Encore ​January 2 - 26
From tribal drumming to radio DJs, advertising jingles to Italian opera, music is important to every culture. Even though it is more accessible than ever before, our thirst for rhythm and melody continues unabated. For this exhibition, The Kiernan Gallery asks you to explore one art form with another; using the visual medium of photography to illustrate the sounds that inspire you.
Show us your record collections, instruments, and portraits of musicians and fans. Show us stadium concerts, jam sessions, and street performers from distant nations. Most of all, show us what music means to you. For Encore: A Look at Music, The Kiernan Gallery seeks photographs of and inspired by music.
