ARTIST’S STATEMENT

Gail Ragains compares her style of painting to the improvisations of a jazz musician. She begins each paintings with a strong foundation of color and abstracts it in the subsequent layers of paint. She considers herself an extremely physical and expressive painter. She states, “The more I can move and dance around the canvas, the more connected I am to the painting.” Her use of bold, gestural brushstrokes and colors puts her work In line with the history of Abstract Expressionism. Yet her depiction of the human body evokes the style and subject of the Bay Area Figurative Movement.

ABOUT

Gail Ragains lives and works out of Redwood City, near San Francisco. She has exhibited her work in multiple solo shows throughout the Bay Area and group shows in California, Boston, and Canada. In 2012, San Francisco Magazine featured her as one of the “Eight Artists to Watch.”

Artist Talk & Closing Reception:
Sunday, August 20th, 2017

The Compound Gallery is pleased to present a solo show by KRK Ryden. KRK Ryden’s art is a record of mongrel pop culture. His aesthetic is informed by comic books, punk rock, and cartoons, while his world view is strictly DEVO. KRK’s work embraces everyday absurdity and a cartoony view of reality. His paintings are colorful and visually appealing reflections on discarded icons, and his graphics are well-realized snapshots of cartoon life. For over thirty years KRK has been creating illustrations and paintings for underground bands, publishers, and institutions.

KRK has done work for the band DEVO. He illustrated DEVO’s Brainwasher Magazine and did the cover art for the band’s Recombo DNA release. He appears annually at the band’s “DEVOtionals” held in Cleveland, Ohio. The day before each DEVOtional, KRK holds a solo art show at the Asterisk Gallery. He did a two-man show with DEVO frontman Mark Mothersbaugh called “Dos Mutatos”; notable guests included Weird Al Yankovic and Jihad Jerry.

“When you’re a Jet, you’re a Jet all the way . . .” In West Side Story, the gang’s all here: the Jets and their neighborhood nemesis the Sharks in the back alleys of late-fifties NYC. They’re finger-snappin’ tough and rowdy—JDs down to their white Ts and leather. And, sure, the beatings are backed by beats composed by Leonard Bernstein, and when they rumble, the stompin’ is to the so-cool choreography of Jerome Robbins. But the West Side is the domain of youth struggling with a “social disease” that’s part poverty, part parents, and part passion. West Side Story is the dizzying rush of youth that knows no bounds.

Sanborn Drive and Joaquin Miller Road

In Oakland

Woodminster Summer Musicals' 51st season continues in August 2017 with South Pacific, the grand 1949 Rogers and Hammerstein adaptation of James Michener’s Tales of the South Pacific.  Richard Rogers and Oscar Hammerstein, already hugely successful with Carousel and Oklahoma, set out to write a popular musical that would also send a strong progressive message about racism. They succeeded so well that this vastly entertaining show still has an important and relevant message more than 60 years later.  South Pacific has a compelling plot, likable characters, and most of all, some of the most glorious songs in musical theater history, including “Bali Ha’i,” “Some Enchanted Evening,” “Younger Than Springtime,” “You’ve Got To Be Carefully Taught,” and many more.  Join us in August for this beautiful classic love story with a still-timely message.

This live musical is performed outdoors in historic Woodminster Amphitheater in Oakland’s beautiful Joaquin Miller Park by a large cast and live professional orchestra. Come early and enjoy a stroll along hillside trails, the views of the bay and cities below, and a picnic with your family.

Performances August 4, 5, 6, 10, 11, 12, 13. Check website for tickets and ticket promos and discounts. (Oakland residents, show your ID for half price tickets on opening night!)

The spectacular, one-of-a-kind musical Passing Strange was developed and premiered at Berkeley Repertory Theatre and went on to be a Broadway hit, winning multiple awards including a Tony. Spike Lee captured the show on film, retaining its energy while also taking us behind the scenes. The semi-autobiographical story of a young black man's coming of age was conceived and composed by rock musician Stew, who narrates and directs the show. Hilton Als wrote of the musical, "Passing Strange is a brilliant work about migration—a geographical migration but also its hero’s migration beyond the tenets of 'blackness' and toward selfhood." For Roger Ebert, “This is not a traditional feature, but it's one of Spike Lee's best films."

Did you know our glorious 50th issue is due August 29th? That's right, FIFTY! We've pulled all the stops for this one, including can’t-miss new work from writers who we’ve long published — Jonathan Lethem, Lydia Davis, Sherman Alexie, Etgar Keret, Sheila Heti, Diane Williams, Sarah Vowell, John Hodgman, Steven Millhauser (among many others) — and fantastic new writing from authors who we’ve long admired, including Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Thomas McGuane, Kevin Young, and Carrie Brownstein. OKAY, we’ve said enough, now to why we're really here....

It's a party! There will be drinks (by Fort Point Beer Company) and mingling and happy moments to share. If we figure out the sound system, there may even be music. (Group meditation is cool, though, right?)

Voices of Music: Leonardo da Vinci: A Musical Odyssey

Sunday, March 4th, 2018, 7:30pm

St. Mary Magdalen
2005 Berryman

In Berkeley

Voices of Music presents “Leonardo da Vinci: A Musical Odyssey," which explores the music that Leonardo da Vinci would have heard in the cities in which he lived. There is no surviving music that Leonardo da Vinci played or composed, but through the writing of Giorgio Vasari and contemporaneous accounts we know that Leonardo was an acclaimed virtuoso on the lira da braccio, a type of bowed string instrument, and that he loved to accompany himself as he sang improvised poetry. Proficiency in music was highly valued in his time alongside the study of art and architecture. Da Vinci’s life coincides with a burst of activity in music, including the invention of music printing by Ottaviano Petrucci in Venice as well as the patronage in the 1480s of Lorenzo de’ Medici in Florence. Our research for this project includes a variety of musical forms, including frottole, sung poetry, music from the Medici and Sforza courts, the circle of Isabella d’Este, and the Parisian chansons from da Vinci’s final years in France. Join us for our story which will take you on a journey through Leonardo’s musical world, illustrating the synergy between science and art along the way.

Featuring Lawrence Rosenwald, poet and story teller; Stefanie True, soprano; Deborah Rentz-Moore mezzo soprano; Shira Kammen, lira da braccio and many others.
