Eternal Color: Stories of Saints from Antiquity
Twelve paintings of little-known historical saints will be on display. From 6-8 PM, a duo of award-winning musicians, called the Inspire Duo, will perform a live musical interpretation of each piece.
The opening for Eternal Color will be a unique art and music combination offered for the First Friday Gallery Walk on February 1st.
About the music: A classically-trained flutist and pianist will perform musical interpretations of Carmon's large scale painted portraits. The show combines oil painting, poetry, and musical interpretation to create a multi-sensory artistic experience.
