It is a marvelous happening when an artist in one medium volunteers his or her art to help support an art form in another medium! This is exactly what happened when a gentleman from Vermont attended the North Carolina Jazz festival.
Paul Stone, a visual artist who creates beautiful images in both watercolor and oil, lives in Grafton Vt. And Topsail Island, NC. After attending a performance of the NCJF, he contacted one of our board members and volunteered to donate a painting for our annual festival raffle. This would be an oil painting created especially for the 2013 North Carolina Jazz Festival!
Mr. Stone has titled his artwork “Collaboration…an improvisation on a photograph by the late, great William Claxton”, 1927-2008, one of jazz’s most dedicated photographers.
