(The St. Christopher National Trust) May 16, 2018: The much-anticipated “How Music Feels” Art Exhibition opens at the National Trust on International Museum Day, Friday May 18th.
“I just love to paint and any opportunity to showcase my work is exciting,” says renowned Nevisian artist Vaughn Anslyn.
He is excited about the theme.
“Music to me is like art…it’s medium…a vessel of expression where one can immerse themselves in a moment of total freedom from the constraints of life.”Anslyn raves.
He is one of 18 artists exhibiting their work in the exhibition, which runs until July 13th.
Sandy Point artist Pierre Liburd is also excited about the theme.
“When I hear music I see colours; images and colours. It depends on the music. In fact, I usually paint while listening music; it’s an inspiration and a constant in my creative process, “Liburd says.
The Exhibition, which included a few pieces of ceramic art, features the work of local artist.
“It’s a way for me to support our local art scene,” artist and art teacher Lizca Bass says, when asked about her decision to submit work for “How Music Feels.”
Dr. Halla Sahely, who has not exhibited or sold her world before, says for her part the exhibition provided a unique opportunity.
“In the past year, I was searching to rekindle my creativity as I knew this would bring joy and mindfulness to my life and so I decided to start painting. In my youth, I was creative through music and played two instruments in high school days. This exhibit seemed like the perfect union of these two creative paths.”
