Nov 24, Hastings Early Music Festival, Opus Theatre
Hastings Early Music Festival welcomes artist Caro SaintVire to exhibit at Opus Theatre on Nov 24 for the opening concert of the Festival. Caro has selected works to reflect the music being performed by the Rautio Piano Trio in the evening’s concert – Haydn, Mozart & Beethoven.
Caro: “When I’m painting in the studio, music is always incredibly important to me. It plays loudly, surrounding me with a layer of vibration, drowning out the outside world, allowing me to get to that place of connection with some inner flow… the expression of this through paint on canvas, pulling in the inspiration of remembered skies and seas, light and dark, sometimes vivid in colour, sometimes monochrome… sometimes quiet… but mostly full of the sublime drama of the natural world.”
Pop in to Opus Theatre from 4pm to view Caro’s paintings.
