Drummer Tim Barnes will present a live performance in conjunction with the “Audio/Optics: Tim Barnes & Letitia Quesenberry” exhibit on display through March 6 in the Visual Arts Center Gallery.

An opening reception will be held tonight from 5-6 p.m. at the VAC before Barnes’s musical performance at 7 p.m. in the Metal Shop in Howell Hall.

A one-of-a-kind exhibition fusing sound and visuals. The show features sound artist Tim Barnes and visual artist Letitia Quesenberry. Barnes’s recordings, made during a recent visit to MSU, will be compiled into a single record and played in the gallery where Quesenberry’s visual work will be featured. Quesenberry’s paintings focus on perception and the mystifying nature of optical experiences.

Support and funding provided by: MSU College of Architecture, Art + Design, MSU Department of Art, and a Mississippi Arts Commission grant award.
