This Friday Willyama Art Society’s President, Dennis Hebbard, is unveiling his latest solo exhibition to the public, The Art of Music.
Stemming from his love of both music and art, the exhibition is set to include upwards of 40 of his own paintings inspired by the music of The Beatles and more specifically their ninth studio album, The White Album.
Released in November 1968, The White Album is considered one of The Beatles’ most eclectic albums with a range of musical influences adorning the album, from the heavy rock of Helter Skelter and Back in the USSR, to the gentle, almost lullaby-like tones of Good Night and While my Guitar Gently Weeps.
And much like many who grew up listening to that music, it has had a profound impact on Mr Hebbard and, in his case, his art too.
“I was an avid Beatles fan and I remember being impressed with the diversity of this release,” Mr Hebbard told the Truth.
“The music immediately created images within my mind, and I have now finally transferred these to canvas giving my interpretation of each of the 30 songs from the double album.”
Along with Mr Hebbard’s White Album artworks, there are other musically inspired artworks set to be on display.
The exhibition opens at the Willyama Visual Arts Centre on Bromide Street from 6pm Friday. All are welcome and entry is free.
