Name That Tune explores the visual interpretation of music. In this interactive exhibition, viewers are tasked with guessing the song that inspired a work of art. To help solve the mystery, visitors are given the song titles on a sheet of paper as they walk around the gallery inspecting each piece of art for clues. For example, the acrylic painting above by Carol Joannette is titled "Goo Goo g'Joob" and features a huge walrus with a little bird sitting on top. Is the bird singing? The artist gives just enough clues to name that tune!
This juried exhibition was curated by the Virginia Beach Art Center and guest juror Lynette Andrews. Lynette is a life-long lover of music, who plays and teaches violin, and has served as the executive director of Symphonicity since 2017.
Name That Tune is on view from June 2nd to July 2nd and concludes with Artists Talk, a casual conversation between exhibiting artists and friends on July 2nd from 1:00-2:00. The exhibition and talk are both free and open to the public.
