This month’s Experts Talk on the Carter (etc.) lecture is inspired by Stuart Davis, who once said jazz was one of the things that made him want to paint. Viewers will hear about works from the collection by Davis from experts who work with jazz music in different ways.

Stockton Helbing, an adjunct professor at the University of North Texas teaching drum set techniques, has directed a jazz masterclass to thousands of elementary, middle school, and high school students throughout the Dallas/Fort Worth area focused on celebrating the jazz masters of the past with performance and discussion. Helbing will talk about how jazz musicians and artists have influenced his own compositions and arrangements.

It wasn’t until John Bramblitt lost his vision in 2001 that he discovered a love of painting. Using his sense of touch, he taught himself how to paint by feeling paint textures, using raised lines, and haptic visualization (or "seeing" his subjects through touch). Bramblitt will discuss how jazz music is a great source of inspiration for him as he has a rare condition called synesthesia, in which sounds manifest themselves as colors in his mind.

Experts Talk on the Carter (etc.) is a monthly lecture series that occurs on the fourth Thursday of each month, January through April. Viewers can join on Zoom to hear from local experts about a work in the Carter's collection, helping us see art through the lens of their own work and passions.
