Violinist Stefan Jackiw is recognized as one of his generation’s most significant artists, captivating audiences with playing that combines poetry and purity with an impeccable technique. Hailed for playing of “uncommon musical substance” that is “striking for its intelligence and sensitivity” (Boston Globe), Jackiw has appeared as soloist with the Boston, Chicago, Cleveland, New York, Philadelphia, and San Francisco symphony orchestras, among others.

Conrad TaoPianist Conrad Tao has appeared worldwide as a pianist and composer and has been dubbed a musician of “probing intellect and open-hearted vision” by the New York Times, a “thoughtful and mature composer” by NPR, and “ferociously talented” by TimeOut New York. In June of 2011, the White House Commission on Presidential Scholars and the Department of Education named Tao a Presidential Scholar in the Arts, and the National Foundation for Advancement in the Arts awarded him a YoungArts gold medal in music. Later that year, Tao was named a Gilmore Young Artist, an honor awarded every two years highlighting the most promising American pianists of the new generation. In May of 2012, he was awarded the prestigious Avery Fisher Career Grant.

Gt. Barrington, MA–ARTIST TALK: SHE SAID, HE SAID @ Bard College @ Simon's Rock--Daniel Arts Center
Jan 28 @ 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm

an artist slide talk and reception with Boston artist Kathy King and New York artist Matt Nolen.

King and Nolen’s ceramics exhibition titled SHE SAID, HE SAID opens January 28, 2019 and will be on view daily until March 8, 2019 in the Hillman-Jackson Gallery, located in the Daniel Arts Center.

SHE SAID, HE SAID focuses on narratives embedded in the medium of ceramics, by artists Kathy King and Matt Nolen, friends and colleagues for over 20 years. King’s cameo-like wall reliefs allude to traditional jewelry and portraiture, combining ceramic and metalwork in sculpture resembling woodcut prints. Each piece presents a tongue-in-cheek vignette exploring histories of gender and sexuality, using humor and pop references as entry points into broader topics such as love and life as a woman. Similar to King, Nolen’s figures reshape traditional art historical canons, combining aesthetics of classical busts and antiquated vases with dreamlike prints. The work explores fluctuations between psychological dichotomies such as frailty and resilience, failure and triumph in convoluted compositions representing the perpetually transitioning internal landscapes of the self. For both artists, narrative lies at the core of their practice, told with the physical and historical properties of ceramics, and forms the crossroads where their work intersects.

This talk is free and open to the public.
