Victor Paukstelis
Sunday August 2nd at 4pm
WATCH PREMIERE  on our WATCH LIVE Page of our website:
The ever-expressive Victor Paukstelis enthralls audiences with his audio and visual interpretations of classical music. To Paukstelis, the stage is not simply a place to play, but also to pursue a deeper understanding of the art itself. Paukstelis’ paintings will be paired with his performance, drawing a sensitive connection between the two media. Do not miss this unique experience!

Birds on a Wire
24"x72"
