Jazz Canvas – a fusion of arts, is a 2-hr. performance combining the work of musicians and a painter who begins and ends a work of art in response to the music. Each performance features a guest musician and is unique, unrehearsed and spontaneous – in the best of jazz traditions. At the end of each evening, the painting is raffled off to a lucky winner.
Tracie, Terry and artist Leigh Metteer created this project 9 years ago and have since been on tour to Texas, Chicago and several school and universities, including WSU and CWU educating people of the very unique American art form called Jazz though painting.
Tracie sometimes is a musician and sometimes is the painter (Tracie holds a Bachelor of Fine Art as well as a Music performance degree.)
