Reception at Quent Cordair Fine Art

Guests will enjoy a private wine reception at Quent Cordair Fine Art while taking in the gallery's impressive collection of contemporary Romantic Realism artwork. Master sculptor Martin Eichinger will be on hand to discuss his work, and cellist Thomas Shoebotham will fill the space with art-inspired music.

Martin Eichinger's bronze sculptures can be found in over 700 private and corporate collections. He is a professional member of the National Sculpture Society and has won numerous competitions and awards for his bronze sculptures. Most notably, he has received the C. Perceival Dietsch award for "Best Sculpture in the Round," a Kellogg Internship and a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. In addition, Eichinger and his bronze Circus Series were guests of Prince Rainier of Monaco at Festival International du Cirque.

Thomas Shoebotham has a highly varied musical career that includes opera and orchestral conducting, cello and piano performance, and public and private teaching. He is currently Music Director of the Palo Alto Philharmonic. He has conducted performances for many San Francisco area groups, including Opera San José (Les Pêcheurs de Perles), Peninsula Symphony, the San Francisco Concerto Orchestra, and Berkeley Opera (OtelloBéatrice et BénédictLe Nozze di FigaroCarmenCosí fan Tutte, and L'italiana in Algeri). As a cellist, he has appeared recently as a soloist with the Oakland Civic Orchestra, in recital in Palo Alto, and in chamber music performances with Trio Jubilee in Los Gatos, Burlingame, and Palo Alto.
