Art Rosenbaum: Voices, featuring a small collection of monumental paintings of American folk musicians, opens in the Loft Gallery at The Bascom in Highlands on Sept. 1, with a reception from 5-7 p.m.
Rosenbaum’s works depicting rural Southern life are combinations of both real and imagined people, places and events. Ethnographer as well as artist, he brings storytelling to view in the form of folktale paintings full of vibrant, sweeping color. The exhibition runs through Nov.10.
On Sept. 2, Art and Margo Rosenbaum will present an artist talk at The Bascom from 2-3 p.m. Margo Rosenbaum’s black and white photographs of the folk musicians in Rosenbaum’s paintings will be on display in the permanent collection space.
The Bascom is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Mondays through Saturdays and noon to 5 p.m., Sundays.
