Music to Our Eyes & Piece by Piece: Opening Reception

Wed, March 8 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm EST

Music to Our Eyes & Piece by Piece are the two parts of a Library-wide art installation created by the Artist Collective of Westport. The artwork will be presented in all three of the Library’s gallery spaces. These exhibits coincide with VersoFest 2023. The juxtaposition of these exhibits with the festival offers attendees an opportunity to not only hear some amazing music, but to see it interpreted through painting, drawing, photography, and collage as well. And what is music if not art for the ears.

Register HERE for the reception, which will feature musical accompaniment by jazz guitarist Bill Bickford.

A large, collaborative piece entitled Piece by Piece will be on view in the South Gallery, with the companion show, Music to My Eyes, on view in the Sheffer and Jesup Galleries.

For Piece by Piece, the artists created an individual piece, replicating a part of a larger painting in their own style — without knowing what the final painting would look like until it is revealed at the opening reception on March 8.

Music to My Eyes is the Artists Collective’s second all-member show at the Library based on the theme of music. These artworks are also available for purchase, with a percentage of the proceeds going to benefit the Library. Each individual piece is the artist's interpretation of the music theme.
