Classical Guitar at the “Organica” exhibition

As I’ve been talking about over these last few posts (ok, bragging) I am about to open an exhibition of original oil paintings called “Organica”. I am doing this simultaneously in “real life” Saratoga Springs, NY at the House of Creative Soul and in “virtual life” at the Aries Gallery STNY in Second Life. Real time video will be streamed from the gallery in NY in to the virtual gallery, allowing the resident avatars in that dimension to watch the activities at the actual exhibition. At the same time, we will project the virtual event in to the House of Creative Soul, so that attendees may see the events taking place in my Second Life Gallery.

The first hour will be devoted to the poetry of Karima Hoisan and Emile Sands-Stratten, as I have already described in prior posts. The second hour will be filled with the masterful, eclectic sounds of Voodoo Shilton’s classical guitar. His playing will bring melodic elegance to the affair and I am so proud to have him.

oodoo Shilton’s musical interests span a wide range from jazz, blues, and bossa nova to classical, latin, world music, indian music and more. His performances feature many original pieces as well as covers of jazz standards and other songs… all delivered on the nylon string guitar. No backing tracks.. no tricks.. just pure guitar arrangements sure to take you somewhere new and different

About monicalinvillefineart

I have been a working studio artist for over 30 years now. Self-taught, painting has been as much a part of my life as breathing. I learned by doing. Over 20 of those years have been spent on a little mountain in the Caribbean where my primary studio is located. I recently opened a second studio in Saratoga Springs, New York. I made the decision years ago that the best way to get people interested in coming to see my paintings was to simply be the best painter I could possibly be. Easel time. I put in a LOT of easel time. The gods have been good as I have been fortunate that in spite of my isolation from the art markets of the world, people still seek me out and find me. My work is now in collections around the world and students come to my mountain in search of instruction. My life has been good. I offer my world up to you as a refuge. I believe that is the purpose of my art.... it is a sanctuary for my soul while creating it and I would like it to be a sanctuary for yours while viewing it. I want to dance with you. I want to be part of your thoughts. I want to be part of your memory. Be delighted, please. Delight soothes the soul.
