Attention, Patrons of the Arts!

If you're in the vicinity of Jersey City -- which is a helluva town, BTW -- this weekend you might want to check out a very interesting group art show featuring splendid new paintings by friend of PowerPop buzzbabyjesus.

The show is at a gallery and exhibition space called The Drawing Rooms (180 Grand Street in the aforementioned Jersey burg) and on Saturday and Sunday it can be viewed from 2-6pm. A certain Shady Dame and I checked it out last week and had a splendid time, including finally getting the chance to meet the auteur himself.

Here's an earlier piece by BBJ -- a self portrait, in fact -- that isn't in the show (his recent work is more abstract and architectural).

You can find out more about the exhibition -- including directions on how to get there -- at the official Drawing Rooms website over HERE. The show can also be witnessed on Thursdays and Fridays from 4-7pm, and it runs till August 16.

Meanwhile, you can find out more about BBJ (including his band The Smoove Sailors) over at his official place HERE.

Have a great weekend, everybody!

Just back from BBJ's site. He's really GOOD! Had no idea that BBJ, ornery, brutally honest commenter on this and Sal's blog had a sensitive side. People say the same about me, surprised that my painting is so "sunny" in contrast to my apparent nature. My only complaint ... he's better than me!

I have musician friends I say that about all the time.

That's close to Zeppelin Hall, I highly recommend stopping in for beer & brats.

Goddamned subversive commie artists. The influences are obvious and well chosen. Good Luck BBJ. Some nice ones, for what my non art-crowd opinion's worth. Will there be many berets and goatees at the show:-) Cheers.

May you sell out to the walls, and when you do so, sell the walls too!

I was in an internet free zone Friday and didn't see this until just now. Thanks so much for the kind words!
