An artistic crossover is unfolding at Lighthouse ArtCenter in Tequesta. Part-time Jupiter Island residents Jason and Nicole Newsted will unveil “Like Mind,” an exhibition of their art, January 19.
You may recognize Jason as the six-time Grammy-winning and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame bassist of Metallica. In addition to his musical pursuits, Jason has honed his skills as a multimedia artist. His work occasionally pays homage to music, with abstract guitars front and center, while the rest showcases otherworldly subjects bursting with vibrant color and texture.
Nicole is also an accomplished painter, whose pieces appear in collections across the globe. In contrast with her husband, Nicole has an eye for the whimsical. She often zeros in on the sweetness in life, capturing candies, stuffed animals, and other saccharine subjects in saturated works of maximalist brilliance.
Curated by Janeen Mason, the exhibition will be on view through March 1. Admission to the gallery is a $5 suggested donation. In addition, Jason will perform a solo benefit concert February 11, with tickets priced at $100 and attendance limited to 100.
