On Thursday, July 8 from 4 to 8 p.m., Carver Hill Gallery, 264 Meadow St., will hold a musical opening of “Rhapsody in Hue,” a show of art dedicated to and inspired by music. All of the work will have the common theme of “the audible art” of music. Fifteen artists from Maine to Prague will be exhibiting.

The show will open with a performance by the accomplished fiddler Lissa Schneckenburger and her guitarist, Bethany Waickman, from 4 to 6 p.m. Fiddler and singer Lissa Schneckenburger has been described as a master of moods; a winsome, sweet-voiced singer who brings new life to old ballads and a skillful, dynamic fiddler who captures the driving rhythm and carefree joy of dance tunes old and new. Schneckenburger has toured internationally and is known to perform with some of New England’s favorite musicians.

The opening will wrap up from 6 to 8 p.m. with singer, songwriter and pianist Gintare’ Jautakaite of Belfast, playing Yarkitecture Design’s Yamaha F11 piano. In the early 1990s, while residing in Oxford, England, Gintaré, as she is known onstage, drew attention of famous producer Gus Dudgeon (who produced Elton John for many years, David Bowie and the Beach Boys). They began collaboration, producing her songs “Butterflies,” “Trancenavigation,” “Hysteria” and others for her first album.

Gintaré recorded and co-produced her own music with many distinctive artists and producers such as Gaeton Schurrer (Madonna), Adam Wakeman (Annie Lennox, Travis), Andrew Claxton (Dead Can Dance), Neil MacLallan (Prodigy) and many others. She is working on another album due to be released in late summer.

“Rhapsody in Hue” will run through Aug. 2. Gallery hours are Mondays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, call 236-0745. Carver Hill also has a new Rockland location at 338 Main St., which is open daily; call 594-7745.
