VGPL will host Eldorado at Santa Fe artist Karen Mosbacher January 2-30 in the library gallery; she will host a reception on January 3 from 4-6 pm. “Paint: Music” features 5-6 contemporary acrylic and oil paintings.


International Award-Winning American artist Karen Mosbacher paints abstract expressions of music in this exhibition. Mosbacher’s passion for classical and jazz music as well as dance and visual art has been in her soul, eyes and ears since birth. She calls jazz "The Graffiti of Music." Mosbacher says "I have always seen color in sound. The challenge was to let others experience what I do. I began to paint what I see, and these works are the result." Ms. Mosbacher shows in many galleries around the country and is also a published author of two books and a well-known children’s book illustrator. Karen lives and works in Santa Fe with her partner and canine studio assistant, Amadeus Mozart Mosbacher.
