Guzu Gallery Returns For A Second Spin Of Their Music Themed Show: “Deep Cuts 2”

This weekend down in  Austin, Texas, GUZU GALLERY will be hosting an all new music themed exhibit.  It’s a follow up to last years successful show and it’s called “Deep Cuts 2.” The concept is simple, they asked each artist participating to pay  tribute to a beloved music icon, cult hero or legend in the form of an album-sized screen printed poster.

Each print is uniform in that they are all 12.5″ X 12.5″ prints, (album cover size) and each one will only run you a reasonable $25!  Here is what Guzu had to say about the event over on their site.

Austin, Texas…the “Live Music Capital of the World.”  On any given night you can find live music playing up and down the streets of downtown Austin. Add to this the annual music festivals and rich history of the city’s music scene and you begin to understand where Austin gets its well-deserved moniker. This fall, we pay homage to our hometown’s strong musical tradition with a sequel to last year’s successful music-themed art show, Deep Cuts.

We absolutely LOVE this print by Sal.  This N.I.N. album was one that blew our mind when it first came out and Sal has given it new life with this awesome image. Here is what Sal had to say about his print.  “Trent Reznor’s is my absolute favorite musician, and to me, it felt appropriate to take a look back at where he started. Pretty Hate Machine is basic compared to NIN’s later releases, but the building blocks are there and show a true artist at his most primal! It was fun to try and strip the album cover’s iconic elements and personify the album’s music into something abstract!”

If you are in the Austin area, the opening reception is Friday, September 26th from 7-10PM and the exhibit will remain on display until October 20th. For those of you that can’t make it to the gallery, artwork will be available on the official  GUZU GALLERY STORE beginning  Monday, September 29th around Noon CST.
