Music and Art in the Gallery

Join us in the Art Saint Louis Gallery on Monday, January 14, from 5:30-6:30 p.m. as violinist Lorraine Glass-Harris and bassoonist Hank Skolnick perform George Frideric Handel's D Major Sonata for Violin with Bassoon Continuo, with the new exhibition Misperception on view as the backdrop to this unique, one-hour moderated performance.

Hande's 4-movement sonata for violin and bassoon is a work with clear and contrasting emotional affects. Each movement is approximately 2-3 minutes long. The musicians will repeat each movement several times with differing instructions to the audience and guest moderator, visual artist Erin McGrath Rieke, will lead the audience through the musical work and talk about the combination of music and art.

The public is warmly invited to this free event and audience members are encouraged to bring sketchbooks, watercolors and paper, cameras (NO FLASH), or any other small art making materials to create artworks while the musicians perform.

Seating is limited--50 guests maximum. Children over 10 accompanied by an adult are welcome. RSVP required by January 12, 2013 to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . 314/241-4810, 2#.
