Art Reach Guitar Auction Until Oct 3rd: Dreams of Music
By Chantal Sicile-Kira
One of the things Jeremy loves about Art Walk is the opportunity to give back to the Art community. Jeremy recently painted his second guitar to be auctioned off to benefit Art Reach. The proceeds of guitars painted by participating artists benefits Art Reach’s free and low-cost visual arts programs that serve youth at K-12 schools and community centers throughout San Diego County that don't otherwise have funding for art programs.
Painting gives Jeremy such pleasure, and painting guitars combine his love of painting with his love of music. When Jeremy listens to music, he sees the different notes, instruments and voices in colors, thanks to his gift of synesthesia.
The vision behind Jeremy’s painted guitar is Dreams of Music, inspired by “My Shot” from the musical Hamilton. It is Item #17 in the Guitar Art Auction which is now open until October 3rd. You can bid on Jeremy’s guitar here.
Here is Jeremy’s description of the meaning of the colors he used on the guitar:
