Title: The Art of music - Colby Buskirk

The Art Of Music is a gallery that exhibits many forms of art that is based around one common subject, music. I have gathered a wide variety of collections that represent several textures and patterns from paintings to sculptures, all themed around music and its history. The wide time range of history this exhibit covers allows us to see how art with music has changed over the years.

This piece of art created by William Lander is a good representation of how people can imagine instruments in different ways. The pattern that the copper been bent is very unusual and different from a normal brass instrument. This would result in a different sound. Because of the continues pattern it resembles a snake which is probably why the artist named it "Copper Serpent".
The snare drum is a very common instrument in the music world. There have been many versions over the years and all producing different sounds. Another theme that snare drums over the years have in common is the design and how they look. This particular drum has several patterns on the shell. You can see triangles, stars, diamonds, and other mosaic looking symbols. Overall the shapes and designs are a good representation geometrical shapes.
This piece of art which represents a sheet of music not only does that but is also a perfect example of perspective. Because of the music staffs being curvy is makes them appear as if they were three dimensional. The artist also highlighted the words with color to help draw the viewers attention. The location of the words also make it look like they are the lyrics for the song.
This music cabinet is a not only one of the ways we have listened to music over the years, but it is also a magnificent piece of art. This music cabinet is made completely out of wood. All of the designs were hand crafted and carved into the wood. This features make this music cabinet a work of art! If you look closely you will see the detailed flowers and plants.
This poster advertising a concert for Albert King is a really good example of not only how music has changed over the years but how you can see textures in art. One thing that really sticks out in this poster is the guitar. The guitar is a perfect example of the time period this takes place in. When it comes to textures, Alberts jacket has many different textures. It also give the jacket a checkerboard pattern.
This poster advertising a concert for Richard Betts is a good representation of how different pencil strokes allow you to create multiple textures. One symbol that really sticks out is the thumbs up. If you look closer you can see the detail of thane hand. You can see the textures and it is so detailed you can even see the knuckles. One other feature that will catch your attention is that Richard Betts is in red. It is like that so that your eyes will get drawn there first.
This painting shows us a picture of Alejandro Escovedo and Bruce Springsteen performing onstage at a concert. One thing that is interesting is that there is one common color theme. Every color in this painting is a shade of red. Even though red is the common theme, the artist was able to paint a detailed picture that makes it very clear to understand what is going on in the painting.
One of musics first instruments, this 16th century harpsichord is covered in detailed art. This is a good example of foreground and background. The cover has a very large painting of what looks like a lady laying in a forest. In the background you see a coupe of men and some dogs that look like they are hunting. On the edge of the sound board you can see many smaller scenes that have been painted in fine detail all telling a different story.
This harpsichord has very fine detailed art on the body and keys. The body has a floral and plant theme painted on it along with numerous geometrical shapes from triangles to diamonds. If you look closely you can see vines. Another observation you may find is that in the middle there is some writing and both sides of the writing is geometrically symmetrical.
This sheet of music from the 15th century is an awesome example of music history and art. Before we had actual notes and bass and treble clefts music was written out in the form of squares or sometimes you just saw dots. Another feature you will notice is that certain letters are capitalized and are colored red. This could symbolize the start of a new verse or maybe a new measure?
