Interpretations VIII: Art and Music through a Humanities Lens
A discussion about interdisciplinary connections in conjunction with the Arizona Art Alliance Interpretations VIII Exhibition Opening Reception at the WHAM Community Art Center.
WHAM Community Art Center, Surprise, AZ
Join us for an afternoon of visual and musical arts. The Central Arizona Flute Ensemble will provide live music that relates to five fine works of art in the Arizona Art Alliance’s Interpretations VIII exhibition. Experience the juxtaposition of paintings with the live music. The program, facilitated by leading humanities professors, will build meaning, create dialogue, and offer insight about how artists and composers express their ideas, and how audiences process them. The exhibiting artists will offer insights about their techniques and inspiration.
Selected artists: Marion Droge, Debra Goley, Martha Klare, Donna Ceraulo, and TJ Oxley.
“Artists know that the very, very personal is universal. They invite us to participate, to interact, but we don’t always have opportunities that foster this interaction. The process of engagement can be made more possible by dialogue.”

“I look forward to discussing the relationship between visual art and sound, and how images and music are perceived differently. There is a rich historic and cultural context for us to explore.” Dr. Julie Codell, Humanities Scholar, Art Specialist
