“Visual Jazz” Art Collection

Here’s a concept I’ve been wanting to try for a long time, and finally got around to doing and showing publicly: impressionistic portraits of jazz legends paired with abstract representations of some of their greatest albums.  They’re available for purchase at my Storenvy shop, and can be seen on this Saturday, December 13th at Northern Soul in Hoboken at the closing party for my “Portraits Of Awesomeness” show. ENJOY!

“Portaits Of Awesomeness” Art Show Opening Mon 10/20 in Hoboken

POA_NoSo_FBbanner

On behalf of  Northern Soul and the Northern Soul Art Project’s curator Narciso Espiritu, Jr., I invite you to the opening reception for “Portraits Of Awesomeness: The Pop-Culture Art of Craig Mahoney” on Monday, October 20th at 7pm. Nearly two dozen new, original drawings and paintings celebrating my favorites from movies, music, TV, and comedy will be on display, with most being shown publicly for the first time.

All artwork will be available for purchase. In addition, there will be drink specials, free snacks, and some of the movies and music that inspired the artwork playing throughout the night. I’m also hearing a rumor that there will be cookies. No promises, though.

If you’re the type of person who enjoys promoting other people’s work (and if you are, THANKS!), here’s the link to the facebook event page and below are some promo pics for your Instagram, twitter, and facebook feeds. Feel free to tag me on instagram (@yerolepalCraiggers) or twitter (@CraigMahoney) and hashtag it #PortraitsOfAwesomeness (Is that a long hashtag? Yes. Do I have a better idea? No. We’ll just have to live with it.).
