Doors open at 7 PM
Lonnie Holley is a visual artist and musician based in Atlanta. His art and music, born out of struggle, hardship, but perhaps more importantly, out of furious curiosity and biological necessity, has manifested itself in drawing, painting, sculpture, photography, performance, and sound. His music and lyrics are improvised on the spot, and morph and evolve with every performance. The layers of sound in Holley’s music, likewise, are the result of decades of evolving experimentation.
