10 Local "Artists of Note"

Using violins as their canvases,
10 local "artists of note"
were invited to transform violins
into unique works of art.

Artists prepared the violins,
sanding off the varnish to

Strings and chin rests were
removed from the instruments
are and replaced upon
completion of the painting.
