Crash Bang and Boom: It All Comes Down to the Tunes

Working towards a new show in September, it is apt that this part of the blog starts on the 4th of July. I have been invited to exhibit, with 12 other artists, at the G-Spot Gallery in Baltimore Maryland. The show will revolve around paintings inspired by the 305 ballads collected by James Francis Child. The Ballads are a collection of some of the oldest recorded songs that are still sung today, in different variants having passed through appalachian folksongs into present day rock and even anti-folk. I've chosen to create a painting based on ballad #278 and will write about it in the upcoming weeks.
