Impart · Improvised Art and Music
Impart is a live evening of improvised piano and painting.
In front of a seated audience Liam Pitcher will play, on a grand piano, a single, highly varied improvisation in a contemporary melodic & abstract classical style.
At the same time, inspired by the music, Dragana Jevtovic will paint a large canvas in an acrylic medium.
When the concert begins, the canvas will be empty. At the end of the approximately two hour joint improvisation, the artwork will be complete.
The process is reactionary, and the music will directly inspire the artwork.
The improvisatory nature of the performance allows for no strict ending time, and the performance will conclude when the artists reach an unspoken resolution.
At the end of the evening the painting will be for sale (with a surprise bonus for the purchaser).
Guests will then have an opportunity to discuss the evening with the artists.
