The 5th Annual Painted Violin Has Been Unveiled!

The 2023-2024, 5th Annual Painted Violin Project entitled, “E’tude Pour Un Ange” (“Study for an Angel”) was unveiled on August 24th at the EMMA Concert Association’s 45th Anniversary Season Kickoff Party for hosted at the Waterworks for Season Subscribers. Created by local St. Augustine artist, Per Hans Romnes, the violin was transformed into an ethereal vision consisting of the mixed media elements of photography and decoupage on a painted canvas.

This piece was awarded the “Most Creative” award in this year’s Fall Members Show. It will also be on display in the Lewis Auditorium lobby during all of the EMMA Concerts and starting in October at Butterfield Garage Art Gallery. The piece can be displayed on the included decorative easel or hung on the wall.
