Request Appointment

Heron Arts is pleased to present B-Sides, a group show curated by Sean Yseult (White Zombie) of nine photographers who usually can be found in the recording studio instead of the dark room. Each artist was chosen based upon their bizarre, beautiful or unexpected photography. Purposefully avoiding life on the road, or backstage rock shots, the photos are meant to show the other side of the musician, the B-side.
