On May 11, Bridge Art Space will host a reception for Powell St. John, featuring music by Mr. St. John and his friends. It will be a memorable evening of acoustic joy, along with some exceptionally pleasing art.
Powell St. John was formed as a musician in the Austin folk scene of the late 1960s, when he played in a band with Janis Joplin (who later had a megahit with one of his songs, “Baby Bye Bye”). Powell has been inducted into the Texas Music Hall of Fame, and is a recording artist for Tompkins Square Records.
Powell is also an exceptional visual artist, and Bridge Art Space is proud to be presenting a show of his works on paper in our Store Front Gallery, with works for purchase on display from May 11 through the month of June.
Here are some images of Powell’s work to whet your appetite:
We’re also happy to share video of Powell’s recent performance of his original songs at Stranded Records in Oakland on March 1 2012. Enjoy!
The show will also feature additional work by famed exotic erotic comic artist (a Bridge Art Space resident artist), Vincent Stephens, also known as Ramstar.
