The Sound of Color Juried Exhibition and Sale

May 19 – June 14, 2018

The Dutch Art Gallery proudly presents “The Sound of Color” a visual celebration of music.

This diverse juried show of original fine art features a variety of different media unified by a common theme. Sound and language combined can move our souls. Music has the power to lift us to the heights of joy or bring us to tears. Art has the same power. Each work of art is accompanied by a written explanation of the artist’s thoughts and what song inspired their piece. Forty-seven different artists and 69 works of art are included in this show with styles ranging from traditional to abstract. Each one is a story set to music and each piece sings. Come see how music has uniquely inspired these artists.

A special reception will be held during the official show opening on Saturday, May 19th from 11am-6pm. Those in attendance will be able to meet many of the show artists. The awards presentation will be held at 2pm. Additionally, the first 25 patrons for the opening receive a special “Goodie Bag” that contains a miniature original art piece by one of the show artists. “The Sound of Color” runs through June 14th.

“Row Row Row Your Boat” is a playful painting by artist Leighann Foster. The general meaning of this song is to row through your life in a joyful manner and is one we’ve all come to associate with childhood. To convey that meaning, she’s used colorful stuffed toys as the main subjects. Leighann states, “The song, characters, colors, and humor all tie together for a positive experience.”

Barbara Jones’ expressive still life “Song Sung Blue Again” is inspired by Neil Diamond’s 1972 hit “Song Sung Blue”. Barbara tell us that blue in the song refers to a feeling of sadness, but she has chosen to use the color in her painting to reveal its beauty. She exclaims, “Let art chase the blues away!” “Song Sung Blue” itself owes its existence to Mozart’s Piano Concerto #21 which served as inspiration for Neil Diamond.
