Time Pieces is a new music and multi-disciplinary performance program performed by violinist Rebecca Fischer and visual artist Anthony
Hawley. The program grew out of new works for solo violin, commissioned by Hawley for Fischer on the occasion of her 40th birthday (composers Nico Muhly, Augusta Reed Thomas, Paola Prestini,
Lisa Bielawa, Gabriela Lena Frank, Pierre Jalbert, Rodney Lister, Byron Au Yong). It also features a new multi-media work with dance
and video projections produced by Hawley, performed by Fischer and
former UNL student Brittany Coudriet.

Rebecca Fischer, violinist in the Chiara Quartet, tours regularly in North America, Europe and Asia. With the Chiara Quartet, Ms. Fischer
has won top prizes in the Fischoff National Chamber Music competition,
the Paolo Borciani Competition in Italy, the Astral Artistic Services audition, and was awarded the Chamber Music America/ASCAP Award for
Adventurous Programming. Praised for her “beautiful tone and nuanced
phrasing (Boston Musical Intelligencer),” Ms. Fischer is also a part of The Afield, an interdisciplinary collaboration with her husband,
artist and writer Anthony Hawley. With The Afield Ms. Fischer has performed at the CounterCurrent Festival in Houston, Texas (as violinist, actress and dancer), on the streets of New York City, and
at Arte Studio Ginestrelle in Assisi, Italy. In the summer of 2016, The Afield was in residence at Design Inquiry on the island of Vinalhaven, Maine, developing the multi-media performance “Time
Pieces.” A passionate educator, Ms. Fischer is a Research Associate Professor and Hixson-Lied Artist-in-Residence at the University of
Nebraska–Lincoln and summer faculty at Greenwood Music Camp in western
Massachusetts.

Anthony Hawley’s work has won him residencies and awards from the MacDowell Colony, the Hermitage Artist Retreat, Art Farm, VCCA, the
Nebraska Arts Council and Arte Studio Ginistrelle. Recent Solo Exhibitions include Countercurrent Festival in partnership with the
Menil Collection and Aurora Picture Show, Houston, TX (2016); Vox
Populi, Philadelphia (2014); Dolphin Gallery, Kansas City (2012); and
the Museum of Nebraska Art (2012). His essays and poems have appeared
in numerous publications including The Brooklyn Rail, Modern Painters,
The Paris Review, Denver Quarterly, Verse, Colorado Review and
Flatlanders. His paintings appear in the most recent issue of New
American Painting, “West.” Born in 1977, Anthony Hawley grew up in
Massachusetts and was educated at Columbia University and the MFA Art
Practice Program at the School of Visual Arts. He teaches in the Art Department at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
