Traveling rock n’ roll art show ‘brings back a lot of memories’


Where can you find a photograph of Mick Jagger with his trousers pulled down standing next to Keith Richards picking his nose?

You could find the photograph, called “Boxers or Briefs?,” displayed at the Rock Art Show in the barn behind Jedediah Hawkins Inn in Jamesport this weekend — and you’d be able to find it in your own home for $295.

Area residents browsed photographs of and pieces of artwork created by rock and roll legends at The Rock Show, a traveling art exhibit organized by Right Brain Revenue, a Pennsylvania-based promotional agency.

“Very few people know Paul McCartney paints,” said curator Scott Segelbaum. “[The exhibit] shows another dimension of these artists’ creativity.”

A handful of residents at the show didn’t know musical greats like Paul McCartney and Jerry Garcia painted and drew, including Laura Baker, a mixed media artist from Orient.

“I’ve never seen this before,” Ms. Baker said as she browsed through paintings made by Jimi Hendrix. “I can’t play music for a damn but I’m an artist so this is very cool. It’s nice to see the other creative things they’ve done.”

About 200 photographs, paintings, vinyl records and posters were for sale Saturday afternoon at The Rock Show, each collectible ranging in price from $5 to $4,000.
