ARTICLE EXCERPT: Among the various landscape and figure paintings scattered in the studio of Nick Oberling and Jennifer Li, one piece sticks out. A delicate silver violin sits unfinished and, every once in awhile, Oberling will lift it off the workbench and awkwardly affix it to his easel.
Oberling will be doing that more often in the next few weeks because the decorated violin is due to arrive at the Glacier Symphony and Chorale’s office by May 1. There it will be gathered up with 11 other violins to be auctioned off this summer as a fundraiser for the symphony, now in its 29th season. Before the auction, however, the 12 violins will be placed on display throughout the valley.
