Tonight, Presence II Productions Gallery of Decorative Arts and Design presents Romance with Rock and Roll with Royalty. This is an art gallery that features an interesting little twist; you can wear and
interact with the art. Rock Lorde, as it was formally called, was put together by Meridith Lorde and Kelly Vitolo and features items including picks, guitar strings and amps from many rock and roll
artists. The list of Rock and Roll alum includes Wally Palmer, Brad Elvis and Rich Cole of The Romantics, Clem Burke of Blondie, Elliot Easton from The Cars, Skid Marx of Seatbelts and Flirt, Rick Danger, and Chloe Orwell of The Handcuffs. This is essentially a chance to wear what you hear.
The best part is that this gallery will be featuring prints for purchase from the famous Joe Gall a.k.a. Camera Jesus. This is the first time that he has ever shown his work in this form and made it
available for purchase. If you have even been to my house, you know that I am a huge fan and my walls are covered in prints that I have bought over the years. From his concert photos to his recent love affair with the city of Detroit, Joe has made himself the face of photography in this city. I recently purchased two prints from his Detroit series and cannot wait to invest in a few more.
To top it all off, this event is free and features treats from Just Baked Cupcakes. The gallery is located at 1274 Library Street - 1A in Detroit. The gallery will be open from 8-10 p.m.. Make sure to get there early because I have a feeling that Joe’s prints will sell fast. Everyone wants to take home a piece of Camera Jesus these days!
