During the month of April, Tim Blackburn of Drop Out Art and the Temporary Artists’ Guild is putting on a special exhibit here in Corvallis at our very own Interzone. If you’re not familiar with Blackburn’s art, you should be: a fantastic stencil-based graffiti artist, his work is not only proficient on a technical level, but it transcends many of the cliches that tend to bog down the genre.
As a feature of the show that goes one step further to back that up, local art ensemble Symbiotic Quintet will debut a live music composition based on a piece of Blackburn’s Drop Out Art.
Blackburn’s art is available for viewing from April 1 through April 30; the Symbiotic Quintet show is on Saturday, April 20 from 9:30 to 11:30 p.m. This is one hell of a great opportunity to see local artists merge to create something new! Interzone’s prime slice of real estate can be found at 1563 NW Monroe Avenue.
