Seeing the Sound, Hearing the Picture
Dates : Part I: July 6 (Saturday) – July 31 (Wednesday), 2013 Part II: August 2 (Friday) – September 1 (Sunday), 2013
As you might envision a landscape while listening to music, do you sometimes feel you can hear the sounds depicted in a picture? That is what these selected works of art entice you to do: to view the wind, water, a cheering crowd, animals, and to hear them in your mind’s ear. They say art is made by the heart to be enjoyed by the heart. This exhibition invites you to enjoy art from a slightly different perspective.
