New Album Art- The Congress EP

I’ve had the pleasure of designing the album art for The Congress’ new EP, which will be distributed at an early release party on Dec 26th at Emilio’s on Broad Street in Richmond.  The Congress, the newest musical endeavour by Scott Lane and Jonathan Meadows, has been playing in clubs and bars all around Colorado and Virginia.  Tracing their musical roots to Richmond bands of days gone by such as the Grove, Meadows and Lane relocated to Colorado just over a year ago to pursue their musical dreams in a new setting and have found great success while touring there.

The album art features multiple views of my samurai painting (seen here) and a great photograph by Matt Greer on the reverse face.  Be sure to check these guys out, they’re a great blend of American rock, soul and funk music and it’s music you can keep coming back to.  Cheers!congressalbumcover

Now accepting commissions!

Been working on a handful of new paintings, both personal work and commissions for others.  Stay tuned to the gallery for new examples as we’ll be updating regularly over the next several weeks.

If you’re interested in having a new painting of your choosing, I’m currently accepting commissions on a variety of subjects.  At the moment, I’m primarily focused on action-portraiture (people working in their environment) and landscapes, but I’m open to whatever you’re looking for.  Take a look at some of my work in the painting gallery and see for yourself.  If you have questions, feel free to email dave@daveklemencic.com for further details, quotes and to set up an appointment to look at some samples firsthand.

EQ Produktions Article in RVA Mag

RVA Magazine, Richmond’s premier underground culture and music mag has posted a great write-up on EQ Produktions, a local music promoting business founded by Jesse Pruitt and Mike Holderfield, friends that have worked closely with the local music scene over the last few years. They’ve broken out over the last year or so, expanding their reach and presence in the area, all the while bringing attention to an excellent and diverse group of musicians. Last winter (December and March) I added my live drawing projections to several of their shows (Existor and Pretty Lights, Orchard Lounge) and received a mention in the article as well as several shots of my work at their shows.
Take a look!

Art Opening this Friday, April 3 @ Grace Yoga

This Friday, April 3 Grace Yoga will be hosting “Easy Alliances”, an exhibition of art created by Dave Decker and myself. The opening runs from 7-10, with live music by LarJar featuring Dave Decker will begin at 8 p.m. Dave’s work is incredible, and we’ve forged a friendship over the last ten years that’s included innumerable musical performance and art exhibition.

Grace Yoga is located at 209 N. Foushee Street between Grace and Broad, and is a part of the First Friday art walk. Deirdre Nivala has been instrumental in putting the show together, and has curated shows at Grace Yoga, Artemis Gallery and a number of other Richmond art spaces.
