The Oceanside Museum of Art presents a Panel Discussion with Ellen Salk, Christopher Adler and art critic Sally Yard about "Synesthesia": Manifestations Of Energy, Paintings By Ellen Salk And Sound By Christopher Adler exhibition on Saturday, April 13 from 2:00 to 3:30 p.m.

Pulsating with energy and tension, Ellen Salk’s abstract paintings reference her interest in science, elemental forms, entropy, Minimalism and Abstract Expressionism. In collaboration with experimental sound artist Christopher Adler, Salk has designed an immersive installation that explores the vibrational quality of her images. Designed in response to Salk’s work, Adler’s music heightens the viewer’s senses eliciting a meditative and spiritual experience.

The title of the exhibition, "Synesthesia", reflects Salk’s interest of the simultaneous perception of two or more stimuli, in this case visual and sound. "Synesthesia" in art can be seen in the work of Wassily Kandinsky whose paintings explored the connections or synthesis between color and musical instruments.

According to Salk, “I imagine the sound interacting directly with the images, with the viewer being drawn from images to sound and back in an experience which will open the senses.”

The talk is free with museum admission and complimentary for OMA members.

Location: Oceanside Museum of Art: 704 Pier View Way, Oceanside, CA 92054. Google Map, 760.435.3720
