    If you love the piano, you will enjoy and probably get a chuckle out of Piano As Art, a three way collaborative exhibition by 2 artists, Penny Putnam and Shauna Holiman, and Faust Harrison Pianos. 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. (Much like playing chamber music.) You can see all the art and the exhibition schedule at http://www.pianoasart.com.
    “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
