Bob Dylan – Dirt Road Blues


Let’s simply start by saying two words, Bob Dylan – the revolutionary man that has changed minds & inspired millions.

Byron Bay’s Retrospect Galleries thought it only fitting that this legend be honoured and celebrated with The Dirt Road Blues, an exhibition that ponders, reflects and portrays Dylan in all of his glory. In this group show, artists respond to the legacy of his incredible lyrics and music. The multifarious works range from lyric interpretations right through to portraits of the great man in performance mode.

The Dirt Road Blues exhibition opens TONIGHT as the legend himself flies into town, ready to headline a powerhouse line-up at the 2011 Byron Bay Blues Fest.  This Byron Bay event won a swag of awards in 2010 including 2010 Australian Event of the Year, Best Cultural or Arts Event and the 2010 The International ‘A Greener Festival ‘Award.

Dare we say that this wide-ranging body of works reflects the depth of variation in Dylan’s own musical career? Decide for yourself!
Retrospect Galleries Byron Bay proudly and humbly honour this man with beautiful, humourous, enigmatic and energetic works on show from Thursday April 21 to May 10.
