Welsh-born Chicago resident Jon Langford has entwined his artistic & musical careers for several decades. His love of American honky tonk music and its shared roots with English folk music both informs and inhabits his work.
Jim Sherraden has been an active printmaker since 1980, and since 1984 his work has been synonymous with Hatch Show Print, the iconic letterpress poster and design shop in Nashville, Tennessee.
This special exhibit features a blend of Sherraden’s woodcut artwork and Langford’s drawings. The duo’s singular collaborations started in 2016 with their sold-out series, Girl From The North Country, created in conjunction with the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum exhibition Dylan, Cash, and the Nashville Cats: A New Music City. Complicated Characters finds them further out on that limb, combining Sherraden's printmaking with Langford's painting.
