May 7. Billed as an exploration of the interaction between visual arts and sonic arts, "Looking at Sound" is an exhibit at the newly opened Artbar Gallery curated by local musician, artist, and educator Bill Brovold. Brovold arose in the early '80s No Wave scene in New York, where he played guitar in the Rhys Chatham Ensemble before moving to Detroit and founding his own project, Larval. The visual/musical-crossover "Looking at Sound" features creative contributions by artist-musicians Pauline Oliveros, Ed Potaker, Chris Anderson, Brenda Hutchinson, Ken Butler, and Frank Pahl, as well as homemade instruments and graphic scores by the elementary school students from the "Soundclub" of Brooklyn's PS 119, where Brovold teaches. The exhibition opens with this afternoon of impromptu performances by the students and other participants. 12pm. Free. Kingston. (845) 338-2789.
