John Mellencamp: Life, Death, Love And Freedom Exhibit On View April 26th - June 2nd
We are pleased to announce contemporary artist John Mellencamp’s new art exhibition, Life, Death, Love, Freedom, opening at ACA Galleries on April 26, 2018 in New York. This is Mellencamp’s second solo exhibition with the gallery, and will showcase two bodies of work: Mellencamp’s sculptural assemblages and series of portraits.

“Mellencamp paints handsomely grotesque portraits in oil that are as solemn and stirring as his hit songs are catchy and inspirational -- depicting existential scenes and human beings ridden with the angst of the everyday” notes critic Doug McClemont.

Another great interview from John with Dan Rather! I am also loving that features most if not all of John's paintings. John is a great songwriter but his paintings stand up on their own, great stuff!

His answer to Dan Rather that if he still had the name “Cougar” then he would not be there for that interview at all speaks volumes about the guy. That’s why we like him.

No, there are no firm touring plans at this time. There are always proposals for tours for John to consider so perhaps he is on the cusp of accepting one of those proposals.
