“THE B SIDE” GROUP EXHIBIT WILL BE DISPLAYED AT THE CULTURAL ARTS CENTER
(Tuscaloosa, Ala.) “The B Side” group exhibit will be hosted by The Arts Council of Tuscaloosa at the Dinah Washington Cultural Arts Center during May. The display, composed of works by 18 Tuscaloosa, Birmingham and Nashville artists, will open with a reception on May 6 from 5-8 p.m. during First Friday and will conclude on May 27, 2016. The band, Really Really Big Man, will be performing live during the opening reception.
The subject matter in this third 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 founder and organizer, asked each artist to produce 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 this was an undiscovered gem, with little airplay but a good alternative to the more mainstream. The 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, Shweta Gamble, Bruce D. Andrews, Jeff Bertrand, Tingler, Joe Rossomanno, Charles V. Bennett, Matt Daugherty, Kunkle, Kevin Ledgewood, Sharron Rudowski, Ruth O’Connor and Julie West.
