In his installation, "Changing Spaces," explores how sound creates a sense of place and space.  Scholtz says "you see what is in front of your eyes but you hear what is all around you."  In the installation, real-time recordings create the musical frame of beginning and end.  Ordinary sounds take on a different meaning; a succession of sounds gives rise to harmony, rhythm and emotion.

Scholtz will be present at the opening on Thursday, Jan. 19 from 5 - 7 p.m.

A Bellingham resident, Scholtz has been a professional musician since 1974, working in many aspects of music performance, education, and recording.  He has recorded with Tom Hunter and Eric Schoenberg and provided musical accompaniment to stories told by Margaret Read MacDonald on three compact discs published by August House. Scholtz has also administered the Puget Sound Guitar Workshop for over 30 years.

Gallery IV is located on the fourth floor of the Dan Evans Library Building at The Evergreen State College. Gallery hours are Tuesday-Friday, noon - 4pm.
