Mozart's Requiem

The Music Center at Strathmore

The poignant Ave 
Verum 
Corpus 
has been described as virtually perfect in conception and execution. The brilliant motet Exsulate 
Jubilate for soprano and orchestra is one of Mozart’s earliest and most popular works due to its soaring virtuosic “Alleluia” refrain. The evening concludes with Mozart’s final work, the magnificent Requiem, which still moves audiences as much today as it did more than two hundred years ago.

Classical Musical Instruments as Art

Washington Convention Center

Washington, DC artist J. Thomas Wells will exhibit his new, found object assemblage works at the Washington Craft Show, booth 304, at the Washington Convention Center, October 31 through November 2. The featured work of this exhibit uses salvaged classical musical instrument parts, which he incorporates into intricate, three-dimensional wall sculptures.

A native of Washingon, DC, Wells works his craft at his studio in the Jackson Art Center, a former DC public school building on R Street, NW.  Wells’ collecting of and fascination with found objects evolved into assembly more than two decades ago. Rather than forcing the objects into pre-conceived literal forms, he allows diverse objects to develop interrelationships with one another, forming compositions that transcend predictability. The artist asserts that “No instruments were destroyed in this process. I salvage damaged items from instrument repair shops in and around DC and Baltimore."

The Washington Craft Show will be Wells’ 13th show of his assemblage, including two solo shows, since 2000. He was selected into the Maryland State Art Council’s Critic's Residency Program in 2003 and was juried into the Torpedo Factory Art Center in Alexandria in 2004.

Fine Impressions: Whistler, Freer, and Venice

Freer Gallery of Art and Arthur M. Sackler Gallery, Smithsonian Institution

In 1887, Charles Lang Freer purchased the entire Second Venice Set, 26 atmospheric etchings by James McNeill Whistler. This marked the beginning of a long and fruitful partnership between collector and artist, which eventually led to the founding of the Freer Gallery, today the world’s largest and finest repository of Whistler’s works. Fine Impressions shows how Freer’s acquisition of the Second Venice Set came to shape his legacy as a connoisseur and collector.

These seasoned regulars play Dixieland/New Orleans-style jazz and kick off their set around 7:30 p.m. All other days (Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday) music begins at 8 p.m. and goes to about 10 p.m. With a range in musical styles, there's surely something on our calendar for anyone who enjoys music. Besides jazz, we also feature folk, rock, blues, pop, experimental, country, bluegrass, and more! As always, the live music we offer is free (but tips are encouraged for the artists). "Come on out to St. Elmo's and enjoy a relaxing evening with coffee, great food, music, and friends. A night out at St. Elmo's gives you the opportunity to support local business and local/national musicians, and it is a less expensive alternative to a night at the bar." - Charity Meals from the Arlington Coffee Shop Examiner.

Neo-Impressionism and the Dream of Realities: Painting, Poetry, Music

The Phillips Collection

Around 1890, Neo-Impressionist painters including Georges Seurat, Paul Signac, and Theo van Rysselberghe created pictures that accentuate subjectivity and an inner world of experience, approaches they shared with their contemporaries, Symbolist painters, writers, and composers in Paris and Brussels. This focus was different from Neo-Impressionism's beginnings in 1886, when the movement was hailed as an alternative to Impressionism, offering a fresh opportunity to focus on light and contemporary life. With more than 70 paintings and works on paper this exhibition demonstrates how the Neo-Impressionists employed stylization and a deliberate orchestration of color to create landscapes and figures that went far beyond observed nature.
