CULTURAL ARTS CENTER WILL FEATURE “THE B SIDE” GROUP EXHIBIT
(Tuscaloosa, Ala.) “The B Side” group exhibit will be hosted by The Arts Council of Tuscaloosa at the Dinah Washington Cultural Arts Center during October. The display, composed of works by 13 Tuscaloosa, Birmingham and Nashville artists, will open with a reception on Oct. 3 from 6 – 10 p.m. during First Friday and will conclude on Oct. 31, 2014. Two musical groups, The Infinite Monkey Typing Pool and the Alabama Blues Project, will be performing during the opening reception.
The subject matter in this second annual B Side exhibit will be composed of artists’ visual music-themed interpretations, covering all genres from country to rock and jazz. Tony Brock, B Side Art Show originator and organizer, asked each artist to produce at least two pieces of art of their choice and style, interpreting songs, designing faux album covers, painting portraits of musicians or anything music-related. The title of the exhibit originated with the B Side, or flip side of vinyl albums and 45s. At times the B Side was an undiscovered gem, with little airplay but a good alternative to the more mainstream. The B Side art show provides an art alternative in the visual sense.
Artists whose works will be included in the exhibit are JenX, Tony Brock, Chris Davenport, Tony Bratina, Tony Tavis, Anjeanette Illustration, A.L. Swartz, Shweta Gamble, Bruce D. Andrews, Jeff Bertrand, Tingler, Joe Rossomano, and Charles V. Bennett.
Gallery hours are weekdays from 9 a.m. – 12 noon and 1 p.m. – 4 p.m. Admission is free.
