"Painting The Music" brings together local musicians and area painters for a showcase whereby the visual artist paints an entirely new work of art on stage with the singer-songwriter, using inspiration from the first song of the musician’s live set. The viewers’ energy becomes part of the art as audience members are encouraged to interact with the musicians and artists, becoming the third arm of a creative triad. The paintings are auctioned throughout the evening, with the artists setting minimum bids in a silent auction, and taking home 100% of the proceeds of the sale.
What a great event at a great venue! Check out the timelapse video below of artist Josh Yavelberg painting Stefan Alexander’s song “Two Cents”. You can see more photos on our FB page too!
8/23/14 VILLAGE AT LEESBURG RECAP
The first outdoor and free to the public PTM show occurred at the Artful August festival at Village at Leesburg. It POURED rain for most of the day, but we did the best we could huddled under the tent! A great time was still had by all! Many more photos will be posted soon the PTM Facebook Page!
All of the photos are posted on THIS photo album on our Facebook Page. The timelapse video below shows DC-based artist Sardar painting a beautiful interpretation of Dan Fisk's song "A Thousand Love Songs". It was a great night! And thank you to Susana Travieso for filming!
Lots of pictures have been posted from the show on the PTM Facebook Page. HERE is a link the album. Below you will find one of the timelapse videos for the show.

Wow. That could be the one word to describe what occurred at The Atlas on this very special night. The musicians were incredible, the artists were amazing. We took a lot of photos (posted on the PTM Facebook Page), and tons of video, including time-lapse photography of each painting. All of that will be posted in due time! Here are some photos and info about the 3 songs and the paintings they inspired.
