Piano As Art

Faust Harrison Pianos

207 West 58th Street
New York, New York 10019


Opening May 10. Piano As Art is a three way collaborative exhibition by 2 artists, Penny Putnam and Shauna Holiman, and Faust Harrison Pianos, New York City. The art, inspired by piano parts and in many cases made up of the parts themselves (antique ivories, hammers, oddly shaped inner mechanicals and bits of casework) is entirely collaborative, the artists having abandoned their individual styles and notions of authorship to create together. “Fascinating for anyone interested in the piano, music or art, the sculptures of Penny Putnam and Shauna Holiman are both intricate and beguiling, taking what looks on the surface like a familiar form and transporting it into the realm of Surrealism.” John Rockwell, Former Arts Critic, New York Times
