In June, you’ll be able to catch my artwork as part of the Shenandoah Valley Bach Festival. As an occasional singer in the Festival, I’m looking forward to being involved this year on the visual art side. Should be the perfect pairing of artwork and music! Be sure to come out on Sunday, June 14 for a presentation at 2:00pm that explains more about my process and looks at other forms of untraditional music notation.
The Score Is Not the Music
Shenandoah Valley Bach Festival
Margaret Martin Gehman Gallery (University Commons at Eastern Mennonite University)
June 14-21, 2015
Gallery opens June 14 at 1:30 pm; artist presentation at 2:00 pm
What does music look like? Artist Melinda Steffy translates the music of J.S. Bach into visual artworks that reveal unexpected color patterns and spatial configurations. The exhibit features a series of watercolors based on the Well-Tempered Clavier and Cello Suite No. 1. Before Festival Concert 1, stop by the gallery for an artist presentation, “The Score is Not the Music,” discussing alternate music notation and intersections between format/functionality and creative expression.
