Art Talk at the MGMA – Today:
Creativity Across Disciplines; A conversation with composer/arranger, Gregg Moore, watercolorist, Alan Sanborn and playwright, Lauren Wilson
Sunday, January 4, 2015 at 2 p.m.
At the Morris Graves Museum of Art, 636 F Street, Eureka
Gregg Moore’s creative impulses have always taken a musical form. Growing up in Humboldt Co. music was the family business and during a subsequent 30 years living and working in the seething cauldron of vibrant creativity that is western Europe he found his specialty in merging sound with other disciplines – dance, theater, film and the visual arts. In Amsterdam, Holland he was a founder of the eclectic music ensemble, Available Jelly’, after 35 years still one of the leading Dutch music ensembles. During 10 years in Portugal, he was responsible for the introduction of Street Bands to that venerable cultural landscape. Back in California, he has been responsible for ‘Music for the General’, a concert of music played to the action of the Buster Keaton masterpiece, music for various productions by Dell Arte, Flying Karamazov Bros. and HSU Theater Dept. His quirky sense of composition is evident in the music of his current performing ensemble, SquarPeg as well as his community music initiative, Bandemonium, which is often found animating open-air events.
Alan Sanborn is most recognized locally for his watercolors and our local Farmer’s Market posters. Sanborn, Working Artist in Watercolor, has been represented nationally in twenty different galleries, from 1986 to present. Sanborn has worked as an instructor of watercolor, drawing and illustration for College of the Redwoods, Humboldt State University, and currently the Ink People. He also served as a founding member of The Ink People Center for the Arts, as a panelist for the California Arts Council and Victor Jacoby Art Award grant.
Lauren Wilson, Associate Artistic Director of Dell’Arte International, is a playwright, actor, director and teacher. Her physical theater training began at the Circus School of Brussels, in 1991. A graduate of Reed College and the Dell’Arte International School of Physical Theater,
she began writing and performing with the Dell’Arte Company in 1995. Lauren received an M.F.A. in Theatre from Sarah Lawrence College in 2007, and a 2008 Dramatists Guild Fellowship in playwriting.
