Sidney Janis Gallery, New York. Paintings by Arshile Gorky from 1929 to 1948. 5 February – 3 March 1962. Catalogue. Nothing much beats the feeling of pride when people stop and admire your art. Gaining peoples respect and admiration is just one aspect of being a successful artist. Trouble is, most of us had a very poor art education at school, and most of the great traditional methods and techniques of previous masters were lost to our generation following the “modern art” era. In addition to Red Rag Modern Art Gallery Helen Wilson has exhibited at other leading Modern Art Galleries. Each painting at Red Rag is sourced from the Helen Wilson artist studio and like all Red Rag Scottish art and Modern art it can be shipped worldwide. The brain changes that musical training entails are numerous and well-documented: they involve brain regions important for auditory processing, coordination of fast movements and cognitive control, as well as sensory-to-motor coupling mechanisms. Music increases brain plasticity, changing neural pathways. In general, trained musicians exhibit greater volume and cortical thickness in auditory cortex (Heschl’s gyrus). These regions are most likely responsible for fine pitch categorization and discrimination, as well as for temporal processing. Structural differences due to musical training extend to motor and sensorimotor cortices, to premotor and supplementary motor regions, and involve subcortical structures such as the basal ganglia and the cerebellum. This neuronal circuitry is engaged in motor control and fine motor planning (e.g., finger motions) during music performance as well as in motor learning. The involvement of brain regions that are believed to contain mirror neurons (e.g., posterior inferior frontal gyrus) during music perception is enhanced in musicians compared with nonmusicians. Differences are also observed in terms of brain connectivity (i.e., white matter). For example, musicians exhibit greater midsagittal size of the corpus callosum. This structure, supporting the interaction between the two hemispheres, may be the substrate of coordinated movement of right and left hand (e.g., for the performance of complex bimanual motor sequences). The mounting evidence from cross-sectional studies shows that brain plasticity can differentiate musicians from nonmusicians. National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC.
