Musicians, artists and musician/artists celebrate the synthesis of art and music when Listen Deep presents “Art and Sound, A Journey into the Mind of Music” at Gallery 446 in Palm Springs. This exhibition, featuring original works by a select group of talented musicians and artists in honor of the Coachella Music Festival, opens with a reception April 10, 2014 from 7pm to 10pm.
Now in its 16th year, the Coachella Music & Arts Festival provides the perfect background for this gallery show curated by Eddie Donaldson (Guerillaone), Raymond Roker (URB Magazine) and Jen Disisto (Art Duet). Over thirty-five artists explore the relationship between the visual and the aural. From photos of music icons (works by Piper Ferguson, Janette Beckman, Estevan Oriol, Patrick Hoelck, Ricky Powell ) to photos and paintings by music icons (including Moby, Brandon Boyd, DJ Poet, members of House of Pain and Fishbone, DJ Z Trip, Aaron LaCrate, and Stephen Malbon of Frank151, to name a few), to music-themed art (including a piece by Cartwheel Art writer/photographer Lauren Over), “Art and Sound” takes the viewer on a sensory journey.
On Saturdays of Coachella, April 12 and 19, from 11am to 5pm, the “Art and Sound” becomes an even more immersive experience with the public invited to a gifting lounge at Gallery 446, where gift bags, featuring an array of exclusive items relating to art and music, will be distributed.
