Randy Blythe is a name that’s been tossed around quite a bit in the media in recent years, owing mostly to his being charged with manslaughter in the Czech Republic. But more than that we know him as the frontman to one of modern metal’s most provocative bands, and as a writer, filmmaker, and photographer, among other things.
Today, the Grammy-nominated frontman of Lamb of God has announced the upcoming exhibition of his photography, D. Randall Blythe: Show Me What You’re Made Of, to take place from May 2nd to June 30th, at the Sacred Gallery NYC. The opening reception will take place on May 2nd, from 8-11 p.m.
Sacred Gallery NYC is located in Manhattan’s SoHo District at 424 Broadway on the northeast corner of Broadway and Canal.
In addition to his work with Lamb of God, Blythe is the author of the forthcoming memoir Dark Days (to be published July 2015 by Perseus/Da Capo books in the U.S., and Random House in the UK and associated territories), a music critic at the highly acclaimed TheTalkhouse.com, has acted in movies filmed in America and Asia, and periodically composes music for the Richmond Ballet.
Blythe commented on his photography exhibition:
I’ve been lucky enough to travel literally around the world several times for my job, and for the last few years I have carried a camera with me everywhere I go. Show Me What You’re Made Of will showcase fine art prints of what I consider to be some of the most striking images that I have collected, both at home and during my travels. The body of work is quite diverse, and in an attempt to highlight that diversity, all the photos will be shown in custom made frames made of reclaimed wood, adding to the individuality of each piece. The frames are made by my friend, Richmond, VA musician Greta Brinkman (former bassist for Moby, The Deborah Harry Band, White Cross, and currently with RVA doom merchants Drug Lord). I am especially pleased to have my first exhibit at Sacred Arts, a gallery with such a solid connection to my community- the underground music and arts scene. I hope to see as many of you as possible at the opening, so come on out, check out some photography, and be sure to say hi to me and Greta!
