‘A Little Night Music’ with Russ Warren to open in Beverley Street Studio School Gallery

poster warren 2On August 2 the Beverley Street Studio School Gallery opens an exhibit by acclaimed painter Russ Warren. Titled “A Little Night Music,” the exhibition will feature Warren’s latest works that showcase a relationship between art and music.

In Warren’s artist statement he states, “A Little Night Music (Eine Kleine Nachtmusik or Serenade for Night, W.A. Mozart, 1787) is a piece which parallels the many pictures I create which conquer the distance between dusk and dawn.  Day and night, heaven and hell, polar opposites all display the dichotomy that allows us to see some truth through the eclipse and shadow which engulfs us. Paint and music play equally in this arena of dreams and provide the stage for the brush to hopefully weave its bristles we call night.”

The exhibit will open from 5:30 – 7:30pm on August 2, with an Artist’s Talk featured at 6pm. The exhibit will be available for viewing in the BSSS Gallery (located at 22 West Beverley Street) until September 15.
