Home is where the Art is

In this month’s edition of Previews Inside Out, we sat down with 3 artists of different crafts to talk about art and about home.

Art is Life. And life happens at home. So, one can infer that art happens at home, too. In this month’s edition of Previews® Inside Out, we sat down with 3 artists of different crafts to talk about art and about home.

Music. Every home has a unique melody. The sharp staccato of the alarm clock each weekday morning. The sweet tune of chatter over the dinner table. The unwavering rhythm of a routine established over years. We sat down with Marin Alsop, the history-making maestra and only woman at the podium of one of the nation’s top 20 symphony orchestras to talk music and home. In the article “Life In Concert,”Alsop shares what she sees as the most inspiring musical cities, as well as her favorite place to conduct. Perhaps the most interesting reveal is where Alsop finds her inspiration. For all her travels, her muse is awfully close to home.

Sculpture. Sculptor Elizabeth Turk’s world is not one of black and white. Like her bi-coastal lifestyle, she lives somewhere between both, in shades of gray. This idea of paradox also manifests itself in her latest show titled “Tensions,” which she believes is “about the tension inherent in human temperament and nature itself.” In the article “Sculptor Elizabeth Turk’s Shades of Gray,” Turk shares how she draws on nature to “recalibrate her soul,” and why sometimes she wishes she could turn off her inspiration.

Architecture. Architects can be viewed as sculptors in their own right, molding a physical structure to fit the needs and desires of its inhabitants. To delve further into this art form, we referenced architect Michael G. Imber, best known for his Southwestern & Mexican architectural influence. In the piece “Proud Heritage: Conversation with Architect Michael G. Imber,” he speaks about his personal design preferences & inspiration sources, as well as the foundation of historical architectural styles found in his home of San Antonio.
