ANCA Gallery is pleased to present THREE CHORDS & THE TRUTH, an exhibition of art works inspired by music and just in time for the National Folk Festival.
Wednesday 31 March – 11 April 2010
In keeping with the theme, the opening night features live music by local band Dr Stovepipe who have been playing recently around Canberra and will perform later at the Folk Festival.
Featuring a diverse group of eight artists, the exhibition includes Ampersand Duck, Geoffrey Dunn, Nicci Haynes, Philippa Hofgartner, Andrew Mayo, Franki Sparke, Peter Stewart and Anne Warren. Curated by Narelle Phillips.
While some of the artists focus on the music makers conveying moments during performances and recording, others distill the rhythms and language of various forms of music to the point of abstraction. Free to explore any manifestation of music, the artists’ responses are broad and intriguing, and remind us of the universal appeal of music in one form or another.
