Library Art Gallery
Among Abdurrahman Kaplan's paintings of horsemen, angels, devils and Anatolian idols,
there are some musicians playing instruments. What would happen if those musicians jumped
out of the paintings and decided to play jazz for the visitors in the Bilkent Library Art
Gallery? There would be an atmosphere of warmth and pleasure for the eyes and ears. That's
what happened on Wednesday, November 8 at 3 p.m. The jazz trio, "Talk is Cheap",
featuring faculty members, David Butcher (FAE), electric guitar; Erin Maloney (SAL), piano
and vocals; and Jeremy Salt (POLS), clarinet; soothed the souls of the forty some audience
members with a repertoire of popular jazz songs. Listening to such classics as "The
Girl from Ipanema","Fly Me to the Moon", "The Autumn Leaves" and
a few Nora Jones favorites among Kaplan's colorful depictions of Turkish culture and
history, brought new dimensions to the connotations of library. In the future, library art
gallery coordinator, Atilla Güllü, says he is planning to "rock the library"
with more fusions of art and music. Why not join us next time?
