Jazz & Blues Greats: Portraits by Sean Cassidy
April 1 - May 1, 2013
Gallery Hours: Monday through Friday, 10 am to 4 pm; Sundays, 10 am to 2 pm
Opening reception: Sunday, April 7, 1 to 3 pm
In this series of bold, energetic and lively portraits of great Jazz and Blues musicians, Sean Cassidy imbues each painting with both the spirit of the musicians and the sensations of the music that made them famous. His use of gestural marks, rich colors and a responsive style serve to bring such greats as Dizzy Gillespie, Miles Davis, Josephine Baker and many others to life. This exhibition is a companion to the The Golden Age of Jazz lecture on Saturday, April 13th at 10:00 am. More at www.highfieldhall.org.
