Spring Awakening string concert
“Spring Awakening” featured violinist Alexey Shabalin and violinist Consuelo Sherba of the Aurea Ensemble performing a collaborative program of violin and viola music, vibrating with the colors and textures of Paciorek’s landscape watercolor exhibition. This synergistic program featured the music of Bach, Vivaldi, Mozart, tangoes of Jose Elizondo and more. Artists featured in the exhibition include Paciorek as well as Harley Bartlett, Mary Jane Andreozzi, Sam Green, Judy Vilmain, Karole Nicholson, Linnea Leeming, and more.
facing emotion: a conversation about why art speaks to us
The Pitcher-Goff House hosted a lively conversation between artist Nick Paciorek and psychologist Joe Pereira, with plenty of time for audience Q&A. Any time we look at art, it evokes a certain emotion, as different for each viewer as there are people on earth. In this talk, Nick and Joe will focus on artwork that emphasizes faces as subject matter. They’ll dive deep into why art evokes emotion, why artists are drawn to faces, why looking at face art is like looking into a mirror, and how they use faces to inspire emotion. They’ll help you open your mind about how to look at art that features faces and what to ask yourself as you collect art. More than colleagues, Nick and Joe are long-time friends, making this event more like eavesdropping on a smart friend’s conversation.
