MINI MUSIC: The Mimir Chamber Music Festival gets going next week on the TCU campus. Guest artists will hold master classes throughout the week and then recitals will be given at night. One of the big name musicians coming to town is cellist Brant Taylor, who plays with the Chicago Symphony and has helped organize the event since 1997. And he says that playing in smaller ensembles is really his first love. “There’s something about the intimacy of it, the interpersonal interaction not only on the stage but also in the rehearsal process,” he tells dfw.com.
BEHIND THE SCENES: In a little less than two weeks, the Amon Carter Museum of American Art will open “The Allure of Paper: Watercolors and Drawings from the Collection.” The show is pretty much what it sounds like, featuring 100 works from the museum’s holdings. A new post on the museum’s blog follows exhibition designer Trang Nguyen as she imagines the look of the show.
RETHINKING THE FIGURE: The Nasher Sculpture Center’s current exhibition, “Statuesque,” brings together six artists who are interested in reconsidering figurative sculpture. Among the artists is Thomas Houseago, who discusses his work in the newest episode of Art This Week.
