NANCY MOOSLIN'S "THE COLOR OF MUSIC" EXHIBITS
AT THE UJ’S PLATT GALLERY
PAINTINGS BY JOYCE WEISS ON DISPLAY AT THE BORSTEIN GALLERY
SEPTEMBER 18 THROUGH NOVEMBER 23.
(LOS ANGELES) The full saturated color in the works of Nancy Mooslin and Joyce Weiss is startling and rich, but there the similarity ends. Mooslin explores the links between painting and music, science and the arts, making them tangible in the Platt Gallery. “Musical Primers,” a series of large oils, represent an extensive selection of chords, scales, and intervals. Digital prints titled "Dances of the Planets” combine charts of the synodic motion of the planets with appropriate musical harmonies. She is currently working on two public art projects, one for the city of Los Angeles, and one for the City of Ventura. She is collaborating with composer Steven Stucky on an audio/visual presentation of his “Concerto for Orchestra.” In 2005, Stucky received the Pulitzer Prize for music.
In the Borstein Gallery, the paintings of Joyce Weiss move between reality and the imagination. “An emotional roller coaster of passion, dreams and nightmares exist in my world of color,” she says of her work.
The public opening reception is Sunday, September 18 (3-5 p.m.) at the Platt and Borstein Galleries at the University of Judaism.The exhibit and parking are free and the summer hours are Monday-Friday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. The UJ is located at 15600 Mulholland Drive, Bel Air in the Sepulveda Pass, just east of the Mulholland Drive exit of the 405 Freeway.
