“Paint The Music” brings together local musicians and area painters for a showcase whereby the visual artist paints an entirely new work of art on stage with the singer-songwriter, using inspiration from the first song of the musician’s live set. The viewers’ energy becomes part of the art as audience members are encouraged to interact with the musicians and artists, becoming the third arm of a creative triad. The paintings can be purchased at the end of the night via a silent auction.
