“River of Life ” ~ A One-Time Only Performance of Art in Motion!

8:00 PM (immediately following the Anchorage Press Writing Contest Reading & Awards Presentation)

A unique collaboration comes to life as two artists – one visual, one vocal – join together for a new creative expression using two different yet simultaneous mediums. Marrying live silk painting – created on-the-spot by Julia March Crocetto – with live vocalArt and improvisational music created on-the-spot by Sharon Corsaro – this artistic duo will present a one-time-only performance, never experienced in Alaska before, to produce art-in-the-moment.

This performance is the latest installment of the MTS Gallery’s ongoing series OPEN/CLOSE, the after hours First Friday Salon. This spontaneous performance carries forth the spirit of collaboration promoted throughout “Confluence/Influence,” an exhibition of Talkeetna River Valley artists curated by Crocetto currently on display at MTS Gallery through April 10. The First Friday Reception also presents a final opportunity to meet the various artists displaying their works in this group invitational show.
