Joe Satriani will be hosting art showings at two Wentworth Gallery locations in Virginia and Maryland. The exhibits will feature a number of one-of-a-kind pieces including original canvases and hand painted guitars.
Here’s the dates:
06/11 McLean, VA – Wentworth Gallery at Tysons Galleria (at 3-6 p.m.)
06/12 Bethesda, MD – Wentworth Gallery at Montgomery Mall (at 1-3 p.m.)
Christian O’Mahony, principal at Wentworth Gallery, said the following:
“Joe is a master storyteller. Just as his music draws in the listener, his art draws in the viewer. His artwork is emotional, imaginative, and fantastic. Not only do you see the universe through Joe’s eyes, but you also contemplate our place in it.”
“Music and art are my passions. I like making the invisible visible and the unimaginable real. The image on a canvas or an electric guitar for that matter can make you feel something unexpected and revealing, something that is the beginning of a greater personal insight. Challenging the straight line and the concepts of what belongs with what excites me. I want to experience new color combinations to make me see beyond the prevailing reality. There’s a balance between seriousness and humor that can imbue in a painting a kind of resilience and longevity, making it forever contemporary. When I paint and play my guitar, I strive to be in a state of exhilaration and communicate that feeling to my fans.”
