Terry Hutchinson and Melody Saunders collaborate to feature many of the most prominent musicians of the Oregon Symphony and  Portland Jazz Scene. Twenty nine musicians featured on this extraordinary artwork include local celebrities such as Norman Leyden, Dave Frishberg, Carlos Kalmar, and Rebecca Kilgore. Melody Saunder's black and white photographs capture each musician's personality, with many photographs toned in silver and gold. Terry Hutchinson's Luster Glaze Paintings employ a new technique, combining photographs with specially glazed ceramic tile, to chronicle each musician in an exquisite work of art.

A  30 minute black and white film entitled "Instrumental Treason" by Jake Elsas, will be shown. This film is best described as "a musical mutiny" between jazz and symphony musicians. "Instrumental Treason" will be shown continuously throughout the evening.
