Expose Yourself! (to Art)

Beginning in February, the artists of Mistlin Gallery will be offering quarterly presentations of artists talking about their art. These lecture/discussions are open to the public and will be held at the gallery, 1015 J Street, Modesto, beginning at 7:00 pm. Admission is free. 

The first in this series will be held on February 7, 2019 and will feature David Schroeder, taking on the ever-controversial topic, The Art of Photography. Do photographers merely “press a button” or is there any actual art involved in the process? 

The presentation will be preceded at 6:30 by a short CCAA member meeting.

Expose Yourself to Art is an ongoing, quarterly presentation, free to the public. Next dates: May 2, Aug. 1, Nov. 7.

Grace Lieberman Cabaret

Beginning in March, CCAA/Mistlin Gallery will produce a series of fine art, cabaret concerts which will be offered quarterly. The proceeds from these events will be used to fund CCAA’s cooperative community endeavors with other arts groups, our education programs and for the development of a Grace Lieberman Young Artist scholarship fund. 

Grace was one of our community’s cultural treasures. She was not only a consummate musical and dramatic performer, having starred with all the major theater groups in the valley, but was also a major advocate for the arts in all forms.

Champagne and desserts will be included in the cost of admission. Ticket prices will be: VIP seating, $50 (Members, $40 only available at Mistlin Gallery), General Admission, $30, Students, $20. Tickets available at mistlingallery.eventbrite.com

The first cabaret concert is scheduled for Saturday, March 9, 2019 at 7:00 pm. featuring Karolina Syrovatkova, internationally known concert pianist, performing “Clara – The Woman in the Middle,” a dramatic musical creation in which she engages the audience as Clara Schumann, the 19th century pianist who was also the wife of Robert Schumann and the muse of Johannes Brahms. Karolina created this drama concert as part of her “Living With the Great Composers” series, an innovative way of experiencing classical music.

Future cabaret events include: “The Rat Pack in Review” featuring the dancers from Central West Ballet, choreographed by Rene Daveluy,   “The Passion of Flamenco,” featuring David Chapman on guitar, and the “Best of Broadway and Opera”, featuring Christine Capsuto.
