The Aloft Harlem Hotel features an exhibition of a solo artist each month and that practice continues this month with Charly Palmer’s High Notes, Blue Notes and Honky Tonk Exhibition on view at the Aloft Harlem from February 16-March 14, 2012.
The exhibition features 15 medium-sized paintings of seminal figures who have shaped music history and have inspired the artist, Charly Palmer.
Palmer is known for his interpretation of some of the most respected music icons of our time celebrating the marriage between music and visual art, and the influence both have on each other. Palmer has been the subject of more than twenty solo exhibitions and has been included in numerous group exhibitions in galleries across the United States.
