Kerry Haith

Kerry's drawings of music have a basis in music notation stemming from her private synesthetic experience of music notation and color.  Kerry's approach to music and visual art has been shaped by her unique academic background – She received a BA in Philosophy with minor in music performance in 1994 from the University of Missouri-Columbia.  During that time, I did archaeological illustrations of Mayan artifacts on site in Belize for the University of Texas-Austin and performed at the Aspen Music Festival for two seasons.  Kerry then received an MA in Philosophy from the University of Colorado-Boulder in 1998.  Kerry's experiences with professional music performance and the study of analytic philosophy contribute significantly to her approach to time and place in her work.
