January 29, 2018 – The Widmann Gallery at King’s College will present “A Visual Playlist” by Melissa Short. The exhibition will be on display from February 25 to March 22.

“A Visual Playlist,” as its name suggests, is a 25-piece oil paint series inspired by music, each piece represents a different song. Short can “feel” music, she experiences a neurological phenomenon known as Synesthesia, meaning she experiences shapes, colors and textures in her mind.

“I hope that viewers see the vibrant, beautiful colors that carry a cadence in my mind. My work represents subconscious in its purest form, it transcends the traditional interpretation of experience, representing a deep connection with music and the colors circling around, flowing in a mixture of hues, textures and movements,” the Honesdale resident said.

A reception will be held in the Widmann Gallery, Sheehy-Farmer Campus Center, on Friday, March 8, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

The exhibition is free and open to the public. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The gallery is closed on national holidays and during scheduled breaks throughout the academic year.
