Sound Machines at Salmon Arm Art Gallery
August 10, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 11:00 am on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until August 21, 2021
Salmon Arm Art Gallery is pleased to present Sound Machines, an exhibition exploring the intersection of sound, music, voice and noise. Seven artists using mixed media and digital audio work are featured; Daryl Kehler, Alison Beaumont, Doug Buis, Daniela O’Fee, Lucas Glenn, Heather Yip and Louis Thomas. Their installations range from participatory music-making experiences with unusual materials, to eavesdropping on quiet conversations being held between two creatures. Sound can evoke emotion, recall a memory, or express the bones of a musical experience. This audio exhibition permits visitors to create their own compositions with art objects, or experience existing sound patterns presented by the artists. Through the interactive works, the visitor will understand new ways in which sound impacts our social, cultural and personal space.
Sound Machines opens on Saturday, July 3, 2021 with an all-day opening reception. Meet the artists and sample the sounds from 11am to 4pm, while observing PHO protocols and capacity limits in the Gallery. The virtual artists’ talk will be published on Salmon Arm Arts Centre’s YouTube channel on Thursday, July 15.
The exhibition runs until August 21, 2021 from Tuesday to Saturday 11am to 4pm. Admission is by donation. The Art Gallery is grateful to exhibition sponsor Song Sparrow Hall, the new performing arts venue and recording studio located in downtown Salmon Arm. Additional support is provided by Canada Council of the Arts, City of Salmon Arm, BC Direct Access and BC Arts Council.
