"Rock, and Other Hard Places " welcomes artist Kerry Smith to REN Gallery. In Smiths series of Gouache paintings of iconic record label and album art, the center holes are liner notes from the 1960s that often contrast the featured artist. This collection of work combines his love for album art, graphic design and fine art.
Exhibition open now. Viewings open now on Art Walk and by appointment only with a special viewing party to be held June 8th 6-9pm.
Beside Kerrys work belies other truths found in music; a powerful Freddie Mercury holding his fist in the air is featured by artist Jared Schwalb. Musician and artist Rob Grad has developed a world of self portraits that crosses genders, emotions, inner thoughts and suppositions. Creating a contrast to Kerrys works, his mixed media works are innovative and sleek in their layered plexiglass compositions. In addition to this special exhibition, REN Gallery resident artists Emmeric Konrad, Louis XXX, David Buckingham, Nicholas Tredway and Victor Wilde will have works on display with an emphasis on the newest works by Louis XXX.
