Art opening reception: "The Connection Between Music and Visual Art" with Greg Hejja

Bisong Art Gallery

Greg Hejja experiments in many styles, from the stark and expressionist to the geometrical and abstract, with the hope that the viewer engages not just with aesthetic composition, but also with the sentiments manifested within them. Philosophically, Hejja enjoys contemplating the connection between his music and his visual art. For instance, both jazz and blues have roots in the idea that there is beauty inherent in improvisation and imperfection, and for Hejja, making art is kind of like jamming. It starts with a basic idea, and each brush stroke, perfect or imperfect, contributes to the final composition of the piece. His visual art is as diverse as the seven different instruments he plays.

Hejja will display his latest works and a new piece inspired by R&B recording artist Sugar Joiko.
