Mark Andres: Drawing and Music in Dialogue

Mark Andres: Drawing and Music in Dialogue 
Thursday April 6
Free Demonstration at  7pm OSA

Visual Artist Mark Andres and classical guitarist Peter Zisa collaborate on an evening of improvisational drawing and music to explore the relationship between these art forms.  Andres will draw images projected on a screen and Zisa will play guitar as the two engage in a wordless conversation of music and image.

Dr. Peter Joseph Zisa is an award-winning performer on the six and eight string guitar. Reviewers and audiences across the U.S. and abroad describe Zisa’s musicianship as “dynamic, sensitive, authentic, inspiring and emotionally expressive”. Zisa is grateful for his studies with David Grimes, and with legendary performers Maestro Andrés Segovia, José Rey de la Torre, José Tomas, and Oscar Ghiglia, who have contributed to his musical development.  Zisa holds a Masters Degree in classical guitar performance and a Ph.D. in Education. 

Mark Andres is a painter and filmmaker.  His paintings are in the collection of the Portland Art Museum, The Hallie Ford Museum and the Maryhill Museum.  He is represented by Augen Gallery of Portland.  Andres is also an award winning filmmaker, whose silent animated films have received Best Animated Feature Film awards from The Independent Filmmakers Showcase, Hollywood Boulevard Film Festival and the California Film Awards.
