Exhibition

Exhibit by the Estonian Theatre and Music Museum "Arvo Pärt - Renowned and Unknown"

Arvo Pärt is one of those composers in the world whose creative output has significantly changed the way we understand the nature of music. Since 1976, his unique tintinnabulicompositions have established a new musical paradigm and introduced an approach to composing that he is still using today. And, although there is no school that follows him, nor does he teach, a large part of the music of the second half of the 20th century has been strongly influenced by Pärt’s tintinnabulicompositions. 

Modern Faces by Robin Ashley Jones

"I love to paint because of the limitless possibilities you can create. Painting is very important to me because of the culture and being able to participate in it creates complete freedom. The portraits in this exhibition represent the experience of living in a diverse and multi-cultural city and seeing the faces of people from all over the word during everyday interactions.”
Robin has exhibited with Workman Arts for over a decade and has had numerous shows at The Show Gallery in Toronto.
