Jazz musicians and artists in New York have an annual festival returning to Brooklyn. The Visual Arts and Jazzfest, formerly known as Visual Expressions on Jazz, will begin this week and continue through mid-October.

This year's theme, Jazz Moods and Melodies, focuses on the relationship of the various styles of visual arts and jazz music. The festival will include the annual two-and-a-half-month-long exhibition at multiple venues in Manhattan and Brooklyn. More than 130 works will be displayed by emerging, established and master visual artists, including Tafa, Eric Girault, Ademola Olugebefola, Betty Blayton Taylor, Sadikisha Collier, Jamillah Jennings and many others whose work is dedicated to jazz music.

"Jazz music and visual arts have many similarities," said Gwendolyn Black, festival creator and producer. "This festival is very important for visual artists to get their work presented before a broad audience of art and jazz lovers, network and enable the public to see how this music has touched so many other areas of the arts."

For the past 10 years, this event has been at the forefront of presenting the visual side of jazz music.
