Community art showcase – Art and music mix in November show

It soothes the ruffled soul and calms us, human, plant and animal, into a gentler, more serene place.

Whether it’s classical, salsa or electronic, music has the rock that rolls us.

It moves us, literally and figuratively. It soothes the ruffled soul and calms us, human, plant and animal, into a gentler, more serene place. If you’ve ever turned the music up loud for housework or shop-work, you know what I’m talking about. There is a transcendence element to music when its rhythms are rocking us.

Musical metaphors are rife in the language of art. It is popular in mixed media art in the last several years to use music sheets in one’s work. Most people have an affinity to music; it enlivens, pacifies and uplifts.

Music is the movement of the soul, a definitive language and expression that is a cousin of fine art.  Both express thoughts, stories, emotions, views, ideas and opinions of human life. On a cultural level, art and music change over time and influence fashion and dance.

This month, intake for Play That Melody at the Ladysmith Waterfront Gallery is Tuesday, Oct. 28 and Wednesday, Oct. 29.

Get your mojo swinging and grooving and bring in one of your creations.

If you are not a member, then still bring your work in and take out a one-year membership for $24 to show your work.

It’s worth it, and you’ll be inspired each month to get to your studio or easel.

The Ladysmith Waterfront Gallery welcomes new and emerging artists.

Opening night for Play That Melody is Saturday, Nov. 1 at 7 p.m. Everyone is welcome to come hear one of the Ladysmith Arts Council (LAC)’s favourite and dynamic guest speakers, Paul Fudge. Fudge is a seasoned artist and instructor who paints in oil and acrylic.

Please join the LAC members and studio artists for a night of reflecting on how melody and art intertwine.

The Play That Melody show will continue until the end of November.
