Cheryl Calleri, a multi-media Santa Cruz artist, has worked in print making, collage, assemblage, sculpture, and most recently, video installation to imaginatively give visual form to inspirations from science. Her work has been represented by galleries in southern and northern California and over the past few years she has exhibited in several California museums.
Thekla Hammond is a Bay Area painter who over the past 20 years has collaborated with a Boston painter, a cellist from New England, a composer in southern California, local vocalists and dancers to create multiple exhibitions that invite audiences to “see” through several senses. With Cheryl Calleri, she has used video installation to construct ever more immersive experiences.
Nancy Karp, artistic director and principal choreographer for the San Francisco based company Nancy Karp + Dancers, founded in 1980, has toured throughout the U.S. and internationally, including extended artist residencies in Germany, India and Japan. She has created a body of work that is rooted in the exploration of the architectonics of space through pattern, rhythm, and form.
Gioia and Sine Nomine are East Bay a cappella vocal groups focusing on early sacred music, madrigals, Renaissance songs and contemporary pieces both sacred and secular. The groups combine for this performance of contemporary composer Morten Lauridsen’s O Nata Lux and O Magnum Mysterium.
