Artist Salon Series: Laura SpongNoonArtist Salon Series:  Laura Spong
The Artist Salon Series features gallery talks, led by working artists, about a wide range of subjects, topics and disciplines. For many years, Columbia resident Laura Spong has been considered one of the best non-objective painters. Recently, she showcased her work around South Carolina with four solo exhibitions and several group shows, including a retrospective at the USC McMaster Gallery. "I paint because I love the process of painting. To me, it’s exciting to throw a lot of paint on a clean canvas and then seek to solve the problem of creating order out of chaos. I like that with non-objective work, nothing is decided for you – no color, no design, no subject matter; the search is wide open."

Baker & Baker Art of Music: The Rothko Room: Journey in Silence2:00 p.m.Baker & Baker Art of Music: The Rothko Room: Journey in Silence
This special Baker & Baker Art of Music program features music by pianist and composer Haskell Small from Washington, D.C. Small incorporates Rothko's idea that 'tragedy, ecstasy, and doom are the only important things in art' into his music. Small says, "In this piece, I'm trying to play so quietly as to be on the very cusp of audibility, but there are occasional outbursts paralleling Rothko's passionate nature." Small presented the world premiere of The Rothko Room: Journey in Silence in February 2011 at The Phillips Collection in Washington, D.C. He is a Steinway artist who performs original compositions, classical and contemporary works. He is the piano department chair of the Washington Conservatory of Music in Bethesda, Maryland.
