Staff Pick: ‘Rita Cameron: An Artists’ Collaboration’

If you want to learn how to create abstract art, listen to music. Or talk with painter Rita Cameron first, as her art is greatly influenced by the rhythms of music. She listened to a variety of styles while creating the 19 paintings in this exhibition (she has a turntable in her studio); a few were even painted while listening to live bands. “This series began unexpectedly,” Cameron said. “In late 2016, I participated in an open forum expressive arts session sponsored by the local non-profit Strive, known as ‘In the Moment,’ where people [expressed] themselves through poetry, spoken word and music while encouraging others to join in or just observe. I was invited to represent another layer of the arts, since my work is influenced by and with music.”
