Guzu Gallery – Deep Cuts – 12″ Tributes to Our Favorite Music Heroes

One of our favorites Guzu Gallery of Austin, Texas is putting on their second gallery and its going to be Big! 12.5″ Big!

Guzu Gallery of Austin, Texas is bringing together a group of artists who love music like we do. Spring Break is the best time of the year in Austin. That’s when one of the largest, and most anticipated music festivals on the planet crashes head first into the Live Music Capital of the World.

Which festival is that? Here’s a hint in four letters: S,X,S,W. A host of travelers from around the globe swarm to our great city for ten resounding days of unrivaled entertainment. What better way to honor this melodious tradition than with a little noise of their own?

Guzu  Gallery Presents

Deep Cuts: 12″ Tributes to Our Favorite Music Heroes
March 7th through April 7th 

We asked over 20 artists to choose a beloved music icon, cult hero or legend and let his/her creativity spill to paper. There were, however, three conditions:
One, the artwork must be a screen print; two, the artwork must be album cover size 12.5″ x 12.5″ and three, the artwork must cost $25.
Oh yeah, and four — the artwork must kick ass, of course.

The opening reception will be Thursday, March 7th from 7 to 10pm and the artwork will remain up through April 7th. In the classic Guzu style, we will have live music on opening night to shake the walls and rattle the art (details to come). Complimentary beverages will be provided by Heineken and Hops & Grain Craft Brewery.

We hope to see you at the gallery but if you can’t make it out, each limited edition print will be available in our online store on Sunday, March 10th @ 3pm CST. Stay tuned for more info as the days get closer to show time!
