Ansel Adams once said “When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.”
The Huntington Arts Council invites artists to submit work that meets at the intersection of visual art and music. Does your work exude rhythm, melody, lyrics, harmony or dissonance from a social, political or musical perspective? Does it elicit a reaction in sounds, words or movement? Does it dance or sway? Does it move, or move the viewer? Does it sing?
About the Juror: Kevin McEvoy is the Director of the Atelier at Flowerfield. Kevin’s work is an a malgamated vocabulary, his adjectives classical painting, his nouns modern life, having acquired painting techniques at the world renowned Charles Cecil Studios of Florence, Italy, Kevin returned to New York to construct a custom designed painter’s studio on Long Island. “I’m not so concerned with originality, I’m not after that artist statement that shocks us with its newness. It’s really just simple. I just paint what I am with, where I am. I simply relay the story before me, the way the neck of a violin is worn down by a century of playing, the lyrical silhouette of a woman’s neck, the distant stare of a Vietnam Veteran. I’m fascinated by common things.”
