Grant Peeples brings his visual art to Strange Brew on April 1st and celebrates with a raucus show on Sunday April 3rd at 6 pm. Concert admission is $10. Art show is free and will remain up through April and May.

The multi-media pieces in this show are essentially juxtapositions of words with objects and imagery. “The idea has been to get words---some from poems, some from songs, some just pieces of this and that---out of the confines of the printed page or digital musical formats and up on the wall,” Peeples says. “I learned that if I write-out a verse or two from a murder ballad, and then put in in an antique frame with a rusty 38 caliber Saturday night special, that a certain power is conjured up that I would never be able to mine with just a guitar and vocal.” Indeed. One’s experience with these pieces, even though they are visual, is more like listening to a song than walking up to a painting in a gallery.
