About the artist:
Rich is a local freelance artist who spends his days and nights creating art for a living. He’ll be featuring a few pieces from his favorite people series and some other worldly pieces straight out of the weird factory that’s in his head. Rich does a lot of work with area bands and promoters and is an active part in the local music scene. His band The Wasted Strays will be laying down some hopped up Street country for the opening night so put on your drinking shoes and come out and support local art!
The dudes in Wasted Strays are all long-time punk rock veterans, having played in or currently playing in such bands as Scum Element, DOA, Death Sentence, Legion of Goons, Excessives, Real McKenzies, Rampage, Gold Stars are for Succkers and the greatest Iron Maiden tribute band in the world, Powerclown. Whilst all of Wasted Strays members are accomplished musicians in their respective musical endeavours, when they are Wasted Strays they combine to form a street-country Voltron.
