VISION: AN ARTIST’S PERSPECTIVE
Artists reception: July 16, 2016, 4:30 – 7 p.m. with Artists' talks at 5pm. Free and open to the public.
Exhibition dates: July 5 – 30, 2016,
Envision, conceive of, imagine . . . In this turbulent time of political changes, women’s rights, social, racial, gender and economic inequality, global conflicts, cultural instability, reproductive choice/health care issues, and environmental challenges of overconsumption and resource scarcity – how do we effect positive change through art? How do we listen, speak our minds, include, and act in collaboration or alone across generational differences, races, identities and cultures, to build our future, locally and globally?
VISION seeks to bring self-identified women artists into dialogue, retracing an account of the past manifesting in the present, to address major social themes, to define and bring forth what is important to themselves, their families, their communities, our nation and the world at large with art that either reflects on past injustices or focuses on a vision for a more positive, empowering future.
Gutfreund Cornett Art and UniteWomen.org ask self-identified women artists to respond to and take an active role in this conversation, to create an exhibition in all mediums and genres, art that ranges from literal to poetic, abstract to representational, and psychological, to social and political commentary, art that represents the prismatic, collective vision for our future, that inspires communities and provides a framework for true innovation in our time.

A Tribute to Olivier Messiaen and "The Quartet for the End of Time.”
“Quartet” new paintings by Barron Storey
On January 15, 1941 French composer Olivier Messiaen premiered his seminal work “Quartet for the End of Time” within the confines of Stalag VIII-A, a Nazi prisoner-of-war camp in Silesian Germany. The ensemble (clarinet, violin, cello, and piano) played upon broken instruments in front of an audience comprised of his fellow prisoners and prison guards in the brutal cold.
Opening on February 5th, 75 years after this premiere performance, Anno Domini Gallery presents a Messiaen-inspired exhibition of new paintings by renown artist Barron Storey entitled “Quartet” and live performances entitled “End of Time” by Cellista (Freya Seeburger) and her Juxtapositions Chamber Ensemble.
“Messiaen’s 'Quartet for the End of Time' has always moved me. The composer’s concepts of musical structure have influenced my own music for many years. It was, then, a delightful surprise to hear of Freya Seeburger performing the piece and an amazing example of synchronicity to be invited to accompany the performance with my artwork. The Quartet is not just an admired masterpiece to me, it is my favorite string quartet in classical repertoire, one that consistently brings me to tears. The pure beauty and the profound contrasts, hearing the songs of birds as the composer notated them in the cold forest adjacent to a Nazi concentration camp, the crashing fury of the sixth and seventh movements and the spiritual elevation of the final violin in the eighth, ascending to an eternity beyond time…this is music for the soul, written by a daring, innovative and fearless man of genius, composed and premiered by captive musicians before an audience of prisoners. Come listen!” ~ Barron Storey
This presentation at Anno Domini is a small immersive theater event building on Cellista’s work in storytelling and interweaves San Jose’s narrative into a piece, showing the immediacy of the Quartet to San Jose’s past, present and future. Performing the Quartet is the Juxtapositions Chamber Ensemble: violinist Ishtar Hernandez, cellist Freya Seeburger (Cellista), clarinetist James Pytko and pianist Naomi Stine. Barron Storey will also be in attendance at the performances drawing insitu on his metamorphic temporary mural dedicated to Messiaen and his fellow prisoners of war.
