The sixth Annual Art of the Piano presents:
Darkness and Light

A solo piano showcase complementing the current SAM Gallery exhibit, Darks and Lights.

 The artists in this show contrast darks and lights as autumn turns to winter. Nature’s cycles, retreating to our roots, and finding home are all explored by our premier Northwest artists.” (quoted from the SAM Website description)  The SAM Gallery is free today. We invite you to explore the exhibit Darks and Lights after you experience this musical journey and share the magical connection that can exist between the visual and performing arts.
