Lisagor’s ‘Music Makers’ on display at BPA gallery

For his latest artistic endeavor, the photographic series “Music Makers,” on display at the Bainbridge Performing Arts Gallery in July, Mike Lisagor used shapes and color to reveal the emotional tones of musical instruments and the hands that manipulate them.

Each image evolved from a photograph the artist took of Bainbridge High marching band members, fellow musicians and various street performers in Port Townsend and Banff, Canada and were then manipulated digitally before being printed on canvas, each with a black 1-inch siding.

The show opens at the First Friday Art Walk artist reception from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday, July 6 at BPA, and will remain on display throughout the month.

At the opening party, Lisagor will perform with Joe Van Dyke from 6:15 to 6:45 p.m. They have performed together for almost two years as part of Good Karma Blues and have now branched out with their own vocal, guitar and harmonica take on blues and blues-rock standards.

According to BPA, Lisagor’s life goal “is to create as many positive connections with people as possible through his pursuits of writing, speaking, music and art. Exploring his environment through a lens and with Photoshop since 1999, Mike enjoys using them to share who he is and how he sees the world. His favorite art is created when he is appreciating his surroundings instead of being distracted by worries. In these moments, he is more aware of tiny details; things don’t just pass him by.”

The artists’s photos have been in galleries including The Art Project (formerly Bainbridge Arts & Craft), as well as the Boston Globe, the Bainbridge Review, Living Buddhism, Art Access, and several online publications.

His digital graphic art has been incorporated into website designs, webinars and in numerous print publications, and he has also taught digital photography workshops.
