Experience the intersection of sound and vision at Chromatic Harmony, a captivating art exhibition featuring the vibrant paintings of Jackie Kazarian and the geometric abstractions of Yvette Kaiser Smith.

Chromatic harmony, a concept rooted in music, comes to life in this unique exhibition as it transcends the auditory realm and converges with visual art. The exhibit explores the parallel between musical atonality and visual tension, using the interplay of color to create a sensory experience that oscillates between discord and resolution.

Jackie Kazarian, known for her vibrant and kinetic paintings, takes viewers on a journey through a visual symphony where colors dance and collide. Her works capture a perpetual state of flux, oscillating between exuberance and anxiety, inviting observers to explore the emotional landscapes embedded within each stroke.

In contrast, Yvette Kaiser Smith's wall-mounted geometric abstractions provide a grounded counterpoint to Kazarian's dynamic pieces. Through meticulous attention to geometry and a singular material language, Kaiser Smith's poetic objects offer a sense of stability and structure, showcasing the harmony found in precision and balance.

Chromatic Harmony promises an immersive experience that transcends traditional boundaries of art, inviting the audience to explore the fusion of atonality and visual tension. This exhibition is a celebration of diversity within artistic expression, demonstrating how disparate elements can coalesce to create a harmonious and cohesive whole.
