Critically lauded songwriter Ryan Adams will debut a new collection of his original paintings and mixed media collages at the Morrison Hotel Gallery's Bowery space on September 23. Adams, best known for his output as a musician, has been quietly developing as a similarly gifted visual artist for years. Three weeks prior to the opening, Adams will become Morrison Hotel Gallery's first artist in residence, creating additional canvases in the front of the gallery to be auctioned off at the opening. Proceeds from the auction will go to benefit the Housing Works Bookstore Cafe, a nonprofit organization committed to ending the twin crises of AIDS and homelessness.
