Artist Talk - Dorothy Anderson Wasserman's exhibition "The Carnival of the Animals"
Artist Dorothy Anderson Wasserman will be hosting an artist talk on 10/13 from 2-3pm. Wasserman's relief sculpture suite, “The Carnival of the Animals,” is inspired by Camille Saint-Saens’ 1886 musical composition of the same name. Written when Saint-Saens was on a vacation in Vienna, the piece shows a playful, light-spirited side to this composer who was considered one of the most important figures in French 19th century culture. As a humorous musical suite in fourteen movements, Wasserman’s work continues this playful sensibility, portraying the characters with sophisticated whimsy and an old fashioned aesthetic.
Artist Talk: 10/13 & 10/15 2-3pm
SLOWBURN Dance Performance: 10/15 5-6pm
Artist Reception: 10/22 2-4pm
In essence, The Carnival of the Animals is a pairing of choreographer’s styles with the music of Saint-Saens via sculptural “performers” dressed in animal costumes. This exhibition will be on display at Gallery 110 from October 6 – 29, 2022. The gallery is open to the public from 12PM to 5PM on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays and by appointment. Or stop by during the Pioneer Square First Thursday Art Walk on October 6 from 4-8PM.
