DANBURY, Conn. -- The Western Connecticut State University Department of Art will hold an opening for a new Rock & Roll exhibit Thursday, Feb. 6, in Danbury.

The exhibit, "It's Only Rock & Roll: A Behind the Scenes Look at the Artists Who Capture its Spirit and Culture," will be on display through March 6.  

An opening reception will take place from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 6. The reception and exhibit are free and open to the public.

The exhibit includes work from photographers Allan Tannenbaum, Mallory Corr and Bibiana Huang Matheis, and illustrators Mike Dubois and AJ Masthay.

"Dubois’ work has been described as visionary, surrealistic and psychedelic," a press release said. "His unique style sets him apart as an original. Working in mixed media, oil painting and computer graphics, DuBois has established himself as a pioneer in the work of contemporary music art, with commissions by the Grateful Dead, The Allman Brothers Band, Hot Tuna, Levon Helm, Santana, The Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd and the Jimmy Hendrix estate."

Masthay "blends ancient techniques with modern vision to create truly unique works of art." 

Matheis is a fine arts photographer whose work "goes beyond traditional music and concert photographs," the press release said. 

The exhibit is on display at the Gallery at Higgins Hall on the university's midtown campus at 181 White St. in Danbury.
