Tex Crawford Outsi Der Art Opening, With Music Of David Tyberg says
The Artistic Mothership of Tex S. Crawford is landing an earthly visitation in Candler Park. Behold! https://www.facebook.com/tex.crawfordscreations
Tex Crawford is a self-taught artist who transforms reclaimed roofing tin into whimsical animals, creatures, and robots. A former sound engineer and accomplished musician, Crawford believes that everything around us produces frequencies and vibrations. Being receptive to these good forces, a person can draw inspiration from the cosmos. Crawford avoids power equipment and implements. "Primitive tools keep me rooted in the here and now," says Crawford. "I channel the Universe through my work."
Crawford also makes assemblages, talismans, shadow boxes, and whirligigs from found objects he and his wife Donna collect as they explore the back roads of rural Georgia.
Crawford's work can be seen at the Lyndon House of Athens, Georgia and Roots Up Gallery, Savannah, Georgia. He has been included in shows at Georgia Museum of Art, Athens, Georgia; Quinlan Visual Arts, Gainesville, Georgia; and OCAF, Watkinsville, Georgia. The artist exhibits at festivals throughout the Southeast. His home and studio are located in Hull, Georgia.

When not serving as an accompanist for First E's Sunday Celebrations of Life, David Tyberg, musician is probably best known for portraying Prof. Dimitri von Stadberg, the globe-trotting singer/bassist of Atlanta-based time-traveling prog pop band, The Extraordinary Contraptions. In his solo songwriting, Mr. Tyberg explores social identities such as neuro-divergence and non-monogamy, pushing against their related systems of oppression by portraying them in a favorable and accepting light, all presented within a variety of stylistic contexts ranging from funk to folk. He also writes about the intersectionality of sugary desserts and the gluteus maximus. He consistently wows audiences with his musical prowess, golden pipes, and onstage exuberance.
Joined by spouse, longtime musical collaborator, and fellow Contraption Sharon Burdick on piano, Tyberg will open the evening on double bass with instrumental jazz favorites by which to admire the singular art of Tex Crawford before switching between bass and tenor banjo to present selections from his solo work and a smattering of Contraptions favorites in a more formal concert setting.
