Description: In this enchanting evening of art and song, discover Artemisia Gentileschi (1593-1652), the first recognized female painter in the world of post-Renaissance art. Fascinated by her life, "Tragedy to Triumph...The Story of Artemisia" is Linda's first multi-media conceptual piece. The artist's life, aspirations, and masterpieces are captured through glorious folk music, haunting vocalized harmonies, and visual art projections. Ms. Smith, a Chicago-based classically trained folk singer and songwriter, performs this inspirational show in a quintet format with piano, guitar, bass, violin, flute, drums, and vocals, while projecting images of Artemisia's paintings.
