March 8 – April 29
Ignacio Alperin: Visual Jazz
Jazz genre inspires and formulates each of the canvases created by Buenos Aires artist Ignacio Alperin Bruvera. His approach to artmaking is based on his synesthesia, a unique ability to “see sounds”. Just as there is beauty and complexity to jazz, the same qualities spill out from this artist onto canvas. His brilliantly-colored abstracts reflect resonating movement, and compacted intensity with natural soft counter balance.
Join us April 29 for an International Jazz celebration, 7-10 pm. The ticketed event will feature live music brought to you by Bruno Nasta, salsa and bachata dancing, international food, Argentinian wine, and of course, beautiful Argentinian art provided by Ignacio Alperin.

Time: Wednesday-Sunday, 10:00 am – 5:00 pm

Phone: (540) 687-6542
Information: The bold and vibrant compositions of contemporary sporting artist Andre Pater (Polish-American, b. 1953) are often compared to those of the great 20th-century British sporting artist Sir Alfred Munnings. Pater’s refinement in pastels in addition to the classic medium of oil solidifies his rightful place as an illustrious artist in the 21st century. Works from collections across the country will be represented in the retrospective exhibition, Andre Pater: A Matter of Light. “Go beyond the mere image, and the painting becomes a ‘matter of light,’ ” notes sporting art authority and National Sporting Library & Museum Board Member Lorian Peralta-Ramos of Pater’s work. The retrospective exhibition and accompanying catalog present an in-depth analysis of Pater’s mastery of the use of light and insightful understanding of animal anatomy and behavior.

For over two decades, the Irish fiddler and American guitarist have performed at major concert halls and festivals around the globe. The duo also helped found the new Irish supergroup The Gloaming.

The New York Times describes the duo as “simply exquisite. They strip old reels and jigs to their essence, leaving space between the notes for harmonics and whispered blue notes…A Celtic complement to Steve Reich’s quartets or Miles Davis’s ‘Sketches of Spain’.”
