String quartet brings TSO quality to Academy

A few of their favorite things -- that's what the musicians of Tucson-based Kingfisher Quartet are bringing along when it returns to Academy Village Tuesday for a 7 p.m. concert at the Arizona Senior Academy.

Patrons are likely to share the tastes of these four musicians -- Benjamin Nisbet and Ellen Chamberlain, violins; Emma Votapek, viola; and Anne Gratz, cello.

With a program of Mozart, Turina, Mendelssohn, Tchaikovsky and Coleman, patrons are in for a treat.

All four players are members of the Tucson Symphony Orchestra. They got together to form a quartet back in 2008, with the goal of collaborating with other arts organizations and being dedicated to standard quartet literature and contemporary works, such as the Coleman "Lullaby" on their Academy Village program, which comes from his second string quartet.

There's something from the 18th century to the 21st on the bill, including light classicism, buoyant classicism and Spanish impressionism to the evening. And any program that features Tchaikovsky Quartet No. 1, with its lovely, moving and melancholy andante, is just about a must.

The concert will honor Academy members and nonmembers who have contributed financial support and time to the nonprofit organization in 2013.

Lecture focus on women artists in UA art museum

Carolyn Rivers, a docent at the University of Arizona Museum of Art, will present a lecture, "Celebrating Women Artists," at 3:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Rivers will introduce early artists such as Marietta Tintoretto, a Venetian painter, whose oil painting, "Head of a Bearded Man" (1580-1590), is part of the UAMA permanent collection.

Also considered is the French artist Elisabeth Vigee-LeBrun, one of the most technically fluent portraitists of the 18th century. The UAMA owns her portrait "The Countess von Schonfeld With Her Daughter."

Later artists to be discussed are three Americans: Lilla Cabot Perry, an Impressionist who was influenced by Claude Monet; Dorothea Tanning, whose early work was influenced by Surrealism; and Georgia O'Keeffe, whose American landscapes and still lifes have become iconic.

Among contemporary artists considered in Rivers' lecture is Audrey Flack, an American known for her pioneering contributions to Photorealist painting. …
