New York, NY (PRWEB) November 22, 2014
The American painter and sculptor, Karen Salicath Jamali, will debut new paintings and music in an exhibition entitled Event Horizon – 7 Tones From Heaven, opening on Thursday, December 4th, 2014, 6:00-8:30 pm, at the new showroom of Faust Harrison Pianos in Fairfield, Connecticut.
In her most comprehensive exhibition to date in the U.S. that runs through February, Karen will present an extraordinary body of work including 50 new paintings from her Event Horizon series, plus her piano compositions, 7 Tones From Heaven.
“This exhibition, Event Horizon – 7 Tones From Heaven, started four years ago when I began to paint the Event Horizon pieces," said Karen. "Event horizon is the place in the universe where the laws of physics cease and another reality begins. Sometime later I had an accident and I partially lost touch with reality. I could not see light, hear sound, and had difficulty speaking for two and a half years. Last Christmas, music began to come to me and I discovered I could play piano. I had to buy a Steinway from Faust Harrison and the music came together. I am thrilled to have been invited by Erica Feidner of Faust Harrison Pianos to present my artwork and music in their new showroom.”
“Faust Harrison Pianos regularly showcases the artwork of prominent local artists, and we’re excited to present the latest paintings and music by Karen Salicath Jamali at our new showroom in Fairfield,” said Irving Faust, Managing Director of Faust Harrison. Their newest showroom, in a beautifully renovated building in Fairfield, Connecticut, was designed to build upon the Faust Harrison tradition of pianos and art.
“Large, open spaces, fine lighting and terrific acoustics make it an ideal new home for music and the arts. This is a new cultural treasure in Fairfield County to be enjoyed by everyone,” said Irving. To make a reservation for the opening, please email Erica Feidner at Erica(at)FaustHarrisonPianos(dot)com.
