Newport Coast artist N.C. Swan is proving that art can be as much about sound as it is about seeing.
A reception for Swan and her "audible art" will be from 6 to 9 p.m. Saturday at Artist Eye Laguna Gallery, 1294-A S. Coast Hwy., Laguna Beach.
The idea of audible art came to her while she was painting a group of birds, according to a news release from the gallery. She thought incorporating sounds of birds chirping and chattering would add a new dimension to the painting.
She expanded this idea into her award-winning wave paintings, where viewers can press a button on the frame to hear sounds of waves and sea gulls.
