Galleries aren't for every artist. For NXOEED, better known as James B. Hunt, he'd prefer to reveal his art out in the open by hiding his deranged paintings where anyone can stumble upon them. Hopefully, it's you. He posts clues on his website of the alleys, ditches, trash cans, sewers and other bung holes he shoves his paintings into. But for his latest scavenger hunt, he decided to do 100 paintings inspired by 100 bands, both local and otherwise. Each painting will be hidden along with some of the band in question's music.
Just a few highlights include Playboy Manbaby, Fairy Bones, Kongos, Dry River Yacht Club, The Smothers Fuckers, Field Tripp, Captain Squeegee, decker. and approximately 92 others. At last count, NXOEED had 15 of the paintings finished and 65 bands confirmed -- naturally, he needs some folks to submit their albums. The hunt begins 7 p.m. on First Friday, October 3rd.
