“Absolute Music”: Pop-up Print Show at Rockefellers Houston; Big Print Exhibition at Antone’s in Austin February 2017


Big news here and at http://www.theheightsgallery.com! I will start having exhibitions of my prints November 25, 2016 (AKA Black Friday, y’awl) at Rockefellers in Houston, Texas. This is a pop-up in conjunction with Eric Tessmer’s headlining show, and will feature the posters above as well as 13″ X 19″ archival prints. All will be for sale and a percentage will benefit the Houston Food Bank. Then in February 2017 I will have a major print exhibition in the beautiful upstairs space at Antone’s in Austin, Texas. There will be music (stay tuned)and more charity events, too. The three posters will be for sale there, and I will be adding a fourth very soon. The guys on these posters are some of the coolest, nicest and most talented musicians I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing and photographing: Eric Tessmer, Nalle Colt of Vintage Trouble and of course Stevie Ray Vaughan! These exhibits are in support of my upcoming photo book on SRV, his influences, and the great players who’ve come after. You can bet Eric and Nalle will be in there-in fact, Nalle wrote one of the Forwards for the book, as did guitarist and songwriter extraordinaire David Grissom-many thanks to them. I should mention here that Zeiss is supporting me, and many of the newer images including the color ones on the posters were taken with Zeiss lenses, which most definitely rock. I am working on the other companies as of 11/10/2016. 🙂
In case you’re wondering about that title: “Absolute Music”, it comes from a quote in Herman Hesse’s Demian: “I like listening to music, but only the kind you play, absolute music, the kind that makes you feel that someone is rattling at the doors of heaven and hell.” If there’s a better description of Stevie Ray Vaughan’s playing, well, I hope I wrote it in my book. We shall see, it’s photographs first, second, and third!
