Still Point Art Gallery Opens "Rhythmic Sensation-Visual Sensation"

I am very pleased to announce the opening of Still Point Art Gallery's online exhibition: Rhythmic Sensation-Visual Sensation.

 Rhythm is all around us - in music, in poetry, in patterns of speech, in architecture, in nature. Rhythm is within us - our hearts beat, our lungs take air in and let air out, our running feet hit the ground in a set pattern. This exhibition explores the ways that rhythm is part of visual art...the rhythm that is created by pattern, repetition, and movement...and formed by line, color, shape, and texture. Artists were invited to submit compositions that use these elements to create rhythm, giving the viewer the opportunity to experience rhythmic sensation and visual sensation.


This show will make you want to move! If you are like me, you will start to hear music or sounds while viewing this show. Music that flows, music that bebops, music that pings and pongs, music that sways, shimmers, and rocks. Johann Sebastian Bach, Ludwig van Beethoven, Claude Debussy, John Cage...Elvis Presley, The Grateful Dead, The Flaming Lips. It's all here...pattern, repetition, movement, rhythm...a real visual sensation!

  1. Wow what a great exhibition!! I am so thrilled to be included. The theme couldn't have been more timely for me because it was just after I spent an evening at the state Fair shooting the movements of the rides and those immediately came to mind for this show...
