Arturo Sandoval Live at Blues Alley May 10-13

April 18, 2018

Ten-time Grammy winning Latin Jazz legend, Arturo Sandoval will be performing live at Blues Alley May 10 through May 13, 2018.

 

Granted political asylum in July 1990 and US citizenship in 1999, Sandoval and his family now call Miami, Florida home. A protégé of the legendary jazz master Dizzy Gillespie, Sandoval was born in Artemisa, a small town in the outskirts of Havana, Cuba, on November 6, 1949, just two years after Gillespie became the first musician to bring Latin influences into American Jazz. Sandoval began studying classical trumpet at the age of twelve, but it didn’t take him long to catch the excitement of the jazz world. He has since evolved into one of the World’s most acknowledged guardians of jazz trumpet and flugel horn, as well as a renowned classical artist, pianist and composer.

Arturo Sandoval is fluent in at least four musical languages. He can burn through an Afro-Cuban groove, tear up a bebop tune, soar over a Mozart concerto and sooth you with a luscious ballad; with equal power and grace.

Artist's Proof Explores Monochrome April 14th

April 3, 2018

Artist’s Proof will be exploring the intricacies of color in ‘The Theory of Color’ - a two-part exhibition this Spring.

 

Presenting only white monochrome sculptures and paintings in April, they consider the philosophical, poetic and spiritual associates attributed to a color that is often perceived as ‘negative space’.  The paintings and sculptures presented in this exhibition predominately use white or black, which often draws attention to the other aspects of the artwork such as the techniques, materials, textures, and forms used by the artists. Each artist engages their technique to this concept of working within the monochrome, reducing their art to its elemental form. 

 

At the opening reception on April 14, 2018, from 4:00 - 6:00 pm, Washington, D.C. based artist Craig Cahoon will be conducting a workshop on the monochromatic interference paint he employs within the presented series.

 

Artist Demonstration to begin at 4:30 pm.

Artist’s Proof Gallery at 1533 Wisconsin Avenue in Georgetown.
