October 20….Deana Carter in Concert with Full Band -
Drenched in sun-kissed natural beauty both inside and out, Deana Carter didn’t take a seemingly easy route to stardom, but instead chose to defy the conventional expectations of the typical Nashville artist blueprint and make her own mark. And she did, undeniably taking the industry and fans by storm with her wildly successful multi-platinum international debut Did I Shave My Legs For This? more than a decade ago. Anchored by the dreamy super hit ” Strawberry Wine” , Carter showcased her own blend of country and retro-rock sprinkled with the folksy singer/songwriter qualities that have garnered Deana Carter well-deserved respect and wild acclaim. Today, as she readies her latest bundle of uniquely crafted tunes for upcoming release on Southern Way of Life, Carter explores many subjects commonly shared over a quaint dinner, afternoon coffee or a sunny day hike with a good friend.The songs weave through the sometimes rocky terrain of adulthood, including loss of love, relationships on many different levels, trials, tribulations and simply put – life. Instinctively autobiographical, the subject matter mimics the interesting ride of Carter’s own life – so far. Tickets for Deana Carter, live at the Cactus Theater, are on sale now. Reserved seats; floor, first 5 rows $30; remaining floor $25; standard balcony $20. Purchase by visiting cactustheater.com or call 762-3233. Cactus Theater, 1812 Buddy Holly Ave; Doors open at 6:30; show at 7:30 pm..


October 21….TTU Presidential Lecture & Performance Series presents Art Spiegelman - The TTU Presidential Lecture and Performance Series welcomes Pulitzer Prize-winning artist and illustrator, Art Spiegelman.

You can also do that with language." LHUCA Graffiti Educational Building, 511 Avenue. K. Event held 7 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.

October 21….The MTV Generation: ‘80s Rock Vault, Vol 1 - Rock 'n' roll entered the television mainstream in late 1981 with the launch of the all-music video channel MTV...short, of course, for "Music Television". The cable channel quickly became the hottest marketing platform in the history of popular music...and made stars out of unknown bands virtually overnight. It also helped broaden the appeal of radio stars who could then more effectively market their IMAGE - literally and figuratively - to an audience of consumers ready and waiting for this new multi-media concept.
Unknowns became hot-selling stars....previously popular radio stars became video superstars...and some, like Michael Jackson, went global on a scale like no one before or since. It was truly a cultural phenomenon that heralded a whole new era for the music industry and, even more significantly, pop CULTURE, as a whole. The glory years of MTV peaked in the late '80s....evolved and changed in the '90s....and the music video format eventually gave way to virtual reality shows and faded away from its original concept. Now, the Cactus looks back at that seminal moment in history - when unknowns like Billy Idol, Pat Benatar, Joan Jett, Bryan Adams, Survivor, The Stray Cats, Prince and scores more burst into stardom through the medium of Music Television. Join The Rhythm Machine - with vocalists Bethany Longoria, Shad Daughtery, Haley Simpson and Steven Shedd - for this time-trip back to the '80s - when video didn't kill the radio star....it just made them more accessible...like never before! You'll hear the biggest hits from the video era in this special live music production. Reserved floor seats $20; standard balcony seats $15, Purchase by visiting cactustheater.com or call 762-3233. Cactus Theater, 1812 Buddy Holly Ave; Doors open at 6:45; show at 7:30 pm.

Spotlight on the Arts:
Career of Italian Artist Ezio Gribaudo Celebrated in Upcoming Exhibit

Trained at the Accademia di Brera and as an architect, Turin-based artist Ezio Gribaudo brings to his visionary art a distinctive sense of chromatic precision and historical determination that derive from his work as a painter, sculptor, and graphic artist. His award-winning production has been recognized with various international prizes, among which the IX Rome Quadriennale in 1965, the XXXIII Venice Biennale Prize (for graphic arts) in 1966, and the São Paulo Biennial in 1967.

Gribaudo’s prolific production and diversified activities have given him a highly significant presence in contemporary Italian art. He worked with Francis Bacon, Giorgio de Chirico, Willem De Kooning, Marcel Duchamp, Peggy Guggenheim, Joan Miró, Henry Moore, the CoBrA Group with Pierre Alechinsky, Karel Appel, Jean-Michel Atlan, and Asger Jorn, to mention a few artists and personalities with whom he crossed paths. Through his committed activity as an art publisher, he mentored and promoted many of the most relevant figures in modern art since the 1950s.

His experimentations with materials and print bring to light archeological remnants in the context of intense chromatic studies. A specific line of his work is called logogrifi (a term of Greek origins evoking fishnets and objects that are caught in a specific moment in time). They can be understood as a verbal commentary that incorporates ancient texts, maps, and artifacts within the painting’s visual space.

These works are based on the engraving of white surfaces, resulting in dazzling white on white compositions that frame memories of daily objects in visual renderings reminiscent of Duchamp’s readymades. Giorgio de Chirico pointed out that Gribaudo’s work has elevated the use of white to a whole new conceptual level. Gribaudo has also perfected the use of paper as a philosophical concept whereby incisions and collages map the archeology of human and animal experience. His use of a manual press renews the function of an old and noble instrument, now incorporated with craft and ability in the artist’s daily practice.

An Upcoming Exhibit Showcases Career

The career and artwork of Ezio Gribaudo will be celebrated on October 29 from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm. The Lubbock art community is invited to celebrate this internationally acclaimed artist.
The event takes place at Timeless Art Gallery, 3501-50th St, Suite 112.
