“Art and Music: Touching Sound” at Arts Council
“ART AND MUSIC: TOUCHING SOUND”: This work by Susan Hoenig is featured in the Arts Council of Princeton’s newest exhibition, on view September 26 through October 24 in the Taplin Gallery. Featuring paintings, drawings, and sculpture, the show is a collaboration between the Princeton Artists Alliance and Mobius Percussion.
The Arts Council of Princeton now presents “Art and Music: Touching Sound,” a collaboration between the Princeton Artists Alliance and Mobius Percussion. The exhibition, featuring paintings, drawings, and sculpture, is inspired by Mobius’ performance of paper melodies (my music box music) by Jason Treuting, a member of the acclaimed ensemble S Percussion. The show will be on display in the Arts Council of Princeton’s Taplin Gallery from September 26 to October 24.
In this collaborative project, co-curated by Donna Payton and Kathleen Preziosi, the artists have searched for their imagery through the original music. The musicians have the opportunity to see how visual artists interpret their work and, likewise, the artists have the opportunity to visually record the influence of musical sounds.
A recording of paper melodies will be playing in the gallery as visitors view the artwork. Standing before the art and listening to the musical score offers the viewer a richer sensory experience, enhancing the human link between listening and seeing.
The Arts Council of Princeton is located at 102 Witherspoon Street. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 1:30-4:30 p.m. For more information, visit artscouncilofprinceton.org.
