Art on Record, an exhibit showcasing local artists’ paintings on vinyl records, comes down on Sunday at Earshot Records in Winston-Salem. Jane Buck will be curating a new series of exhibits featuring one or two artists displaying work inspired by music. The first exhibit opens on April 1 — no fooling — and features the work of Adam Casey, who works at Ssailfish Comics. Buck says that Casey’s show, Saturday Morning Cartunes, is inspired, in part, by an imagined cartoon show developed by Hanna-Barbera in the 1970s around the story of the Ramones. Brian Woodall, the lead singer of Wolves & Wolves & Wolves & Wolves, performs at the opening at 7:30 p.m.
Upcoming exhibits will showcase the work of Millicent Greason with Peter Spivak, Nick Weir, Ian Brendice and Mike Duggins.
