Kreeps artist features in "Lyric" Exhibition
Kreeps visual artist Robert "Nix" nixon has been invited to take part in a special exhibition curated by Glenn Barr. The theme of "Lyric 2012" centres around artist's relation to music and the inspiration that feeds them. As Glenn put it:
"Music and it's lyrics can always stimulate our emotions as well as leave us contemplating a visual narrative. Artists have always been known to use lyrics as inspiration and with this have created some of the greatest works in the world. This exhibition will illuminate the artist's personal transcription from a song lyric to canvas." - Glenn Barr
For this exhibition Glenn had one simple request for each artist: Each piece of art must be 12x12 inches, paying homage to the timeless beauty that can fit on the cover of a vinyl record. Each artist has been given free reign to draw inspiration from their favourite artist, album, song, or lyric and put their personal interpretation to canvas.
we're proud of Nix for being chosen to take part in this prestigious show and even more so that Nix chose Kreeps song "Funeral Home Blues" as his inspiration for the piece he subimtted.
artist reception at the show is from 6-11 on saturday april 21st at 323 East in royal oak, Michigan. the exhibition is on view from april 21st - may 16th 2012. This event is free and open to the public.
