Les Yeux du Monde will feature for its final show of 2017, Dean Dass, one of the most important mainstays of the gallery since its inception 23 years ago. Dass, an influential professor of printmaking at the University of Virginia since 1985 is well known regionally, nationally and internationally for his handmade books, unique prints and sublime oil paintings. His work has been exhibited throughout the United States and abroad and has been the recipient of countless prestigious awards and fellowships.
For this show, Dass will exhibit new oil paintings of rivers and birds that employ centuries old painting techniques and innovative prints that alchemically combine homemade papers with pigments, inkjet, gold leaf and more. Throughout the seemingly diverse media his works wield a strange and subtle power. Subjects range from slices of untamed nature and massive cloud forms to vulnerable creatures of the earth—humans, birds, fawns, bears. His empathetic renderings conjure awe, mystery and meditation about our relation to our fellow creatures, nature, time and the cosmos.
The opening is on Friday, November 17 from 5 – 7 p.m. The gallery will also have for sale at special prices some of Dean Dass’s outtakes and rarities that he unearthed for his summer Studio Moving Sale for Small Business Saturday, November 25, and throughout Thanksgiving weekend. There will be a lunch with the artist on Wednesday, December 6 (reservations required, $15). The gallery is located at 841 Wolf Trap Road in Charlottesville. Hours are Thursday through Sunday 1 – 5 and by appointment. Call 434-882-2620 or 434-973-5566 for more information or visit our website at LYDM.co.http://LYDM.co

Follow the evolution of Celtic culture in Stepping Out, a high-energy extravaganza of sights and sounds presented by Dublin Irish Dance. These accomplished Irish step-dancers and musicians take the audience on a journey, exploring the history of the Celtic cultural experience through song and dance. This entertaining production reveals the influences that have shaped Irish music and dance throughout recent history: from the farms of rural Ireland in the 1800s to the Great Famine and the resulting mass migration to New York, where Irish and American cultures blended and influenced each other. Many of the artists in this ensemble have performed with popular acts like Riverdance, Michael Flatley’s Lord of the Dance, and Celtic Woman. With the lightening-fast footwork of the step-dancers, the spirited melodies of an eight-member traditional Irish band, and the lovely sounds of their Irish vocalist, this performance is sure to amaze.http://hyltoncenter.org/calendar/988/

Beethoven: Violin Concerto in D major, Op. 61
Beethoven: Symphony No. 3, Op. 55 “Eroica”

The HSO has performed at many prominent European venues, including three recent sold-out performances at the Great Festival Hall in Salzburg and in Vienna.
