Event Description

The Grand Opening of Kristin Johnson Fine Art in Santa Fe
Debuts A Collection of World-renowned Artists and Local Talents and
Hosts a Benefit for The Santa Fe Symphony – with Garden Music performed by members of The Symphony

Reception: Friday, May 10th - 2013, 5:30 – 7:30 pm

Throughout history one can find a strong connection between the visual and performing arts – thus, it is only fitting that Kristin Johnson Fine Art is hosting a Benefit for the Santa Fe Symphony during her inaugural gallery exhibition – AN AFFAIR WITH THE MUSE.

In studying the history of the visual and performing arts, one will find parallels between the specific genres of music and art - both past and present. One can discover cross-inspirational emotional influences both historical and environmental as well as physical influences such as tools, mediums and technology. In art: the virtual score becomes the subject and in the performing arts, the virtual subject becomes the score – each drawing from the other canon.

Kristin Johnson Fine Art has respectfully and diligently selected to represent several visibly diverse artists, each expressing a different perspective on their personal journey in life and in art. The art exhibited is wide-ranging; from monumental public sculpture, to ethereal landscapes, abstract expressionism, humor infused bronze figures, encaustics, to Americana, Southwestern photography and realism. While formally and visually distinct, the artists share a nuanced exploration of their musical inspirations, styles and mediums and the subjective excesses their muses enable.
