565 Pearl St.
La Jolla, 92037

25 paintings from start to finish in the gallery in one week? We look forward to seeing how this goes.When Matt Beard told us what he wanted to do we thought two things: he’s bonkers, and he’s even more  bonkers than we thought… but were game to let me take a swing at it in our brand new gallery/headquarters in La Jolla, CA.

During one frantic week in the new gallery he will be painting ten 30″ x 30″, five 20″ x 20″, and ten 10″ x 10″ original paintings. There will be tacos, donuts, beers, drums, friends, enemies, skateboards, and possibly even parakeets.**  Stop in during the course of the week to check out the work in progress, or just wait to see them all finished at the opening reception on March 25 …times and more details coming real soon.

Anthony Burr Plays Feldmann

 

The show includes Charles Curtis on cello,  Erik Carson and Keir GoGwilt on violin and Caterina Longi on viola.

Fresh off a sabbatical that took him to Reykjavik, Berlin, Brisbane and Melbourne, ace clarinetist Anthony Burr of the music faculty performs a program centered on Morton Feldman’s Clarinet and String Quartet—which he recently released on a CD. He will be joined by violinists Erik Carlson and Keir GoGwilt, violist Caterina Longhi and cellist Charles Curtis. Curtis performed on the recording. The concert program also includes Aldo Clementi’s Impromptu for Clarinet and String Quartet, which, like the Feldman, is a late work of the composer that reflects nineteenth century chamber music in an inscrutable and mysterious way.
