Paul Stone Donates Painting to NC Jazz Festival

PG StoneVermont artist Paul Stone was so pleased with the level of jazz that he heard at the North Carolina Jazz Festival a couple of years ago, that he created an oil painting to be used as a fund raiser for the festival.  The painting, entitled “Collaboration….an improvisation on a photograph by the late, great William Claxton”, 1927-2008, one of jazz’s most dedicated photographers, was raffled at this year’s festival and earned over $1,100 for our non-profit organization.  This type of visual art benefiting audio art is in itself a wonderful collaboration!

Paul Stone, a visual artist who creates beautiful images in both watercolor and oil, lives in Grafton Vt. And Topsail Island, NC.  His works are held in numerous public and private collections, and are on exhibit at fine galleries in Vermont and Maine. For more information please go to his website
