Emerging artist Julia Hamilton creates artwork inspired by her synesthesia — the ability to perceive specific shapes and colors while enjoying a non-visual stimuli (i.e. while reading a book or listening to music). «In Loving Color» invites guests to experience what Hamilton perceives when she listens to music; she uses alcohol ink paintings to create these ethereal images. Additionally, a sound dome set near one of Hamilton's pieces will give guests a chance to listen to the song that influenced that particular painting.
Experience Hamilton's “In Loving Color” at the Cardinal Health Gallery during the «Orchids: Utopia» floral show. Both shows are included with admission to the Conservatory. «In Loving Color» will be open through Feb. 18; «Orchids: Utopia» will be open through March 4.
