Wax + Wood is the perfect ‘arty’ topic of conversation this holiday season. It’s paint mixed with wax mixed with grooves and strokes and spins. All the artwork in this month’s gallery exhibit has been constructed from or on musical paraphernalia, most of it vinyl.
The pieces range from long legged beauties to wonderfully warped wallflowers to classic portraits. Some highlights include Beverley Hawksley’s LP beauties, Kevin House’s travelling tamborine and a set of portraits titled Six Shooter Long Players, painted by the skilled hand of Juno-nominated, guitar afficianado, Kurt Swinghammer. Kurt captured the the faces of seven Six Shooter artists, matching their mugs carefully with the vinyl records he painted them onto. Like Martin Tielli on a Jane Sibbery album and Christine Fellows paired with a Veda Hille release.These portraits are like the ultimate wall trophies for the proverbial record hunters (and the ultimate Six Shooter fan).
