But how does a museum present a display of contact sheets in a way that will be interesting and not overwhelming? The exhibition design takes into account that tiny black-and-white images are only so compelling; seeing how they served as studies for the large-scale, boldly colored silkscreen paintings that Warhol is most famous for is fascinating. Cases containing contact sheets line the walls, while enlarged versions of the images serve as a pictorial frieze at baseboard level. Hung above the cases are the silkscreens, on loan from the Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, Penn. Most of these are portraits and are easily recognizable: Liza Minnelli, Jane Fonda, Michael Jackson, the glitterati of the 1970s and '80s. The free exhibition is open Wednesday through Monday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. (open Thursdays until 8 p.m.) at the Cantor Arts Center, 328 Lomita Drive, Stanford. Go to museum.stanford.edu.
The Rontgen Trio
Bay Area concert pianist Mark Anderson, Dutch violinist Antoine von Dongen and cellist Eric Gaenslen together form The Rontgen Trio, who will perform Piano Trio No. 1 in B major, Op. 8 by Johannes Brahms and the Piano Trio No. 6 in C-minor, Op. 50 by Julius Rontgen on Saturday, Oct. 13, at 7:30 p.m. at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Palo Alto, 505 East Charleston Road. The performance will be part of the Bodhi Tree concert series, which supports nonprofits. The 19th-century music of Rontgen (a contemporary and friend of Brahms) has only recently become widely known to the public, according to a press release. Anderson was the first to record much of Rontgen's piano compositions and co-founded the trio in 2017. Tickets to the Oct. 13 performance are $27 and all proceeds go to charity.
