Last chance to see ‘Color: A Spectrum of Sound–Music as Metaphor in the Visual Arts’

The exhibition of visual artist Lori-Gene’s works, titled “Color: A Spectrum of Sound - Music as Metaphor in the Visual Arts,” has been extended to Wednesday, July 4. This is the last chance to see the free show by an Atlanta-based artist, now on display in the Schatten Corridor Gallery of the Woodruff Library. The gallery is open during the library’s regular summer hours.

In addition to Lori-Gene’s widely exhibited music-based drawings, the show includes the first-ever public exhibition of oil paintings by the artist. This exhibition was created in conjunction with a multi-disciplinary concert event featuring the Emory Wind Ensemble.

About these works, Lori-Gene said she “combines the phenomena of motion, sound and sight to create an image of the passion that is heard and felt through music.” She frequently draws in the midst of musicians. “Through a unique empathy, I merge with musician and instrument, feeling them become the music they play … I connect with an ineffable quality present in all the arts … line, form and color are as much properties of sound as of visual art. The result is something entirely new, a drawing or painting that the viewer can hear as well as see,” she said.
