Houston’s Cactus Music, is branching out: the first "musicians as artists" show at its new "Record Ranch Gallery" opens Saturday, April 18 from 7-10 pm with baseball paintings by Will Johnson of the bands Centro-Matic and South San Gabriel. Says Johnson, "“I keep the medium simple: just acrylic paint on old floor scraps, MDF board, glass or whatever might be hanging around my house or storage room. I’m not trained at this, and I wouldn’t call these pieces high art necessarily, but I at least try to celebrate the importance and uniqueness of these pioneers, unsung heroes and American curiosities. I try to focus on the transmission of history through simple tribute. It’s a way of paying respect, a way getting to know the game I love even better.” Of course, there will be a live music, too.
