Harmony & Dissonance COPA Photography Exhibit
This event has expired. This may be a recurring event, so please check the calendar in the future for updated occurrences.
The Plymouth Arts Center and sponsor, Van Horn Auto proudly present Harmony & Dissonance, a juried show featuring the works of CoPA, the Coalition of Photographic Arts. The public is invited to the festive opening reception on Friday, August 18 from 5 to 7:30 pm with awards and comments presented at 6 pm. Musical entertainment for the evening will be provided by the Gypsy Swing Chicks, Kate Pearce, Karen Mani, and Beth Munns.
For this juried exhibition, CoPA Members were invited to submit entries that each represent harmony, dissonance, or both. Ken Hanson and Paul Cebar were selected as jurors. They bring a unique perspective to the judging process, combining their affection for a wide range of musical flavors with a keen understanding of what makes an audience tick. Ken adds an element of visual expertise to the judging process, which is sure to produce a tasty show! In music, harmony is the arrangement and layering of musical notes and chords to a pleasing effect. Dissonance is a lack of harmony, a tension or clash from the combination of cacophonous elements. Both are tectonic. The harmonious and the dissonant make up our unique understanding of the natural world. But when we take sound off the table, such as with a photograph, how do we tell the story of these ubiquitous yet intangible concepts? Is there a harmonious or dissonant grammar to visual imagery? Do harmony and dissonance mutually define one another? Does the presence or lack of one amplify the other? Is there light without darkness?
