The Yellow Springs Arts Council presents Synesthesia: Rock n’ Roll Renaissance by artist and musician Ryan Henry, guitarist of rock group The Show. An opening event will be held on Saturday, July 16 from 6-9pm at the YSAC Gallery and Exhibition Space, 309 Xenia Ave. The evening will include a collection of Henry’s original concert posters in mixed media including collage, marker, and screen-print as well as contributions from guest artists. Henry’s design derives influence from Art Noveau and Psychedelic poster genres. Henry’s band, The Show, will perform live during the opening event at 6:30pm and again at 8pm.
The Show, a Springfield-Yellow Springs based trio, also features Matt Housh on drums and vocals and Jessica Kinzer on keyboards and lead vocals.
