This special art exhibit will take place on First Friday, February 6th from 5-9pm and Saturday February 7th from 12-6pm in the beautiful gallery space around the corner at 115 Salem Ave right across from the Taubman Museum.
This DUAL Show and Signing will also feature a collection of oil paintings that Richard has been working on that are truly amazing. And Robbi will be showing some of her iconic Grateful Dead images from the last 30 years as well as her more current work!
“Renowned artist Richard Biffle was inspired by album art as a youth and later began his career by selling art out of his van while following The Grateful Dead around the country. Now, more than 20 years later, most of his works have sold out and are in high demand. Biffle utilizes a variety of mediums including oils, acrylics, pastels, and computers. He is most well known for his poster art, working with bands such as The Grateful Dead, The Dead, The Other Ones, Carlos Santana, The Black Crowes, Widespread Panic, Jerry Garcia, Phil Lesh, Rat Dog, Gov’t Mule, Warren Haynes, Yonder Mountain, Hot Tuna, Allman Brothers, CSN&Y, Ekoostik Hookah, Paul Simon, Deep Purple, Blues Traveler, Robert Randolph and the Family Band, Cheap Trick, The Joplin Estate, Widespread Panic, The Jimi Hendrix Estate, SOJA, Dark Star Orchestra, YMSB, Mickey Hart, Bruce Hornsby, Loggins and Messina, Telluride, Brothers of a Feather, Tim Reynolds, Little Feat and more including Marvel Comics. “I’ve had a lot of fun in the rock ‘n’ roll business,” Biffle said. “It’s a seedy business and it can get nasty, but it’s the nature of the beast. It has been a fascinating world.”To learn more on the works of Richard Biffle visit: http://
“Robbi Cohn has been photographing musicians since 1984, specializing in images of the Grateful Dead. Her body of work is extensive and prolific and includes many other artists besides the Dead: Bob Dylan, Jefferson Airplane, Rolling Stones, Bruce Hornsby, Sheryl Crow and hundreds of other performers. Many of her images are iconic and have appeared across the gamut of musical art. Robbi’s work has appeared in Deadbase, Relix Magazine and a myriad of other media. She has done CD work for Bruce Hornsby, Bob Weir, Phil Lesh and Steve Winwood. Her images have been used for officially released stamps from Mongolia and Montserrat and have also appeared on J Garcia merchandise hangtags. She was the first photographer to have ever been licensed by the Grateful Dead and is the only photographer who still retains licensing. Robbi’s primary motivation has been to “preserve the memories” and she continues to capture images from the music she so dearly loves. Music is Robbi’s rasison d’etre! We hope you enjoy these one of a kind slices of musical history!” – via Robbi’s Site http://www.deadimages.com/

Here is the write-up that Mike Allen of The Roanoke Times did for the last DUAL Show :
On Wednesday, January 21st, come hang out and chill awhile…. Meet and Greet my good friend Barefoot Wade prior to his show at Martin’s Downtown
Wade, who is one of my Favorite People in the world bc he is full of Silly Fun, describes himself as a “Multi Instrumentalist Genre Defying Nutjob”… He is a “One Man Caribbean Jam Band” that never fails to entertain! He does a unique show involving several instruments in which he “Loops” together while singing, smiling and joking with the crowd.
