Max Elbo show, reception slated at KJ's Caribe

Wednesday, November 18, 2009

KJ's Caribe will host an Art Show and Artist's Reception featuring Max Elbo from 6 to 8 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 20.

According to Karen FitzPatrick, "Elbo has designed countless posters for benefits and fund-raising events even in the middle of his commissioned projects. Many have been helped by his art in some way. His magnificent Eureka Springs music festival posters are legendary. Restaurants in town treasure his highly collectible works adorning their walls, not just for their mystifying beauty and mind-blowing creativity, but because they come from this incredible human being.

"His designs for The Ariels' latest CD were so fantastic that the project was called 'Maxed Out.' Because he is a musician himself, he understands the importance of packaging for music-related projects. His covers, festival and gig posters, and T-shirt designs bait the eye and create a desire to hear the content."
