor of drawing and advertising design at SFA. In the installation “Napoleon’s Wallpaper,” Hicks uses Reavley Gallery as “a puzzle box to be opened by the viewer,” she said.

Operating like a game, Hicks’ exhibition uses a combination of prints that reveal secret messages when viewed through special colored glasses. Kinetic sculptures reveal clues, and wall texts guide the viewer from station to station.

“I am using my background as a book artist to produce an exhibition of objects that look like art but are actually part of an interrelated narrative book,” she said. “Books take for granted that the viewer participation is necessary to complete the work, and ‘Napoleon’s Wallpaper’ combines a storybook, interactive puzzle and art exhibition into a room-sized installation. The viewer experiences the immersive quality of reading a mystery novel and solving the clues.”

The title, ‘Napoleon’s Wallpaper,’ refers to an anecdote regarding the cause of Napoleon’s death in which some have said he died from contact with arsenic in the dye he used to print his wallpaper, Hicks said. An expanded version of the exhibition will be presented in November at Post-Studio Projects in Houston.

Both exhibitions will run through Oct. 18.

The Cole Art Center is located at 329 E. Main St. Regular gallery hours are from 12:30 to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday.

All art exhibitions are free and open to the public. They are sponsored in part by the SFA Friends of the Visual Arts and the Nacogdoches Junior Forum.

For additional information, call (936) 468-1131.
