D. Randall Blythe – Richmond, Virginia-based author, photographer, actor, music critic, composer and vocalist of Grammy-nominated, chart-topping heavy metal band LAMB OF GOD – is pleased to announce his upcoming photography exhibition, D RANDALL BLYTHE: Show Me What You’re Made Of, taking place from May 2 – June 30, 2015 at Sacred Gallery NYC. The opening reception will take place on May 2nd from 8-11pm.
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, D. Randall Blythe is the author of the forthcoming memoir Dark Days (to be published July 2015 by Perseus/Da Capo books in the USA, 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.
“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,” states Blythe. “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!”
