Art and Music: Touching Sound Princeton Artist Alliance

September 26 - October 24

We hear music. But what does music look like? A picture is worth a thousand sounds. Art and music complement one another and form a connection. The stimuli from each strengthen the other. Artists find their inspiration from many sources.


The artists of Princeton Artists’ Alliance are collaborating with the musicians of Mobius Percussion in the exhibition Art and Music: Touching Sound. Inspired by the musicians’ performance of Paper Melodies (my music box music) composed by Jason Treuting of So Percussion, the visual artists have created paintings, drawings, and sculptures.


In this collaborative project, 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, 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.


This exhibition will enhance the human experience between listening and seeing.


The artists have all created new works for this show. Art and Music: Touching Sound will reflect the varied interpretation and influence the same composition has for each artist. The viewer will experience their own connections with the visual sights and sounds.


Co-curated by Donna Payton and Kathleen Preziosi.
