Atlanta Symphony Orchestra

On view January 2-8, 2005

In conjunction with the January Art Guild Show, the Cultural Arts Council presents "Painted Violins"
in support of the Atlanta Symphony Associates, a group dedicated to developing support and participation in the Atlanta Symphony activities and performances throughout greater metropolitan Atlanta. Three painted violins decorated by Atlanta-based artists Anne Hathaway, Dixie Purvis and James Way will be on displayat the Cultural Arts Center from January 2nd through January 9th.

The one-week presentation in Douglasville is part of a six-month long tour of twelve painted violins that began in November 2004 at the Symphony Ball. The CAC display features designer Hathaway’s whimsical decoupage, Sea Symphony, the color-filled painting, Kinetic Energy II, by Purvis, and Way’s fiddling pig drawings in The Herald of Harmony, each created on the surface of a violin.
