FALLBROOK – Fallbrook area residents interested in art and music recently shared a similar bond when the Fallbrook Art Center and Fallbrook Music Society collaborated for an afternoon reception "Blending Art and Music."
Participants at the event were invited to appreciate the 14th Annual Signature American Watermedia International Exhibition while enjoying a glass of prosecco and tasty hors d'oeuvres, accompanied by music presented by noted Fallbrook classical guitarist and teacher Ron Freshman. A highlight of the afternoon was an insightful presentation by internationally known artists Ken and Stephanie Goldman.
The prestigious World of Watercolor and Beyond Show featured 78 original watermedia works by artists who hail from across the U.S. and abroad, all of whom hold Signature Level Membership status in one or more recognized U.S. Societies – truly "The Best of the Best."
Representing all forms of watermedia in a wide range of subject matter, technique and style, from experimental to traditional, this show was developed by the Fallbrook Art Center and is a one-of-a-kind show, not presented anywhere else in the world. The show Juror was Robin Erickson, California, AWS, NWS, SDWS, CWS, WHS, WW, TWSA.
Fallbrook Music Society unveiled a Sneak Preview of the 46th Annual concert series – a collection of eight concerts featuring the highest levels of professionally-trained musicians. In addition to classical music genre programming, most of the concerts will feature a few twists – music outside the classical genre!
Bob Freaney, president of Fallbrook Music Society, made a special announcement of the new season's highlight: the much-anticipated return of Redlands Symphony Orchestra to Fallbrook's Bob Burton Center after a 10-year hiatus.
One objective of this visual arts and music collaboration is to increase awareness of the wealth of cultural opportunities available in Fallbrook and help build audiences of the future through unique and diverse cultural and emotional experiences.
This new alliance will help lead each organization to new marketing opportunities, increased awareness and ultimately, expanded and ongoing support and patronage for the cultural arts in Fallbrook. With this mutual partnership, the plan is to create a community of supporters with a sense of purpose working together towards a common goal of furthering arts and music appreciation for Fallbrook and its surrounding communities.
