Patti Smith..."Camera Solo" photo exhibit! New album in the works!
Noted musician Patti Smith's upcoming installation of photographs titled - "Camera Solo" - is causing quite a buzz in gallery circles.
The exhibit features a jazzy collection of Black & White Polaroid prints probably inspired by ex-lover Richard Mapplethorpe - who, like pop artist Andy Warhol - was noted for his creative musings in that offbeat but rich and quirky revealing medium.
The much-anticipated unveiling is slated to open at the prestigious Wadsworth Atheneum Museum on October 21st.
Ms. Smith , by the way, has a new album in the works.
But, like any clever artist, the down-to-earth chanteuse is keeping mum about the details.
Oh, the anticipation!
Smith has never confined herself to one single art form.
In addition to being a talented musician, she is also a prolific poet and an insightful visual artist.
Rock on, Patti!
