The sight of sound overwhelms at Quinlan
"Dancing in the Ruins" by artist Suzy Schultz is one of the many works on display at the Quinlan Visual Arts Center.

The next exhibit opens tonight at the Quinlan Visual Arts Center, 514 Green St. N.E., Gainesville, and features an array of stunning works by local artists.

The show titled "Sound Off! Art Inspired by Music," is a collection of pieces either depicting music explicitly or abstractly.

Works range from the realistic to the surreal, from the impressionistic to the very modern. The show is juried by Anna Pozzi-Harris, who teaches art at North Georgia College & State University and directs the Bob Owens Art Gallery at NGCSU, and John Amos, Assistant Professor and Art Program Coordinator at Gainesville State College.

The opening reception will begin at 5:30 p.m. with awards at 6:15. There will be live music, as well.

Solo artists featured are Ann Alexander’s "My Point of View," Paula Van Huss’ "Feeling in Color" and Mark Boomershine’s "Super Heroes Have Thoughts and Feelings Too."

"Sound Off!" will run until Aug. 16. The event is free to the public. Donations are always welcomed.
